From rango to regal: How Monica Chakwera is redefining class as Malawi First Lady

Calm, collected and visibly in control, First Lady Monica Chakwera stepped majestically in Parliament in Lilongwe on Friday to witness his love, President Chakwera, deliver the inaugural State of Nation Address (SONA).

But there was something spectacular about the simplicity of her outlook—choosing to look simple though elegant and standing.

This marks a remarkable difference from former first Lady Getrude Mutharika who, during SONA, always made news for mixing strange colors that, at some point, saw social media compare her to Rango.

The elegance in the red-blue dress Monica Chakwera put on, dazzled social media and tongues are wagging saying NO MORE RANGO DAYS!

Definitely, even Zambians who went to town over former First Lady’s scornful choice of dress can, today, sit on the laurels with remarkable admiration.

Nothing spectacular about her dress- koma Getrude was a big scandal. Let her try national wear like Calista and mama- it gives alot of dignity.

This game of comparing stupid things on people is not nice I tell you, particularly to the people being compared. Stop it, have something better to do Malawians, pleaseeee! Soon or later somebody will be arrested for making unpleasant remark/comparison on the lady being favourably compared today and you and her wont like it, trust me.

I fail to understand what specifically is newsworthy in this article. Well, don’t be surprised in the next two – three years when you see a monster from the same angelic first lady you the media is pampering. All you’re doing is nurturing and training her. It beats me to hear and read some of the articles that are put into the public domain for general consumption, is it because somebody is trying to pisition him/herself just to be seen/heard and end up getting cheap rewards like the Brian Bandas of this world? Can you please leave the crap in… Read more »
