The Case of The Unofficial Malawi Diplomat

It is with profound pride and joy that I announce that on 21 August 2013, the IT Compliance and Assurance Section which I was leading at Eskom South Africa until I left for Canada in on 10 August 2013, was awarded a Special 2013 Enterprise Development Managers’ Award under the Vision category.

Bravo to the team! Too bad I was not there to accept the honor together with the team. I am very proud of the team for believing in me as their Manager and a job well done as Eskom Guardians contributing to Eskom’s service of powering South Africa and its economy. Thank you South Africa for a great four and a half years of my career hosting me and my family since 2009 but I had to move on to the next chapter of my journey for my family and my country Malawi. God is great.

To my South African friends at Eskom, please note that what you used to call your unofficial “Malawi Embassy” is no longer in my office, for further assistance on information about Malawi, please contact the official diplomatic missions in Pretoria or Sunninghill.

It was great.

    Great job, my brother. It is a shame that our country cannot appreciate the gems she is losing to other countries. But as the Big Book, says, what are rubbies to pigs? Go well and shine as you have done wherever you have been. But remember, you only have until 20 May 2014. After that it is recall to homeland duty – at gunpoint if need be!

    I am not in the least surprised with your accomplishments. The recognition is well deserved. It is not surprising that it comes from a South African Company. I doubt that it would have been the case in Malawi. Your philosophy about ‘leading without a title’ will take ages to catch on among a certain class here. One must have a ‘PhD’ to be considered a leader here. Perhaps you should evolve the philosophy to ‘hiding behind a title’!

    It is a day of happiness when boys from home are recognised in far away land.

    As Charles is saying we will need you here soonest to do what you have always done since you left college.
