Malawi VP Chilima accepts Ice Bucket Challenge after nomination

Malawi Vice President Saulos Chilima has agreed to be soaked for charity.

Having begun in America, the Ice Bucket Challenge has since become a internet sensation with celebrities from across the world soaking themselves with ice cold buckets of water to raise money for the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Association.

The social media craze is aimed at awareness and raising money for charity.

Chilima was also nominated to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge by Nedbank boss Paul Guta who was also doused in cold water.

Confirming the Vice President’s acceptance, his press officer Pilirani Phiri said Chilima will do it because it is for a good cause.

“The VP is into it because the raised funds will go towards charity. In fact of late philanthropists like Bill Gates have done it to promote charity. So the VP will do it and the money raised probably we will send it to an orphanage we will identify,” said Phiri in a statement.

He did not indicate when the VP will be soaked.

Guta, who also nominated Welford Sabola of Wamkulu Palace and Iqbar Muhammad of Ninkawa Transport among others, said he was humbled that the Vice President accepted his nomination.

“It shows the Vice President understands the importance of this initiative of allowing to be poured ice water to help raise funds for the underprivileged,” said Guta.

Of late high profile people including billionaire Bill Gates and Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho have undergone the challenge in support of charity.

Everyone is queuing up to douse themselves in freezing liquid in front of the cameras.

    Nominate Gertrude Mutharika and JB, and see which one will freeze to death after the deed.
