Chikadya is said to have been annoyed with a an industrial dispute summons served on Times Group  for unfair dismissal by the ailing journalist through his lawyer Lusungu Gondwe.

Times Group editors and other employees were conspicuously missing at the tournament including the prize presentation ceremony, which was graced by vice president Saulosi Chilima.

Chikadya ordered his charges not to participate and cover any the fundraising activities, including the  teeing-off of a charity golf by the country’s vice president.

Inside sources claimed that Chikadya had committed to foot travel and accommodation expenses for its fired former Malawi News editor.

The charity golf tournament has raised K7.2milllion and there is a K3 million shortfall.

Companies, institutions and individuals that have supported the cause include Hotel victoria, Macra, Escom, National Bank of Malawi, FMB, FDH Bank, FD Communications,  Escom’s PR Manager Kitty Chinseu-Chingota,  Nyasa Times editorial director Thom Chiumia, Times Group managing editor Brian Ligomeka, Noel Lipipa, Lab Enterprises, Furkani Gani, journalists Jolly Ntaba and  Idris Ali Nansah, among others.

BP&P journalists should hold their heads in shame. A whole vice president teeing off at a charity golf is a big news item in terms of prominence. Are you not embarrassed that your competition The Nation Leading Print House) professionally covered the events? Credibility matters. Just because one man has personal grudges against an ex-employee over a simple law suit and nonse kupanila michila a kha kha kha inu? Koma kuthamangira kukalemba Umthini kwao kwa Chikadya. The world is indeed full of IDIOTS.

Your anger is misdirected. I doubt if you would have behaved differently if you were in their shoes. These guys are employees, and Chikadya does not play, he enjoys firing those not towing his line. Would you provide for there needs if they were fired?
