The social media analysis has proved that a good number of Malawians are disappointed. Saying the cabinet goes against the Tonse Philosophy, which focused on inclusiveness.
Speaking to Zodiak radio, Spokesperson of the public Affairs Committee Bishop Gilford Matonga, expressed worry over the presidents decision saying ” the reason Malawians voted overwhelmingly for Tonse alliance was the feeling that there is going to be an all inclusive government, and the manifestation of inclusivity should have started by manifesting itself in the composition of the cabinet members, we should have seen that there is a proper representation from the regions, proper representation from probably the tribes that we have in this country. But when we have family members,or family linked members that bring allot of sadness to Malawians who voted DPP out”.

Commenting on the matter Zomba based political commentator Vincent kondowe said ” To me its a disappointment, it’s a fall from the race because when you critically analyze and look at the cabinet it’s a cabinet of family members, cabinet of friends. Off course here and there you see, there are some technocrats and that maybe the president was trying to balance competing political interest while at the same time trying to drive his agenda. But largely in trying to balance those political interest he has failed largely to portray a cabinet that fulfills the vision of the nation on which the Tonse alliance was campaigning”.
On the contrary the Chancellor collage based political analyst Mustafa Hussein called for Patience and time. “I know some of there capabilities have been shown before, they are perfomers, they can deliver. With the inspiration or the dearest, The Tonse alliance Philosophy, I am hopeful that this team can help the president realise his dreams”.
Hence the president has called for a meeting with The Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) to hear from their part from 1pm today.
