its a welcome idea but lets critically analyze it, how people of different political agendas can work together? Atupele is inspiring the same position how is he going to put his effort to develop that ministry position? Madam think wisely they will be the same people 2014 compaining for your position

Its vital to have this newly cabinet, on Cassim Chilumpha it doesn't make sense at all, remember any other opposition they will use your miss apointment on general election and you wont be successed with this error. Mind dont use too much emonsions than development. People they want to see a different.

But i thought the newly elected Justice Minister is on court bail for the criminal offence he committed? President Joyce Banda i thought you were a law abiding citizen how come giving ministerial position to somebody who has a case pending. Does that show any seriousness in your government. How many Lawyers do we have in Malawi? You have messed up your credibility Mrs.
