Minister of Civic Education and National Unity, Timothy Mtambo has accepted the resignation by his Personal Assistant Lyson Sibande.
Sibande resigned following a social media storm as critics slammed Mtambo for appointing someone who has been very critical of the current leadership.
In his resignation letter, Sibande said he regretted how he treated the Lazarus Chakwera leadership and decided to step down because he found that his critics had a true case.
But addressing the media in Lilongwe today, Mtambo said he respects Sibande’s stand and has rightfully accepted his resignation.
” I have worked with him [Sibande] at CFT and he proved to be good that is why I picked him for this task and its unfortunate that things have turned out this way. I hail Malawians for rising to question my move,” said Mtambo.
Sibande was one of the popular writers on the social media that were critical of the moves and ideas by Chakwera and the developed Tonse Alliance.
As part of the uproar against his appointment as PA for Mtambo, people shared his previous posts before questioning the minister for appointing him.
