The hundreds of children who attended the State House Christmas party were drawn from different churches and organizations in Blantyre City.

Activities started in the morning with children singing songs, reciting poems and Biblical verses and some of the children enjoyed games in a giant inflatable kid playground at the State House.

Speaking in his question and answer to the children, Mutharika advised the children that education was the key to success if they were to achieve their dreams.

“Every job ranging from cook, driver, carpenter, president among other good jobs, requires education and you children have to emulate this if you are to succeed.

“Yes, we are having a Christmas party here but the true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus and this is the time to reflect on many things in our lives.

“As Children, you are supposed to love one another always and respect your parents in your day- to- day-life,”Mutharika said, adding that people needed to emulate the love of Jesus Christ who died on the cross.

The Malawi leader and the First Lady also took their time to dance with the children to different songs.

During the function, the First Couple presented several Christmas gifts to the children.

Mercy Nkhoma who spoke on behalf of her fellow children, commended the First Couple for hosting the Christmas party, saying it had motivated many children to work hard to become Malawi’s president one day.

Nkhoma said the Christmas party had also given children an opportunity to know and interact with the president and the First Lady of this country.

“We only see you our president on television screens and hear your voice through radios and this is a rare opportunity for us invited here,” she said.

In December last year, the First Couple also hosted a Children’s Christmas Party at the Kamuzu Palace, in Lilongwe.

As much much as this is a very welcome and kind gesture, its kind of hypocritical!! 1. Was it govt or personal money used for this bash? 2, What criteria was used to chose those kids that attended the bash? 3. What does this say about the priorities of this first (so called) couple? 4. We have no medicines in hospitals, even paracetamol, is it wise to spend money on something like this when you have people who have no hope of recovering suffering in hospitals? 5. Why dress as if you are receiving letters of credence when you are… Read more »
