According to local newspaper’s estimate—based on an average of four categories of external travel allowances in government—Capital Hill may have spent over $940 000 (K564 million) on the trip on average.

For a trip outside Africa, daily allowance for the President is $500 (about K285 000), a Cabinet minister gets $400 (about K228 000), principal secretaries (PSs) get $300 (about K171 000) and any officer below the position of director and below gets $280 (about K159 600).

That amounts to an average of $370 (K222 000) per day per person; hence, arriving at the K564 million estimate for the 121 people over 21 days.

The key event of the UNGA — UN Summit for the Adoption of the Post 2015 Development Agenda — will be held on September 25-27. The General Debate of the 70th UNGA will be held between September 28 and October 6.

Bingu was right that Malawi is full of cry babies, most of them crying about anything like a chicken. Ask Abiti Cashgate she will tell you that she was travelling with the whole North, including kondowole. So what the fuss here?
