Anjimile Mtila Oponyo: PS Education

Anjimile Mtila Oponyo was hired by Madonna to run a school for girls the US pop star set up in Malawi, although that project collapsed and she was sacked.

Accoridng to published reports on Wednesday, Anjimile Mtila Oponyo  reported for duties at the ministry’s Capital Hill headquarters on Monday this week.
