Govt Denies To Have Fired AG Kaphale: ‘That’s Propaganda, Ignore It’-Dausi
Malawi government has moved in swiftly to dismiss social media rumors spreading on Thursday that Finance, Economic Planning and Development Minister Goodall Gondwe and attorney General Kalekeni Kaphale had been dismissed.
Minister of Information and Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi said President Peter Mutharika had not fired any of the two.
“Honourable Goodall Gondwe remains Minister of Finance and Economic Development whilst Mr Kalekeni Kaphale remains Attorney General,” said Dausi.
He said there are channels of communication when top government officials are dismissed from government.
The government spokesman said reports of the two being dismissed are “misleading, deceptive and fallacious.”
Dausi cautioned people against rumour mongering.
Apparentl, Chokhotho worked in the private law firm of Kaphale before.
