President Peter Mutharika is furious with his press secretary who is believed to have leaked his speech to the opposition camp two hours before His arrival at the BICC for the Mlakho wa Alomwe function.
Malawi Punch accessed the speech which was later delivered by Mutharika around 21 hours. Following the speech through state and tax payer funded MBC, the speech was exactly the same which we had been sent from State House by a press man who we can not disclose for fear of losing his job.
Mutharika is suspecting his new press secretary might have been hacked. Mutharika believes what happened on 5 August evening had never happened in His life as State president except once when He went to America in April 2015 for International Caucus Gala Foundation whose speech was released in Malawi before He had spoken. It was then believed that Bright Malopa made the quick release.
The State House official who share us the hot story says Mutharika quizzed Mukhitho on how his speech got found in the hands of Strangers” before He had spoken.
Mukhitho is expected to chair a meeting through his Deputy director general to iron out steam that has engulfed Press section. Mgeme is the forth press secretary after Ndala, Timpunza and Viola in a space of two years. It is understood that Mutharika is controlled by Ben Phiri, Norman Paulos Chisale and Gertrude Maseko to employ and fire State House Staff.
State House has three sections of Lomwe belt employees of Ben, Ntcheu employees of Chisale and Balaka employees of Gertrude. Anyone outside these sections has short living in State House.
