Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA) Director General Mr Andrew Kumbatira has been redeployed back to Malawi Postal Corporation (MPC) as Post Master General, a post he had served before taking the highest role at the regulatory body.
Malawi24 understands that he will be replaced by Godfrey Itaye who was until this development the Post Master General.
Kumbatira was credited for MPC's turnaround strategy which saw the corporation posting profit following years of operating as one of the perpetually loss making government entities.
According to Kumbatira, the revitalisation of MPC was based on successful implementation of its strategic plan since 2011.
"Post offices have now become one stop service centres where people can send and receive letters, dispatch and collect parcels, buy airtime units, send and receive money, pay water and electricity bills or even access the Internet," said Kumbatira to local media.
He said apart from its licences with MACRA, MPC also has a permit from the Reserve Bank of Malawi for provision of financial services.
He said MPC has also invested US$1 million into the automation of its counters through which all its post offices will be interlinked to communicate online, real time.
