VP Chilima: Unity, respect and hard work is needed

Chilima made the remarks Saturday at Horo in Phalombe at Traditional Authority (T/A) Kaduya during the annual celebrations of the life of the late Lacton Mulli, the founder of Mulli Borthers Limited (MBL).

The vice president cited the Mulli Brothers Family as a good example of a family that has thrived by following the principles of unity, respect and hard work.

He said in the past pupils at school used to be told to respect their parents and regard them as their second God and those who followed this principles flourished as is the case of the Mulli Brothers.

Moreover, quoting the Holy Bible in  2 Thessalonians 3vs 10, the Vice President said God stipulated that a lazy person should not be given any food, hence the success of the Mulli Brothers can only be attributed to hard work since they own one of the largest companies in the country.

He urged Malawians to emulate the works of the Mulli Brothers and desists from dividing the country adding that it is through hard work that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) won the 2014 Tripartite Elections and not through rigging as other people are claiming.

In his remarks at the ceremony Leston Mulli who is the General Manager of MBL and representative of the Mulli Brother’s family welcomed everyone to the event saying its aim was to celebrate the successes of the late Lacton Mulli who lived from 1944 to 2006.

He said their late father founded the company himself which currently has 17 subsidiaries and employs over 15,000 Malawians.

Mulli urged government to continue supporting the company by giving it contracts saying many Malawians are being assisted through MBL.

Also taking her part at the celebration ceremony, T/A Kaduya commended the Mulli Brothers for continuing the works that their late father started saying the company is assisting a lot of people in the country.

The ceremony which was led by church elders from the Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP) and Catholic Church included a number of choirs, traditional dances and a sumptuous lunch.

A number of cabinet ministers also graced the occasion including the former first lady Callista Mutharika.-Mana

Chondidabwitsa Ine nchakuti vaisi pulezidenti akukatani kumaliro a business man? Just politics as usual. President and vice president of Malawi should not be at kulonga ufumu and or kumaliro a businessman. They may as well be at a nurse’s funeral.. at least a nurse saves lives.

Initially it was hard work. Then his siblings missed the path and diployed greediness & nastiness strategy.
Nobody can deny the fact that Mulli was a hard worker. But these ones heaven knows.
