Malawi President Peter Mutharika has openly said he will not spare any of his Ministers who are involved in corrupt acts under his reign.

The Malawi leader issued this warning during the swearing-in ceremony for Minister of Transport and Public Works Malison Ndau and Deputy Minister of Defence Agrey Masi at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe on Tuesday.

Mutharika said he would love the two to deliver and live to their expectations in exercise of their duties.

”I will expect these ministers to provide me with honest and objective advice, to tell me the facts as they know them, not what they think I want to hear. Together we will surmount the challenges and transform our nation from poverty to prosperity.”

Recently, Mutharika made changes on his Ministerial bearers.

In the changes, Chaponda got  dragged to the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development replacing Allan Chiyembekeza who has been completely booted out of the Mutharika cabinet.

It was highly speculated that Chiyembekeza was fired due to under-performance something which the Malawi leader laughed off.
