Callista misses at Bingu memorial mass as President Mutharika attends

Former first lady Callista Mutharika, who has been in the news recently attacking the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Sunday was no show at  private memorial mass of the late president Bingu wa Mutharika at Chingadzi Catholic Parish in Thyolo .

At the memorial of Bingu

A representative of the family Arthur Peter Masamba said Callista, Bingu’s widow, was informed about the service for the departed leader who died of cardiac arrest in April 2012.

Callista is on record to have told private-owned Zodiak Broadcasting Corporation (ZBS) that she got a call from a family member that the memorial service —apparently the public one—was cancelled.

She said on Sunday she had  “anothther memorial service in Bunda.”

Speaking after the mass, the President called on Malawians  to stand united, saying doing so would benefit  the country.

While saying the country has had two presidents from the same family and Thyolo Distruct, referring to himself and Bingu, the Malawi leader said discipline and hard work is what has earned them success; hence the need for Malawians to follow suit.

President Mutharika donated K1 million to the Chingadzi Parish through  Father Damazio Ngoma.

Last year, Mutharika, his second in command Saulos Chilima, First Deputy Speaker Esther Mcheka Chilenje, Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda and former Speaker Henry Chimunthu Banda were among dignitaries who attended Bingu’s fifth memorial anniversary at Ndata.

Also in attendance were Bingu’s widow Callista, and the late president’s children and relatives.

Auntie Callista finds relief in lambasting whoever has crossed her path she has a short memory about her own political positions for instance it has never crossed her mind that cashgate was the brainchild of Dr Bingu today she is crying foul about the clique around APM sad indeed she is hiding behind the poverty levels of the rural Malawians with “mandasi” sales the best is to ask JB on the best way out to be in exile she pushed JB over the political cliff at no should she call on Malawians to be on the alert when Bingu was… Read more »

This is not about family squabbles but about politics. Ndale zavuta. Let’s see who blinks first and who starts kutukwana. Malawi has degenerated into politics of castigation. I bet my last Kwacha from now these political parties will focus on kunyozana okha okha to the detriment of poor people. None of the parties will focus on how they will change Malawi fortunes for the poor to benefit. Ya mako ya mako ikhala m’nkamwa!

They could have beaten her to death. The attack was genuine and she hit them hard. “Alamu anga akula. Alamu anga akalamba”.

She has done well not to attend because some DPP diehards would have administered jakison wa agalu on her.

Probably you don’t know how nasty and corrupt for money and power Callista was. She was paid money corruptly, took position in cabinet as first lady, lambasted poor people… etc. Callista is EVIL. By the way, she wanted to snatch Bingus wealth from his children and thought APM was going to marry her.
