The children were drawn from religious groupings, district councils and constituencies of the two districts of Mangochi and Machinga.

The First Lady wished the children a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year on behalf of President Peter Mutharika and on her own behalf, saying the first couple always regarded children as dear hence, the party.

“Your Dad the President loves you very much because you, children, are honest,” said the First Lady, urging them to continue being respectful of their parents and elders.

She also urged the children to make sure that they take care of the environment by keeping the surrounding litter free.

Madam Mutharika also taught the children good morals through a common folklore Kachitsa-kachitsa in which a rude little girl, Mary, got punished for swearing at a stump of tree after she had tripped on it.

“What we were learning from this folklore is that it is not good to be rude: so as children you should always be polite to everyone,” she said.

The Christmas party was marked with various performances by the children and a lot of fun with play-aids such as jumping castles, see-saws and many more.

The children also had the chance of dancing with the First Lady bssides being treated to food and drinks.

The First Lady also spoiled each of the 2,500 children with a Christmas gift.

The worst First Lady Malawi has ever had. She may be last of this caliber. She is so excited with stolen money and she wishes she was 21 years old. Look at the attire she put during entertainers award. Shame on you Gertrude whatever they call you, I do not care.

Good gesture but are you and your husband Peter a good example of an honert couple? You steal our tax money at will & use it for personal things yet you get so much but still not satisfied. On the respect of elders, do you two respect them? Zija amayankhula Peter pamsonkhano, anawo amamvatu. Please ,practise what you preach not just lip service! Osamawanamiza ana pomwe inu ulemu mulibe!
