First Lady at Zomba State Lodge on Saturday at luncheon

The first lady said this at Zomba State Lodge on Saturday when Beautify Malawi (BEAM) hosted a fundraising luncheon for the promotion of the Trust’s activities in Zomba and other eastern region districts.

“I have fond memories of Zomba as I spent four years of my secondary school at St Marys and that time it looked greener and Zomba used to be so beautiful. However, things have changed now.

“If you walk around the district nowadays you will see so many people coming down the mountains carrying charcoal and firewood, and when I see this I ask myself if we will have trees in time to come,” wondered Mutharika.

She therefore called upon people living in Zomba and surrounding areas to take the responsibility of planting trees, flowers to restore the lost glory of the district.

She then said BEAM Trust cherishes the banner My Clean Community My Responsibility My Pride as it believes that there is the possibility that Malawi can recreate a cleaner and healthier environment for its citizens.

On the money that was raised during the luncheon Mutharika assured the patrons that the proceeds would be used transparently for the Trust’s activities in Zomba and the eastern region districts.

Zomba Mayor, Christopher Jana said Zomba in its days as the capital city of Malawi used to be green, beautiful and clean.

He said it was therefore the wish of Zomba City to have the old capital restored to its past glory through concerted efforts.

He therefore expressed gratitude to BEAM Trust for its commitment to help restore Zomba’s past glory.

Apart from restoring the environment, BEAM has been offering scholarships to needy children, constructing girls hostels, and providind refuse collection vehicles in cities

Just ask your husband to give you some of the MK145m and make Zomba greener

This is like own goal. You have a husband who is running the country and you sleep next to him very evening. Zomba has deteriorated under his watch and also other cities and towns. It is a shame that you’re raising money for BEAM when your husband has looted millions of dollars that you don’t even know what to do with it. Why take more from the poor madam. Use what you have looted to develop Zomba and uplift people.

WHO COMMITTED THE FIRST SIN. I wanted to ask my fellow Malawians who loves Malawi n the coming generation about what i hear about Quota system. Most people though a few n number are demanding that the system be abolished cause its favoring one tribe not region.

We don’t want such type of writing like a standard 6 drop out. Write in chichewa.

Don’t insult the std 6s. I did my std 6 in 1966 and stopped school. I write and speak good English. This one is just dull.

@kanchenga; Just dated yourself right there. And I should also say, your writing, for sure, does reflect a primary school drop out. Perhaps you too should consider writing in your vernacular.
Leave Benni Hope alone.

Benni Hope, don’t comment on things you don’t understand. Malawi is one and we need it to be like that forever. We went to university from the southern region when there was no QUOTA system and the same will apply to those who are hardworking. Let’s just encourage our children they will make it to public universities. All developed countries do not practice what we do in Malawi. Quota is divisive if you do not know. On the other hand Madam First Lady is as dull as his husband. How can you expect people stop using firewood when there is… Read more »

To Dipipi ya Udiefu, writing above. I don’t think there’s mention of Mary Mount Secondary School in the report. It’s St. Mary’s Secondary School.
