The appointments has shown that the Chakwera administration is not a Government of pleasing Chola boys ( Hand clappers) but it is a merit based leadership.
The Following are some of Chairpersons of Key Parastatals; –
ESCOM – Mr Chokani Mhango

The 67 Boards of Parastatals is very impressive. 90 % of those who have been appointed are Professionals.
One notable thing ; There are few Traditional Leaders ( Chiefs) who have been appointed unlike in the previous administrations where several Chiefs made it .
One Clear signal : – President Chakwera and his Vice Saulos Chilima are draining the swamp. Bomali likhaladi lokomera tonse. Abusa sakugawa masiwiti! Abusa ndi a Vice awo ali serious kukonza dziko.
Roja that !
