Jappie: DPP to help the poor in the north

Minister of Information Jappie Mhango disclosed this on Thursday in Mzimba when he handed over 200 bags of maize and 10 bags of beans to Mzimba District Hospital.

Mhango said the donation was as a result of President Peter Mutharika’s call to help the needy and less priviledged.

Leonard Sanga, DPP regional governor for the north said it was sad that members of parliament in the region were not forthcoming to help the dire situation in hospitals.

He said the dire situation in public hospitals needed the help of everyone including law makers who represent people.

District Hospital Officer Alinafe Mbewe welcomed the donation describing it as timely.

He said hospital administrators would now concetrate on other similar pressing issues other than food.

Sam @ #1. elaborate your point this way:
a father carelessly misuses all the household money. Then goes behind the family to get some leftover monies he stole from the family purse. He decides to buy a paid of shoes for a child who could create “trouble” for him. Then he goes all over the neighbourhood cleansing his evil deeds by displaying the shoes he has bought for the “difficult ” child.
