A CALL TO SERVE
As you may probably already have heard, today the State President Dr Lazarus M. Chakwera has appointed me to be his press secretary. Allow me to thank him greatly for entrusting me with this huge responsibility.
To all colleagues in the media in Malawi, I want you to know that you have a friend at the State House. I do realize the need to have a vibrant media fraternity if the servant leadership His Excellency Dr Lazarus Chakwera talks about is to bear fruits. As Oscar Auliq-ice once said, “Independence of the media, freedom of the press, freedom of expression and the right of access to information are vital if the media are to be able to perform their watchdog function in a democratic society governed by the rule of law.” And let us not forget: respect for the rule of law is one of the fundamental pillars of this President’s agenda.
As I join the President’s team I will rely on your support. This is the only country we have and it is our duty, all of us, to rebuild it with our own hands. Let us join the President in creating “Malawi wokomera tonse”.
I am going to the State House as your servant, destined to serve you all. When my time there is over, I will return to the only place I have called home, the newsroom, and will continue right from where I have stopped.
Let us all join hands to build a new and better Malawi.
