Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) Governor Dalitso Kabambe has come to dispel rumours circulating on social media that he has been fired by the President Lazarus Chakwera administration.
Kabambe said he hasn't received any communication on the same.
"I haven't heard that," said Kabambe, a former Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
"In fact, I called the Chief Secretary (to Government) and he also appears to say that hasn't happened. So I dont have any communication. Unless... you have a different message," said Kabambe.
However, RBM spokesperson Mbane Ngwira could not deny or confirm when asked to comment.
"It has not been announced by the Government," he said.
Kabambe was appointed as RBM Governor in 2017 by former president Peter Mutharika. His removal rumours at RBM comes after Mutharika was defeated by Chakwera in the Presidential Elections.
