Government has appointed Dr Alfred Chanza as the Chief Executive Officer for Blantyre City Council with immediate effect.
Chanza replaces Ted Nandolo, whose suspension was lifted and has been redeployed to the Malawi Gaming Board as one of the directors.
“The onus is now on me to show what I am capable of doing for the city as well as the government. But above all, I thank God for this. Surely, the appointment did not just come,” said Chanza, former PS II at the Labour Ministry.
Chanza holds a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Commerce (industrial psychology) and a Master of Arts degree in Labour Relations and Human Resources, among other academic qualifications.
Before his appointment, he has been acting CEO for close to one year and he also served as Director of Administrative Services between 2006 and 2014.
Meanwhile, the Mayor Councillor Noel Chalamanda and all councilors, management and staff of the Council has welcomed and congratulated him on this appointment.
