Fresh appeal for funds to help ex-Malawi News editor undergo kidney transplant

Friends of Limbani, a task force that took trouble to raise funds for former Malawi News Editor Limbani Moyo, who was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2012, has made a fresh appeal to well-wishers for K1.25 million to finance an anti-injection injection bill for the journalist.

Moya: Help

Moya flew to India on October 23 for kidney transplant,  which was due last Friday, but had to undergo anti-injection injection process first, according to Anthony Kasunda, Chairperson of the Task Force.

But it has transpired that the hospital cannot do the procedure unless there is a commitment to pay $2500 (about K1.25 million) for the anti-injection injection which was not initially covered in the quotation the task forced worked on.

“Mr Moya was expected to undergo kidney transplant on Friday, November 21 2014, after satisfying all medical and legal requirements.

“Unfortunately, the procedure did not take place due to unavailability of the said money for the injection,” said Kasunda.

He described the development as sad and pathetic, urging Malawians to come together and assist the former Malawi News Editor.

“It will be very sad and painful if Mr Moya comes back from India without undergoing kidney transplant because we have failed to assist him with K1.25 million to cover for the injection bill,” appealed Kasunda.

The hospital, according to him, has given a grace period to Moya to raise the funds with which to meet the injection bill.

Those wishing to assist him can deposit their contributions to the following bank details at First Merchant Bank (FMB) Blantyre Branch; Account Number 5200740001; Account Name: Friends of Limbani or can always meet or contact Kasunda on 0999952457/0888852457 or[email protected].

The Task Force raised about K10 million from individuals and corporations for the ailing journalist, his spouse and sister travel to India for specialist treatment.

so did it make sense to donate the 50pins to another charity so u could get famous and then come begging the public to assist Limbani? poti ife sititchuka nawo. isaaa! let Raphael Tenthani lead the way and donate first. A Moya wo anatchuka ndithu by scandalising people thru that defunct friday tabloid, now he needs those very same people to bail him out?! Do unto others as you might want them to do unto you. that’s the way to go.

What is an anti-injection injection? Perhaps you meant to say anti-rejection injection? Now to my point. I have read 15 comments here and most seem to imply Mr Moyo. is not deserving of their help because he is arrogant. As Jesus would have said, let the one who is without fault cast the first stone. My grandfather would have said chaona mzako chapita maws Chiri pa iwe!

Even if I had money, I would not donate to this Limbani Moya Fund . This guy was so arrogant and cruel . He destroyed so many people’s lives by publishing lies in his Friday scandal newspaper . Some of the stories were true but the majority were fabrications published without any regard to the reputations of the people he was defaming . As a Christian I’m supposed to take pity on this man in his present situation, but he failed to do the same to other people when he was in charge of his stupid defunct newspaper . And… Read more »

I can see from most these comments that Malawians are becoming angrier and angrier each because what is happening with tax payers money. It is a just cause to b angry for.

Unfortunate, you see, you Kasunda your babies had received mk50 000 at sanjika. If you sum up those moneys you would thouroughly be reaching almost the same amount or even more. This plea you are making is for, if i ma say cerebrity….. known!!!!! How about impoverished citizens languishing in poor hospitals? do they not deserve life? if all patients were to be flown out for such treatment, then i would be happy as a malawian. To the contrary, am a sad malawian. For God’s sake and the poor, why cant you Kasunda call for government so that come 2016,… Read more »

All journalists that attended APM feast must give Moyo the K50 pin they got. Journalistgate should be ploughed into saving life. Foolish journalists that kept quiet over the scone. Do you need allowances from the President or your organisation? Shame on you thief collaborators. Tenthani where is the money? You also of all?
