Lawyer Mambulasa and Auditor Ngoma nominated to serve as MISA Malawi NGC members
The Malawi Chapter of the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA Malawi) would like to inform the membership that the National Governing Council (NGC) has nominated Lawyer Mandala Mambulasa and Auditor Wiza Mwenitete Ngoma as co-opted NGC members.
The decision of the NGC is in line with a 2011 MISA Malawi Annual General Meeting (AGM) resolution mandating the NGC to co-opt two people with a legal and financial background.
Mambulasa and Mwenitete have both served as co-opted MISA Malawi NGC members. Mambulasa has served in that capacity since 2012 and his term will expire in December 2017. He will help the Chapter identify a suitable replacement between now and December. Mwenitete has been with the Chapter since 2014 and has accepted to serve for a second term.
We are grateful to continue working with Mambulasa and Mwenitete and trust that the membership will welcome and support the two as they help build MISA Malawi.

MISA Malawi members met at Blantyre Sports Club on September 10, 2011 and
endorsed a proposal to amend Article VI Section 6.1 of the MISA Malawi
Constitution in line with resolutions of the MISA Regional Governing
Council (RGC)/ Trust Fund Board (TFB) meeting that was held earlier in the same
year in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The RGC/TFB resolved several important issues including the need to amend
local MISA Constitutions to reduce the number of elected members to the
National Governing Council (NGC). The MISA TFB, the supreme authority of
MISA, reviewed and approved several recommendations of the Moore Stephens
report – a Consultant’s assessment of MISA Chapters across the region in
2010 – for MISA Chapters to reduce the number of elected members to the
NGC from 7 to three and to co-opt two members with a financial and legal
mind to sit on the Council.
To that effect the 2011 MISA Malawi AGM amended Article VI Section 6.1 of
the MISA Malawi Constitution in line with the MISA Regional Constitution.
As amended, Article VI of the MISA Malawi Constitution provides for
co-option of two members with a legal and accounting background to sit on
