Malawi’s veteran journalist Limbani Moya is in dire need of  a kidney transplant treatment in India.

Guta nominated to the challenge by Mike Apel and Gatto’s Nazir Osman, donated K150,000 to Friends of Limbani.

Vice-President Chilima has 24 hours to take up the ice bucket challenge together with other nominees, Old Mutual boss Chris Kapanga, Grant Mwenechanya of Real Insurance, Welford Sabola of Wamkulu Palace and Iqbal Muhamad of Ninkawa Transport.

The nominated people will forfeit in form of charitable financial donation if they fail to take up the challenge in 24 hours.

Last week Friends of Limbani fundraising golf tournament which attracted 27 golfers including Chilima raised a total of K7 million out of the required K10 million.

The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. It went viral on social media during July–August 2014.

Some individuals have opted to donate their money from the Ice Bucket Challenge to other Organisations. The challenge encourages nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same.

A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.

    Azungu use ice cold water because they live in cold freezing temperatures. Don’t use ice cold water in Malawi u can think of something else mabulutu inu

    the ice bucket challenge comes from a need of publicising ones acts of charity. give in silence so that your left hand should not know what your right hand is doing. not through ice buckets in front of cameras.


    For the credibility of my government. I urge you young man not to do it. Let us just give them a little contribution. People will take you as childish

    Wasting clean water when others can’t even access a drop of unpurified water! This is an insult to those who thirst for water or walk a distance just for a bucket of untreated water. Think twice before copying stuff from the west. Find other means of raising money please.

    The Ice Bucket Challenge is a satanic ritual. Saulosi watch out, you can be taken out mwaulere.

    So the Nedbank boss decided to brave the bucket instead of donating?

    1. Lende Lende says:

    @Zan, you are right, why do us Africans always cope the West and any other cultures yet we have some of our own beautiful games and cultures. We have beautiful games that we used to nominate each other to do a certain agreed task when we were young. We could do the same here with one of our own cultures and enjoy. Or otherwise just donate the money as you have rightly put it.
