Former President Bingu wa Mutharika’s family of his wife Callista and her step children is still divided and cannot see each other eye to eye over the alleged K92 billion estate the former head of state left.

Callista, not in black mourning attire which she had donned on such occasions in the past years, did not even give a handshake to the former president’s children neither did she speak to them.

The children looked isolated, rejected and dejected at the Bingu Memorial Mass Service held at village Kamoto village in Chief Chimaliro’s area in Thyolo on Saturday.

Some reports say the children did not even lay wreaths at Mpumulo wa bata at Goliati where Mutharika and his first wife Esther lay side by side.

Callista, who married Mutharika two years after the death of his wife has been embroiled in family fight for the control of late Bingu’s wealth including the multimillion Ndata House.

The former first lady and the children have even fought legal battles in courts over the multibillion wealth which some sections of society allege is a loot from state coffers.

President Peter Mutharika, who was the guest of honour at the memorial service looked helpless and hopeless on the matter.

He might be bringing the broken family behind the curtains to pacify them.

    Maybe she needs to grow up and be the adult in this matter. Misunderstandings are normal but ignoring the children at such an event is shameful.
    Family needs to be united in public eyes and fight in private.

    @analyst. That’s good piece of advise. Why remarry at old age? and again when you have amassed so much wealth it clear whosoever is coming in is not in there for marriage but wealth.; so sad

  11. Callista, are you trying to show that late Bingu did not leave anything for you. I’m quite sure that you have a house, farm and house materials that late Bingu left for you to own. If this is true, then be satisfied with what was given to you as a share. You have seen with your eyes that in Ndata you have no place because even the grave yard, there is late Bingu and Ethel lying side by side. Do you want to be there watching that? When your time comes that you die, where do you want people to burry you, on the side where Bingu is lying or the side of Ethel. Educated as you are, do you mean up until now you don’t know that when one dies, the wealth belongs to the children? What precedence are you leaving to happen to your child when you die?

    the wealth is for children not mother period

  15. J. Chagoma says:

    Hatred will take us nowhere. My only hope is that APM will intervene if this story is anything to go by. To the children and Callista, your only sin is that you are connected to Bingu who people suspect of looting from the Government though there is no evidence. Otherwise such issues are common including among those who are commenting and mocking you here.

  16. Uyu mukuti Mr. Ibuyutu sangaluzanitse anthu amenewa pamodzi ayi. He’s a failure, he failed to solve the academic saga while he was minister education during big kahuna’s rule. He is also failing to run the affairs of this state.

    Kodi anthu inu mukufuna Callista adzilira mpaka liti? Kodi adzivalabe nsalu za kuda mpaka pano? Tsopano Callista ali vacant, achina Jappie Mhango akhoza kufunsirako! Chuma chobera a Malawi ichi!

  19. PMK says:

    The looted wealth will divide the family forever. These are to fight till they die. The wealth was meant to save the lives of many suffering Malawians who are dying prematurely because bingu was more evil to loot public funds for himself only.
    The dead souls will haunt the bingu family till they die. They can’t enjoy but azikhala moyo wobalalika ndi ndalama zakubazo.
    Galuyu APM will never bring any solution to this family for himself also is not at peace because the dead souls are haunting him.

  20. Mbonga Matoga says:

    Whatever the problems are, between Callista and her step children, she should have shown some respect not only to her late husband but also to the people who came to witness this occasion. The president and the vice president families all in black attire, but her, who is supposedly the main namalila wearing chilundu, this is really shocking. What message is she trying to tell us.

    And all this fighting with her step children, what is it really about? Was she not given her share in the will that Bingu wrote? Does this not prove the point that other people were making during the wedding that Callista was in for the money into this marriage…………..

  22. Moya says:

    Looting from the loot, this is malawi. Its a matter of time the fight will unveil the dead secrets.

  23. mtumbuka1 says:

    The so called bingu was a thief and that’s the bottom line. The ndata house must be sold off and the proceeds must be given back to Malawians and not to the DPP government of peter mutharika

  24. Achakulungwa says:

    Can I please get a clarification; how long does a mourner dress in black after being bereaved. What does the black clothing signify? I am not disputing anything but all I want is to hear from those who are in the know.

    Bingu was not wise to marry at that old age; but I dont suppose he was also too stupid to not leave a will.
    . . . Whats the will saying? Coz truth seems to have been twisted somewhere hence all this tumult.

    . . . Bingu clearly erred by remarrying at that old age (after all, palibenso chomwe chimachitika iai), and a lesson or two; we can learn therefrom.
    . . . When you spend your entire life amassing wealth (howsoever you do it), and regrettably, your wife or husband happens to die; DO NOT REMARRY, particulary when you are well-advanced in age – ana anu or whoever is a dependent, muzaasiya pa moto.

    Even if you have a WILL in place, DONT!
    . . . A will is nothing but a piece of paper which can be torn or lost or deliberately twisted or just thrown away or whatever. Just live to cherish the life you had with the departed wife or husband.

    Get back that wealth into government coffers. It was obviously stolen from the poor Malawian in the 8 years Bingu was in power. There will be no peace between the warring parties as long as Malawians are suffering as a result of that loot. God is great!
