First Lady must refund Aids money – Chakwera

Leader of opposition in Parliament Lazarus Chakwera has  asked First Lady Gertrude Mutharika  to return K5 million to people with HIV and Aids in this country, irregularly taken out of National Aids Commission (NAC)by her organisation Beautify Malawi (Beam) Trust.

First Lady bombarded ministries to demand for money

First Lady : Bring back Aids money

Chakwera,  who is also Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president,  told a news conference in Lilongwe on Monday that President Peter Mutharika should also aorder his tribesmen at Mulakho wa Alhomwe to likewise pay back K9.4 million was siphoned under duress out of NAC.

“They should refund the money and we should move on,” Chakwera said, echoing the demands of civio society organisations.

But the First Lady has challenged that money will not be returned.

BEAM’s board member Mavuto Bamusi delivered the most embittered attack on the CSOs bluntly stating that the President’s spouse would not pay back the money.

“As far as BEAM is concerned, no money will be returned to NAC,” said Bamusi.

Minister of Information, Kondwani Nankhumwa, has stressed that government cannot refund money which was taken by independent bodies such as Mulhakho Wa Alhomwe and Beautify Malawi Trust (Beam).

Mwendewo kumuwuza Gertrude kuti bola wangawu, sizakozo. Strictly for walking


Bwana Chakwera,
in politics you don’t point your anger or frustration at a tribal grouping other wise you are just digging your own grave and that of your own party. if MCP was wise enough to detect this big blunder their master has done then they should remove him from the top position as quickly as possible. You mean you can boldly say Milhakho stole money from NAC? My foot! What a blunder! Your own words will follow you in May 2019!


I agree with Mr Chakwera. The First Lady must refund the money with insteret


This woman will not return the money. Period. And Mutharika will listen to her no matter what because in their marriage contract they agreed she will get what she wants as long as she keeps quiet. Peter looked around parliament, saw a sickly woman and knew she was perfect for a sham marriage. A perfect excuse not to sleep with her and continue with his boyfriends.


If you can hear what the dead people say and feel what the dead people thinks and want. You wouldent have done that.


Shame! Shame on the second lady


Thyafuyo imati itani


Sit back and enjoy the show.
