Mwapasa: Fired!

This is according to a leaked ESCOM internal memo issued on Thursday, November 9 and signed by Director of Human Resources and Administration, D. Z Namandwa.

In the statement, Namandwa said Mwapasa has been replaced by Alexon Chiwaya with effect from November 6.
The statement further states that Mwapasa has been redeployed within the public sector.

This is coming hours after people in the country’s capital city of Lilongwe protested against continued blackouts which have hit hard most parts of country.

  1. mmm the issue is Bushiri just becos she gave in an ok order …and the goverment is furious as they did with Football association when they got help from him then but development is for people not for govt …we lack people who can love the people and not political parties

  2. I hate gender based violence thinking.

    Come out of that evil box you people.
    Being a woman does not disqualify one to take any position.
    Any woman qualified for that post can deliver as equally as men.

    Gender based violence thinking and speach I hate coz they are evil.

  3. APM is busy firing people but he is the one who has messed up this country.The only solution is not firing the innocent people is for you to step down falling which we will fire you 2019.

  4. We Were Facing The Same Challenges During Bingu’s Rule.When Joyce Banda Took Over The Office The Problem Vanished.This Has Got Somethng To Do With The Political Issues.We Call It ‘the Underground Movement’.Honestly Speaking “i Hate Ths DPP”

  5. If a soldier is not well equipped how is gonna fight the battle. ….stop blinding us….the best way is to seek investors outside the country. ….the problem the egineers we produce in our colleges cant even make a wooden tooth pick….thus why even today ….Together with same graduate we still buy tooth pick imported from China….now should we say we don’t have trees….kuzichepesa a malawi kumativuta ndikuvomereza zomwe sitingathe…

  6. And even now, as we pay our tributes to the fallen Mwapasa with our anonymous posts of goodluck to her and shortlive the goverment, another fall out in its own kind, and one that Malawian hearts concede positively with even drop of thanksgiving in entirety lurks. The 5000kwacha note goddamn it! Everything was wrong even before it was to happen! And today! We have more thieves on the outside than on the inside, we have more intellectuals than man-power, we have more students than teachers, we have more patients than medical personnel, we spend more on smartphones than food, we have more people qualified for field work drinking coffee in the office, we have a lot of people going to school than going to work, we prefer experience we trust to find in retirees than inject fresh blood to bring about change, we have but all developed a culture of spending than earning and saving, we’ve lost the vital pride that can lift this poverty-stricken country to great heights to suit everyones comfort, we have many graduates still writing letters to certain posts than investing to make their own doors knocked on for contracts, we focus on today and tomorrow and not the 50years to come, we look for recognition and high praise than starve ourselves for a measure long run of success, we do not appreciate when good is done, when called to action, we fall short because of our lack of enthusiasm. Enthusiasm to love and enjoy what we do. There are a lot of bullets of truth to kill a Malawian heart but he wont die, he doesn’t accept the truth. So good luck to Mwapasa, Go find yourself a hole to hide in but SHORT-LIVE THIS GOVERNMENT

  7. My Advice to RVG Make Sure The Team Is Playing Attacking Football Icould Be Happy If He Use 3 5 2 Systems We Need Goals Although It Is Afriendly Match Bt This Game Will Paint Apicture On Hw The Flames Can Stand The Heat Of Morroco And Cammeron Next Year.All The Best To Flames.

  8. It’s the government that has failed & not mwapasa ,how can the government expect mwapasa to deliver if she has no resources? shame to you the Malawi Government. what you know is corruption but failing to run the country yet you have all the resources.

  9. My friend you don’t know what you are talking this woman was good at work even Joice too was good, if you are saying so that means you don’t know what is good and what is bad.

  10. Firing mwapasa it is nt the solving the problem, Escom and goverment should come out with solid plan to solve this persistent blackouts, the country cant develop without electricty

  11. Inu was dat e way of empowerng women? Mwaonatu mavuto omwe amabwela!!

    Let her go & takecare 4 ha family,
    mpando umeneu ukufunika osetela zikonyo nt tissu-paper.

  12. Malawi, as a nation, has some challenges as problems of our own making.
    This country has people and resources but it is “we” ,Malawians, who are to blame.

  19. Fired or Redeployed somewhere? Fired means removed sent home made jobless.She has been transferred to another job not firing terminology

  20. vuto ndilakuti a Malawi till today sitinavomelezebe kuti mzimayi nayeso ndi munthu oti atha kukwanisa…..

  21. Govnerment is right because some a taking it in politics just they are in frant.well done remaing one that one who send people to cut power of bills while no power.

  22. Why are you trusting women too much, putting them in higher position, don’t u know God created a man before women, if we keep on putting this women in higher position, believe me we will face more challenges in our country

  23. The problem is not who is in charge of ESCOM but the government…It doesn’t matter who leads the company as long as the politicians interfere and milk it..

  24. Kkkkkkkkkk Peter has completely lost direction,M’mimba ndi muchipaladi, Bingu anali munthu oganiza kwambiri while this guy is always beating about the bush. Kkkkkkkkkk

  25. aaaaaaaaaaa bwanji ndimayesa kuti mumune apangila fire boss zinthu lero zisintha ,and lero tungochaso tayamba ndi black out nde zikuonesa kuti palibe chingasibthe aaaaaa nde apanga palibe aaaaaaaaaa

  26. I dont think its the solution to the problem may but am not sure There must be a problem even though you can fire all the staff members i hope it wont sort it out.

  27. comenting on these isues yeilds nothng. boma limadana ndi kuthetsa vto la magets, imagne hw the electricty bill ws discusd last year, mot 200 MPs palibe anaganiza zot if mor campanies were alowed 2 sell their enegy the problem wld hav bin solved?

  28. How many times have fired Flames’ coaches? Has the national team improved! What does it tell you? If there is NO WILL, nothing will improve!

  29. m’malaw vuto amakhomerera munthu akakhala ndi nzeru wina ku nzimba anapanga magetsi oyendera mphepo anankanza m’malo mongopanga naye umodzi kumafusa nzeru bax amafuna zimenez kut anthu azitibera mma coridom magetsi akazima akuyenera kuganza sharp be4.

  30. At last one incompetent fool gone. Who is next ? Please appoint someone that has run a electrical large electrical utility successfully. You need to get the correct person in this position not a friend of a politician or a uncle or aunt….

  31. Mwapasa is related to the Mutharikas,she will be given another job elsewhere.This is just stage managed to save face and find a scapegoat

  32. but these reporters ..to my understanding she has just been redeployed to another field as manager as well.Its like the way he used to to reshuffle cabinet ministers.. firing means that has been left jobless.. Malawi will never go higher with such kinds of reporting issues.

    • You are quite correct in that they never seem to fire anyone as in leaving them jobless. They move them to another department where they continue being unable to do the job as required. I also agree that the reporting is very often quite off the mark, but to me that is just a frustration. Malawi will never go up not because of poor reporting ( although that needs to be addressed for sure) but because of this ‘firing you but here’s your new job’-thing. I am sure there are up and coming young people who are eager, willing and able to take up these important postions?

    • English is just a langauge and not a measure of intelligence. these reporters they only know how to write english but they are not intellectully good in how to use english words when reporting issues for people to understand.

  33. The first ddp defueled the country and when one took ova the gvt,the country was abundantly refuelled.The new dpp de_electrify the country,what do u think could be the solution?

  34. akazi ndachani amalawi pantchito zaphindu ngat zmenezo muziwaika child afear amenewo olo kapena ku zakulela osat ku magesi kupusa bac kapena mkufna kutamandidwa nd maiko aazanu kt mkuyika azimai pasogolo?? mkupusa sangazakuvotereso anthu mkuchita zaukape bolaso akulu anu aja inu nde nyasi manyowa eni eni..

  39. Thus agud development, she was nt fit for her position, being an officer u need to look forward for all the challanges ur going to face.
    Mwapasa was paid for being achief officer, if we blame the President, wat was the meaning of Mwapasa’s position?

  40. That’s just collateral damage in a quest to further their political careers. They just want to be seen that they’re doing something about this crisis.

  41. Guys kodi ndizosatheka kukhala ndi ma pump akulu oti atha kuyika kusi kwa ma turbine opangila magetsi aja kumawabweza madzi amene agwila kale ntchito kuti azipitaso Ku ntunda kusiyana ndikumawaleka kuti azipita onse Ku Zambezi river

  50. Firing CEO’s cannot solve the woes Escom is in. Bingu fired Kandi Padambo using same reasons of black outs. Did the problems vanish? No. The problem is the govt.

  51. Si kuchepa kwa madzi koma otsutsa boma ndi omwe akugwirizana nd a escom kuti azichitsa ma black outs pofuna kuipitsa mbiri ya boma sikut amalawi sakudziwa zimenez ayi

  52. Actually I did not read the post but I think the girl has no right to beat up her boyfriend in public. Maybe they should report the matter to their village elders but if the neighbour refuse to pay his rent they should just kill the landlord and forget about the missing car

  53. I blame government for putting a woman at first place to lead such an important organization, women are good at house keeping and taking care of kids, a good example is Joyce Banda she messed up everything and run away!

  54. Comment On This Reserved,but Zovotazo Nde Ngat Ndtasowa Omuvotera Ndie Bola Kungokhala,nanga Mpaka Kuvotera Satana Oyankhulayo Kungomva Kut Mukufuna Magetsi Osathima Esh Kaya Zanu Nd Miracle Poweryo

    • But you also have to take into account that this problem can’t solved overnight, check the population , check the environmental de gradetion. Very unfortunate that this government came at this troubled time otherwise had it been that previous governments thought of the future this problem couldn’t have been a problem today. Of course new machines but they’ll need water since they are hydro driven. Thanks for your understanding

    • When you say this government what do you mean?. DPP has been in power for 11 years besides the 2 yr break which PP took over the leadership. And the people governing now were Ministers in the previous government including the president himself. What did he do to invest in the future?. This is not a blame game. Let them solve what they are supposed to solve that putting blame on others. Ngati zawakanika anene

  63. Chimzimayi chimathumimitsa magetsi ndi chimenechi eti mbuzi ya munthu achita bwino kukuchotsa bola usamuuze pothimitsira magetsi amene abwereyo popatsana ma handover
