Mixed reactions as President Chakwera starts working from Capital Hill

Posted in

On February 19, 2023, Presidential Press Secretary Anthony Kasunda informed the nation about Chakwera’s intention to work from his Capital Hill Office.

However, this has not gone down well with social and political commentators such as Lucky Mbewe and Latim Matenje who argued that this will not be in the best interest of Malawians.

Mbewe said a lot of resources are wasted when the President travels and “he is only trying to clear his name on how erroneously the country is being governed”.

Previously, Press Secretary to the President, Anthony Kasunda, said President Chakwera has been working from home at the State House since he was elected and this will be the first time for him to operate from the Office of the President and Cabinet premises.
