Information sourced by faceofmalawi indicates that President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has fired Patricia Kaliati from his 20 member Cabinet due to a quarrel she had with the Party’s Secretary General Grizeder Jeffrey wa Jeffrey on Wednesday.

Mutharika fired Kaliati as Minister of Civic Education, Culture and Community Development on Thursday and replaced her with Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) deputy secretary general Cecilia Chazama.

Presidential Press Officer Mgeme Kalilani did not explain the reason why Mutharika has relieved Kaliati of her duties.

But inside sources told FOM’s reporter that the President made his decision based on the reported argument the two had.

Kaliati got angry with Jeffrey because she failed to recognize her during the launch of the 8th Phase of the Malawi Rural Electrification Programme (MAREP).

Kaliati was heard shouting at Jeffrey “Kodi mwabwera liti muchipani inu?”

It took the intervention of the Minister of Minister of Information, Nicholas Dausi calm down the two.

“They nearly exchanged blows, thanks to honorable Dausi who came in to cool down the tension. The President was briefed and was not happy with happened,” said the source.

Meanwhile Kaliati has said she is not bitter with Mutharika’s decision.
