United Democratic Front (UDF) President Atupele Muluzi has appointed Yusuf Mwawa as Acting National Publicity Secretary.

Mwawa’s appointment follows arrest of UDF Publicity Secretary Ken Ndanga on suspicion that he sponsored the torching of United Transformation Movement (UTM) offices in the capital Lilongwe which led to the death of three family members.

This has been confirmed in letter signed by UDF Secretary General Kandi Padambo made available to faceofmalawi.

“I write to advise that it has pleased the party President, Rt. Honourable Atupele Muluzi to approve the appointment of Honourable Yusuf Mwawa as Acting National Publicity Secretary with immediate effect. This follows the regrettable circumstances involving the arrest and subsequent charging of Hon. Ken Ndanga.

“Honourable Yusuf Mwawa is substantively the party’s National Director of Research and will exercise the duties and responsibilities of the office of National Publicity Secretary until the judicial conclusion of the matter in which Honourable Ken Ndanga is suspected to have been involved,” reads in part the letter

He added: “Please join me in congratulating Hon. Yusuf Mwawa for his acting appointment and wishing him well in discharging his added onerous and challenging responsibilities.”

Meanwhile Ndanga is still in police cell.
