I  wanted to receive Bushiri money, says Malawi sport minister

Minister of Sports and Culture Grace Chiumia has vehemently rejected calls to resign following her decision to order the Football Association of Malawi (FAM)  to reject a K44 million donation from billionaire prophet, Shepherd Bushiri.

“What I wanted is to ensure that government procedures are followed. Bushiri cannot just call today and say he wanted to donate the money. There are procedures we follow. I wanted to be there with my ministry officials to receive the money,” said Chiumia.

She said the government has nothing personal with the prophet.

“God should forgive those who are saying things out of ignorance,” she said.

Chiumia said demanding procedures when making a donation does not warrant resignation.

FAM president Walter Nyamilandu refused to obey Chiumia’s order, arguing it was the association that contacted the prophet after the government said it had no money for the Malawi vs Guinea Afcon qualifiers in Guinea last week.

She wanted to be there with her ministry officials to generate their own subsistence allowances for travelling to Blantyre and not necessarily to receive the money from Bushiri. Sick minds!
