Malawi Leader Names New Cabinet

After suddenly firing all his ministers over graft concerns, Malawian President Lazarus Chakwera reappointed most of them to a new cabinet on Wednesday, IgbereTV reports.

Chakwera sacked his entire 33-member cabinet on Monday, vowing to “confront all forms of lawless conduct by public officials”.

However, a list of 12 ministerial appointments released by his office just after midnight on Wednesday includes only two new faces. Well-known businessman and politician Mark Katsonga Phiri becomes trade minister while ruling party loyalist Sam Kawale takes over as lands minister.

Kawale replaces Kezzie Msukwa, who was arrested last month for bribery.

Key portfolios such as finance, defence and foreign affairs are yet to be announced
