An educationist, Dr Anjimile Mtila Oponyo worked for the World Bank, International Monetray Fund and at the UN headquarters in New York for some time.

She is a graduate of George Washington University where she received her Masters in 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.
