Lazarus Chakwera keeps tight lid on AG ouster


President Lazarus Chakwera Sunday refused to outline grounds that prompted him to sack Attorney General (AG) Chikosa Silungwe.

Briefing reporters at Kamuzu International Airport on arrival from the United Kingdom, Chakwera said, in any contract, people agree on deliverables and that, when some of the things are not met, tables are bound to turn.

Chakwera further said he believed in respect for people, citing it as the reason he would not be in a position to publicise grounds behind the firing of Silungwe.


“At this level, for example, even if I reshuffle Cabinet, I don’t have to explain to anyone why I have made some decisions,” he said.

He also trashed reports that he had appointed his daughter, Violet, to work in a diplomatic mission in Brussels.

During the briefing, Chakwera also urged Malawians to support fellow Malawians representing the country abroad rather than pulling them down.


He also urged Malawians to use social media responsibly.

Chakwera spoke against the tendency of some Malawians to use social media to spread falsehood.

On the creation of one million jobs, the Malawi leader said the promise was achievable and that the government would deliver the much-needed jobs to Malawians.
