Malawi First Lady admits getting Aids money for her charity launch

Malawi’s First Lady Gertrude Mutharika has admitted that her Beautify Malawi Trust (Beam) got K5 million from the country National Aids Commission (Nac) but she was quick to deny that her charity bulldozed its way to get the money.

Gertrude Mutharika: Malawi First Lady: Confessed the money was collected from NAC

Gertrude Mutharika: Malawi First Lady: Confessed the money was collected from NAC

NAC is a government institution that is mandated to fight HIV and Aids and is funded by the Global Fund on the Fight Against HIV and Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria while Beam was set up to champion cleanlisness and sanitation in the country.

In an interview, Mutharika insisted that there was nothing sinister in how the funds were obtained.

Mrs Mutharika comments come after reports allege that Beam and Mulhakho wa Alhomwe, a tribal grouping that President Arthur Peter Mutharika belongs and is its patron as well as the country’s National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) drew a total of K57.4 million from Nac.

“It was a standard letter which went out to a number of organisations and institutions including Nac, to help with the launch of Beam. We did not force anyone to give out any money. The organisations gave out the money out of their free will,” said Mrs Mutharika.

According to the First Lady she did not use state machinery as others are alleging explaining that not every organisation that was approached to assist managed to do so.

Her explanation comes after some civil society organisation has put pressure on Beam and the two institutions to give back the money which they are saying was given to wrong institutions that have nothing to with the fight against HIV and Aids.

In a joint statement released last week, Malawi network of People Living with HIV and Aids, Malawi Health Equity Network (Mhen), Centre for Development of people (Cedep) and Centre for Human Rights Rehabilitation described the development as a pure sign of misappropriation of funds.

Reports have indicated that Mulhakho wa Alhomwe drew K9.4 million, National Intelligence Bureau drew K43 million while Beam drew the K5 million.

And State House drew K12 million from NAC to fund cash handouts for journalists who were invited to what was supposed to be an interface with the President but later turned out to be a dinner- dance and cash handout event.

    What is the NIB receiving money that is meant for HIV aids for? Failed state

    Why did u Get rude and ur beam write to NAC knowing pretty well that it wasn’t in line with what NAC funds?. You didn’t force them yes but who says no to the presidents request in Malawi? Kuti muwapeze zifukwa akukana. Iwe ndi amuna ako nonse mbuzi mubweze

    So Hudson Mphande, in your wisdom you think Tuberculosis has nothing to do with cleanliness and sanitation? Or you are just one of those possessed with criticising Mlakho. Before your grand grand fathers migrated from kwaZulu Natal, the Lhomwes were here and they are going to where. Get lost

    You mean K69,400,000.00 from NAC has been spent on these unrelated issues. Mr President are you serious with your duty as head of State? Please find means to repay back to NAC before things go out of hand. This is real theft. Missusing resources meant for sick people otherwise God will heavly punish you soon.

    zina lets comment. I think when begging for funds know these things: you are in a position of influence coz of that every Jim and Jack would HAVE to assist you to secure their jobs/contracts or directorships. So for them to say no to you ndipovuta koma opemphanu dziwani and choose kopempha wisely, there are so many privately owned organisations that have completely nothing to do with donor regulated funds pemphani kumeneko.

    Now the question is when Global Funds demands that NAC refunds this money zidzachoka kuti? taxpayers money? ndiye kuti tapanga chani? OR suppose they decide not to fund NAC at all ndiye kuti all HIV positive people in this country mwawapha sichoncho? Lets have a human heart tikamapanga zinthu already hospitals are lacking so many essential items nanga a HIV mukawaphanso ndiye kuti zipatala zikhala bwanji? DO not use your position of influence kusuzumira ku ma account ndikumapempha mutaziona kale – God help this country, redeem it from the hardships the common man has and contrinue to suffer… God you are our only help, atsogoleri have let us down.

  25. Anthu Wakuda says:

    Your Excellency stealing from NAC! Well what is safe in Malawi. Cannot put it past you that you are the one organising the robberies we see taking place everyday. You are an unmitigated disaster leading Malawi into darkness and death. Sooner you go the better. And oh yes take your thieving wife with you when you leave.

  26. Katengeza says:

    APM you have now compromised NAC. The donors will impose strict conditions for funding NAC from now on. Do you have any remorse for your stupidity and greed? Or do you as people near you say remain under the influence of alcohol most of the time to realise that you have lost it. Your government cannot last. In 6 months or less you will be out of office as the economy is getting worse by the day. You cannot manage to run the country on handouts from corrupt Indians like Faisal Mpheto or Shiraj Karim or Master or Kassem. They may pay you enough to bribe traditional chiefs and the opposition members of parliament but you cannot pay police, army, civil servants etc with what the Indiand bribe you with. Do me a favour look at your face in the mirror today, and what you see in the mirror is a face of a corrupt incompetent failure.

  27. manthu blantyre says:

    kumeneko ndiye kutikanda ponyerera , ukutanthauza kuti a NAC anangokupasa ndalamazo? utiuze amene anapanga authorise ndalamazo ku NAC uko, otherwoze mulungu akulangani he will send mr cardiac arrest to deal with u.

  28. Hebrews says:

    We Malawians are very stupid! If you report to the donors about this who is going to suffer? The President and his wife are at the State House with the full budget un affected. But you and me are the ones suffering! Now every time there is an issue with any Mutharika administration, you rush to the donors who do you think you are penalizing? Shall minds. You have stolen millions and built mansions not equal to your income who reported you to the bosses. Fools

  29. Kamanga Msiska says:

    Ine ndifunseko!!! Is it the same family and party that learned the good lesson about what stupid imprudent leadership brings in 2012 when their brother and leader died doing this? Having returned into the State House through suspectedly dubious ways this time, it is time you mended your names and actions for sure. Remember never take Malawians, and above all God, for granted. Things change unexpectedly in a matter of seconds. Please it is high time you put the good lessons you learned that day in April 2012 in action. Go and repay the money. All the people who are complaining here are simply showing how deeply hurt they have endured by what you have done.

  39. The Truthful One from the West says:

    The First Lady’s explanation that NAC was not forced to make a donation is simply a blue lie. NAC is a Govt organisation whose ultimate authority is the state president your husband. NAC took it for granted that your letter to them had a blessing from your husband and NAC positively responded. I join CSOs in calling on you to refund the money. It is a shame what you did.

  40. Angozo says:

    I think Chalonimazgola is somehow stupid, how can send that response to the donors, what is your motive behind that? If GF and other donors stop funding NAC, who will be in trouble? Is the first lady or innocent Malawians, you to think like a human being not like a monkey as you have done. Remember we are like people in one boat if it sinks we will all sink, lets just fight this enternaly and pressuries her to pay back the money.

  41. Stupidity says:

    Okay, I’m done I can’t take it anymore. I have denounced my citizenship, I got get out of here, I’m done, this is sooooo embarrassing . Getrude accepted money that was meant for AIDS orphans and used it for her stupid foundation really? I’m through, this is sickening to the core.

  42. Bribes says:

    Getrude please! You make me sick. You just insulted my intelligence.

  43. thom tsegula says:

    Shame

  44. Kamps says:

    you cso are very absurd,NAC also gave NAC vehicles to agriculture,education ,judiciary.you can ask NAC to have these vehicles back coz these departments dont deal with AIDS/HIV

    1. Kenkkk says:

      It is all misuse of funds but more so serious if people like the first lady and the president get involved in the plundering of vulnerable peoples money for very selfish ends. We actually don’t know how all the nac money dished out over the years has been used by these recipient individuals or organisations or even govt departments or ministries, more likely as we know now that it ended up in peoples pockets rather than what their bogus proposals said. It is like Nac has now become the ministry of finance, controlling the budget of the country and everyone is going to beg or get their allocated share from it.

      At the moment we just have to deal with the people who have been caught and revealed, the past will have its own investigation. Just like JB cashgate and the 92bn!!!,

      This is a big lesson for all ngos dealing in corruption and misusing donor money. A big lesson to the govt too that you can’t be raiding ngos money to rescue your stupid economic and budgetary blunders arising from your misuse and thieving of govt money!!

  45. Humphreys Makande says:

    This is the most useless first lady in the world.Looking like a ghost kumvetsa ,manyazi.the way she looks is exactly the way she thinks.Nkhalamba zimenezi sizitisunga

  46. Salvador says:

    What the fuck is she talking about sending a standard letter to many organisations. NAC is not a profit making organisation to engage in CSR or have extra funds to donate to other institutions. We Malawians are so weak and selfish we cant stand up against evil for the common good. I am the first to blame for my failure to do so, but I believe there are people who are getting hefty perks to lead us into peaceful protests but I wonder what is keeping them busy now when the president gets money for people who are suffering and uses it, publicly, to line scribes’ pockets. Big shame on me, and my you my fellow ordinary Malawians. Lucius suggested ‘Soldier Take Over’, I dont know if he still feels the same way, but I do. We need radical change and we wont get it on a silver platter. Soldier take over!!!

    1. Kenkkk says:

      I agree with you 100%. The most stupid and idiot people in Malawi are our MPs and the opposition. This should have been a field day in any other developed country, actually even leading to impeachment of the leader. Look at our elected members or representatives, very docile and quiet, like sheep being laid to the slaughter house!!! You are letting the DPP govt walk scot free, is it because you are all doing the same thing?

      MCP please don’t embarrass us, this is the time to speak out and the common man and woman in Malawi will take notice of you and what you are saying!!! Individual MPs do the same. You don’t need to wait for Parliament to open, you should always react to and speak out on any thing at any time that is of great importance to Malawians!!!

      God forbid we Malawians!!

  47. Maseko says:

    You mean all those “advisors” you surrounded yourself and Mathanyula none of them has good sense to advise against making such a fool of yourself? What do you pay them for? They sit on their butts and watch you and Mathanyula make one blunder after another?

  48. Shame says:

    OMG! As a Malawian working for an International organization which provides funding for NAC this is so embarrassing, I really don’t know how I’m going to face my co- workers in the morning. Unfortunately for Malawi this stupid response has been posted on the organization’s website, we have had interesting responses from recipient countries but this one by Gertrude Maseko tops the cake.

  49. Nankungwi says:

    While I can understand Beam which is involved in clearing waste to avoid such diseases as malaria and TB, what has journalists got to do with this? what has intelligence got to do with this?

    It is obvious that misappropriation has started and we as Malwians want this to STOP NOPW No more confusion and no more mismanagament. We want money to be spent on what it is meant to be spent on. Malwaians are tried of being victims in their own country! enough si enouigh and we ant this corrected!

    Our hope was with the mutyharika Gvt that it will be an example of how a Gvt is run without corruption and you have only been in power for 6 months you MUST not allow this kind of chaos to set in again!

    DONOIRS STAY AWAY UNTIL MALAWI GETS ITS ACT TOGETHER!

  50. Alungwana says:

    Ok? Kuyankha kumeneko?

  51. Chalonimazgola says:

    This is the most pathetic reasoning I have ever heard coming from a First Lady. I have sent her response to The Clinton Global Fund and all Organizations/donors that fund NAC. You will have a lot of explanation to do. I can tell you right now that stupid response will not fly. This is an embarrassment for sure!!! What happened to the team of advisors that your Mathanyula husband hired??? They couldn’t come up with a better response???? Koma mabvuto alipo!!

    1. DRAKE says:

      You think you have done a good thing, unfortunately its your brother and sister who will die
      in Karonga, some of these things are supposed to be handled locally. You think your paymasters will reward you for that, too much under the yoke of whites

      1. Stupidity says:

        You dunderhead, so you would rather have your stupid President and his pathetic ugly looking wife enrich themselves with money that is meant to help the most vulnerable members of our society. You must realize that foreign aid comes from other people’s tax money, it’s not manner from heaven. I will do anything possible to expose this scandal.

      2. The Patriot says:

        Drake dont be stupid! Mayi akowa anaba ndalama and the money came from the West, no problem in reporting her! Reporting a corrupt transaction has nothing to do with being under a White yoke! Getrude wavomelatu kuti analandira ndalama inuyo mukuti nyo chiani??

        1. mathanyula says:

          Drake you are just as thick as Mathanyula and his ugly duckling. It is very reasonable to report them to GF because the money your stupid President and his ignorant wife took is made available by people paying taxes, so it is very appropriate to let the international community know exactly what goes on with their money. This is alot more than an internal matter Dude!

  52. Paulos Banda says:

    Awa ndiye chitsiru enanso awa.

  53. Chilungamo Chimawawa says:

    Bullshit this lady and presidential advisors like bright Malopa are pieces of shit. How can you approach NAC to fund activities or buy tables or what you call marketing. Is NAC now a marketing company? What i know NAC is not supposed to implement HIV/AIDS activities by itself rather recruit NGOs and clubs to do that through submission of proposals which take a process to materialise. This is a lie of highest order from First Lady! All you have in mind is that JB stole money and you have to steal again before its too late. This is bullshit madam. Stop nonses because the country will not smile at you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Again please stop abusing MBC (Mutharika Broadcasting Corporation.

    1. Stainford says:

      Such thngs must hpen we a in th last dys 2Tim 3

  54. vavlov says:

    This is donor funds being misused by the Lomwe mafia. This ghostly looking first lady should pay back the money. These so called foundations are there to siphon donor funds meant to help people with HIV/AIDs. Do you really think the president and his wife care about poor Malawians? They used funds from NAC to bribe journalists; fund their tribe’s feasts, etc. Whats wrong with Malawi, people are just watching these things happening while poor people are suffering due to lack of assistance.

  55. Kenkkk says:

    This is exactly what we feared and suspected all along. Beam didn’t even had a proposal, it just requested assistance from nac for Beam purposes. This is clearly day light thieving, why should you request money from nac knowing very well it is not for aids? Nac executive should resign immediately for misappropriating nac aids money to BEAM, NIB and MLHAKHO. Even with proposals the three are not aids specialising entities and their requests or proposals should have been thrown away on spot.

    They were deliberately asking for money when their organisations have absolutely nothing to do with Aids and nac stupidly, foolishly gave them!!!

    I commend you first lady for your honesty and that alone has cooled me down a bit but my anger is now directed to NAC.

  56. Billy Wayatsa says:

    We knew that Getrude Mutharika had formed her Trust to act as a pipe for stealing money.

  62. zizwani says:

    My question to NAC, NIB and your BEAM is ‘how good and appealing was your proposals to NAC to warrants such a speedy approval for release of funds from NAC if there was no political influence?’ I hear proposals from legitimate smaller organisation do gather dust at NAC and end up being rejected. The idea behind Beam was quiet motivating and good and I guess many people were interested in the course and interested to support just like me. But now this simple scandal has put your organisation in disrepute any future activities by it will not have support from the masses.

  68. Andy moses says:

    Madam awa kukala ngati aku challenger just pay back.

  69. Alfred Munduwabo says:

    Why was the funding of these three organisetion accepted within the four months DPP has been in power ? There is an influence which was used by DPP INNER CIRCULAR OF MLAKHO. Many of us running NGOs we started applying for this fund long time ago , we are talking more than a year ago , our proposers have always been rejected by NAC.

    When you go to all State Houses you will not believe the personal expensive cars which are being driven by State House staff . People are driving very descent and expensive cars bought within the 6 months DPP has been in power. There is a lot of easy money at State House than any other government Departiment . How can state house junior officers be driving personal cars which are costing over MK50,000.00 ? The president is seeing all these things happening within his yard. The big share goes to the head of the government.

  70. Malawian says:

    “It was a standard letter which went out to a number of organisations and institutions including Nac, to help with the launch of Beam. We did not force anyone to give out any money. The organisations gave out the money out of their free will,” said Mrs Mutharika……….”

    Madam, your statement above is not correct. If it was a private company that received the letter and donated, ya! may be I would give you a benefit of doubt. Your letter to all statutory corporations, financed by public funds, whose management is appointed and fired at your husband’s prerogative is already a threat and a forceful demand to respond to. This is abuse of public resources that should have helped suffering Malawians. NAC runs a risk of Donors demanding a refund for the cut you made as unallowable expenditure.

  71. John says:

    SRIOUSLY SPEAKING, I DID NOT EXPECT DPP TO START FORCING STATE INSTITUTIONS TO DONATE MONEY TO MULHAKO OR INDEED NIB OR BEAM. PETER MUST DEMONSTRATE SERIOUSNESS IN THE MANNER HE GOVERNS THIS COUNTRY. IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE TO SAY THAT NAC WAS APPROACHED JUST LIKE ANY ORGANIZATION. NAC IS NOT A DONOR. KEEP AWAY FROM NAC, MACRA OR INDEED OTHER PARASTATTALS OR ELSE MUYALUKA PA MALAWI PANO. WITH THE CASH GATE STILL HANGING ON OUR HEADS, PEOPLE WILL NOT SIT PHWIII AND WATCH YOU GUYS MISUSING THEIR MONEY IN THE NAME OF MULHAKO, NIB OR BEAM. TAKE CARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  72. Onasiwelo says:

    Well well once mbava always mbava, they say when you lie you probably need ten more lies to cover up, the problem are the people who voted these thieves in power, they stole 92 billion when they were in power and this tym mwanamvekha and others want nothing less of 200 billion poor malawi we shall fund it. The best was to demonstrate and force them out of office. I wonder howmuch they will steal by the time we reach 2019. Cry my beloved country. DPP woyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Misappropriation of Funds is the intentional,illegal use of funds of another person or organisation for one own use different to the. Original intended use..it is a criminal act and deserve punishment and the fact our ‘Madame’ has confessed to the crime makes her a criminal and deserves to face justice….its going to be interesting to see how the President and his cohorts are going to deal with this..and how our law enforcers deal with it

  80. Gongoni says:

  84. Kutambudzika says:

    BUT MAGALASI SAID THEY ONLY BOUGHT SEATS FOR DIRECTORS AND MANAGEMENT. NOW THE FIRST LADY SAYS THEY WROTE A LETTER ASKING FOR FUNDING?? DOES THE QUESTION THEN NOT ANSWER ITSELF? BEING THAT BEAM ASKED FOR DONATION FOR THE LAUNCH AND NAC IN ITS WISDOM SAID WE WILL NOT DONATE DIRECTLY BUT TO BY PASS THE RULES WE WILL JUST BUY A TABLE AND PAY TWO MILLION KWACHA FOR DISPLAYS.WHEN YOU TELL ONE LIE YOU HAVE T COVER UP BY TELLING ANOTHER LIE.. THE STORY OF MAGALASI IS NOT THE SAME AS THAT OF THE FIRST LADY. I FEEL THE FIRST LADY IS BEING HONEST SHE HAD NO INTENTION TO COMMIT FRAUD BUT THE MAGALASIs AND NAC MANAGEMENT CAME UP WITH THE PLOT TO FULLTHE NATION. JUST RETURN THE MONEY MAMA ANTHUWA AKUPUSITSANI JUST LIKE THEY HAVE DONE WITH THE BWANA

  85. Lwitiko says:

    Madam, first lady please you know just like I do that they did not give your organization the money on free will

  86. Sidix says:

    This is t he reason the Centre and North needs federalism. In federal state stupidity of this nature cannot be done.Proffessor APM and his wife are Proffessional thieves. This is thefty of greatest magnitude.

  87. patricia says:

    It would be naïve for anyone to believe that hand picked directors of NAC would turn down any request coming from the president’s wife. It is in fact the reason why the president appointed one of his hand clappers to lead the NAC. Our responsibility as citizens in this country is to continue to notify and lobby the institutions that have been pouring their support into NAC. Moving forward lets continue to write these institutions like Global Fund, and any other that have been supporting us. Considering the president does not have a priority to alleviate the worsening economic situation in this country rather than filling his pockets we have to take it upon ourselves to stop the bilking of state resources for personal use. Mulakho is a tribal and personal organization established by the Munthalikas. It is wrong therefore to expect government resources to fund it. We demand and immediate audit of NAC as some us believe that this practice by APM and probably those before him has been systematic. We will continue to raise our concerns with all the funding institutions. We also demand that Mulakho and BEAM refund the money to NAC. After all Mulakho is a APM organization established by his brother. Why not use all the MKBillions stashed in foreign bank accounts by Bingu whose beneficiary is APM. How much more does Munthalika expect to swindle Malawians out of what ever crumbs there is left?

    THERE MORE THINGS CHANGE, THE MORE THEY REMAIN THE SAME!

  93. Jabulosi says:

    According to your Kubalasa NAC booked a Table during launch for MK3 Million!!!!? My foot!!!!! According to your advert on radio and TV a table for ten (10) was going at MK300,000. How Foolish is NAC to book a table for MK3 million????? or is that NAC sent 100 people to the launch???? Again how stupid is NAC management and Board????? Kubalasa went on to state that NAC paid MK2 million for advertising. Advertising for What??? This money should be used to Buy ARVs!! Period. Please madam RETURN THIS MONEY, it should be used for ARVs!!

    BEAM didnot force NAC’ the funds were dully realeased by NAC upon scrutinising the request from BEAM! Its normal!

    1. Njolopingo says:

  97. Ngati izi zikuchitika pa miyezi 6 zidzakhala bwanji akamadzamaliza zaka 5? Izitu zikuchitika pomwe madonazi asiya kuthandiza nanga zidzakhala bwanji Madonaziwo akadzayambaso kuthandiza? Kaya tidzazindikira patsogolo.

  98. jolly says:

    Stupid woman! You solicited and received money that was to be used for nothing other than HIV/AIDS purposes and your conscious was clear? You have embarrassed us as a Nation.

  99. trouble says:

    President stop stealing plus the first lady is now a thief

  100. Utsiru sachitakugula says:

    How far did this lady go with school? the fact that you are first lady and you extend a hand of begging to organizations, that is taken as government machinery old lady. You are aware of what NAC funds are for , WHY send then a request for funds? Inu mumati azitenga pati zoti akupatseni ngat zisali zothandizira anthu a HIV/AIDS. Were you expecting staff to donate and give your charity organization? What king of thinking is this if not NAC-GATE?

  101. Mahala says:

    This is another Nac gate. Law enforcement firms should investigate and prosecute those responsible.

  102. sibo ndi dingase says:

  103. mona says:

    Mayi bwezani ndalamayo tatopa nanu. And your husband should resign immediately situ mufuna gonthi ameneyu

  104. tonde says:

    Mr. President, you should be very prudent with your financial issues. Malawian are tired of being deceived and have tentacles to sniff whatever shoddy business you can do.
    You were voted in to serve and not to be worshipped and chew public resources and make sure that resources are channeled to the right streams for the benefit of the suffering communities.
    By living your teaching career, it should not mean that you will be sucking the Govt as your brother already did. I believe what you found or the deceased estates of Ur late brother is enough to take you the rest of Ur life.

  105. CHAKUDA says:

    Kaperekeni nsanga!! Tiyaluka!! Ndalama zache si za GF zopangira zibwana!

  106. sidington mhone says:

    Restore your dignity Madam Chair. Just refund the money voluntarily.

  107. moto mwikho says:

    This is a trick by NAC to cover up its huge internal corruption scandal. Each organisation has guidelines on donations and legitimate use of resources. NAC caanot produce evidence that it was coerced. It saw a great opportunity for pulling others down the drain. NAC is corrupt to the core!

  108. Br Mfumu says:

    Mwaonjeza madam president ndiye mukutipatsa chitsanzo chotani? kuti tizisolola tikamagwira ntchito? zikungowonetsa kuti mwautengera udindo wanu pa mgong’o mungotula pansi basi

  109. Malawians are very stupid pipo.

  110. Ghost of Kamuzu says:

    MEMO TO THE PRESIDENT
    Mr President surely this woman is not befitting the high office of First Lady. Beautify Malawi, my foot! Let her start by beautifying herself!
    And you Sir as Chief Executive of the nation should have been the first one to put a stop to the looting NAC by this woman and your tribal organisation but instead you too resorted to looting NAC to bribe journalists. You are too drunk most of the time and have no understanding of how this looting convinces the donors that withholding of budget support by donors is justified. Shame on you Peter. Best you hand over power to the VP or MCP.Out with you, corrupt Mutharikas!

  111. mona says:

    Mayi bwazani ndalamayo tatopa nanu and it appears you are HIV positive ndikunam a madam

  115. pierra says:

    All monies should be returned. NAC should be castigated for not using the monies to sustain its campaign against the causes it was founded upon. This is total mismanagement and fraud.

  116. Israel Difense Force says:

  118. Bantu says:

    This NAC thing is being abused way too much. Mrs Mutharika should be at the forefront spurring the objectives of NAC, not milking it. Chitani chilungamo mayi, kabwezeni ndalamazo.

  122. CHANGU PA MALO says:

    Ngati ndalamazo munalandiladi kangobwezani chifukwa aliyense akudziwa ntchito yake

  123. George says:

    There is no way the First Lady can say nothing sinister on how she obtained the funds. for your information Your BEAM trust is few months old and got funded. There are institutions in the northern Malawi who applied for funding and they got the approval in February, 2014 but still waiting. These are the same institution that has helped to register reduced HIV prevalence rate in Malawi but here they are today being denied the chance to continue doing the good work in striving for the three zeros. NAC board, you suspended Bisika, who is going to suspend you for this mess? I can now feel that Bisika never committed any crime.

  124. PEFECO says:

    Choncho Cashgate siingathe madonor nao sangathandizenso, koma chaka singathe.

  125. MWENENYOKA says:

    The Person responsible at NAC who paid out the money be dismissed as soon as possible. NAC should wake up by using the properly and in the right way.

  126. Madam, lets be honest, there was political influence at play here though you claim that no one was forced. Imagine, if you were not the first lady, would your organization get funding from NAC as simple as you did? Remember, you were once a God fearing lady, and don’t late your current position take away this everlasting gift.

    1. unfortunate says:

      Very perfect comment, writing with a knowledge of respect, I like your comment.

  127. Mwenecho says:

    aaaaaaah! Zolakwika bwezani uhere is more to this

  132. AK 47 says:

    But why include NAC on list of organizations to seek assistance when it’s common knowledge that NAC runs on donor funding? Then we are saying that was wrong and what you should have been saying is that you are refunding the money oasti kumatiuza kuti they were not forced to pay. All parastatals who paid must have done so in a bid for management to keep their jobs. Bwezani ndalamazo it’s not too late.
