Magande to replace Chikwanda?

An intensified campaign to have Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda removed from the PF government and replace him with his counterpart in the former MMD administration Ng’andu Magande has been exposed.

But when contacted Mr Magande expressed ignorance on the matter  saying he had not heard anything with regards to such an appointment.

He said “these offers have to be considered. One needs to take a lot of serious consideration before making any decision.  I can’t say whether I will accept the position because it has not been mentioned to me”.

Highly placed officials at Cabinet Office told the Daily Nation that Mr Chikwanda was being implicated in fabricated road contracts in which he was supposed to have been involved.
