The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) through Deputy Publicity Secretary Ezekiel Ching’oma has clarified on the rumour that Chakwera’s famous bodyguard Bickieel Kapuchi has been dumped by State House.
Kapuchi, a Norman Chisale look alike has been CHakwera’s bodyguard since 2013, however, his name is missing on the list of State House supporting stuff.
Speaking to Akometsi.com, Ezekiel Ching’oma said Kapuchi cannot be dropped by the president.
“What people need to understand is that Dr. Chakwera is now head of state, not just MCP president. There are formalities that people working closely with him to familiarize themselves with. Mr Kapuchi has been going through this etiquette training and he will soon join the president at the state house,” said Ching’oma.
The issue surfaced from MCP professional WhatsApp groups where people questioned why the bodyguard was missing despite being a loyal servant for the president for many years.
