Khumbo denies using K400m Covid-19 fund for his hospital bills: ‘MASM paid’

Former Vice President Khumbo Kachali on Monday refuted allegation that the Tonse alliance government paid his hospital bills in South Africa using Covid-19 funds.

Khumbo Kachale: Feeling better

Over the weekend, some Malawians on social media alleged that President Lazarus Chakwera released K400 million from Covid-19 funds to settle Kachali’s hospital bills.

However, Kachali, who is also the president of Freedom Party [FP], one of the political parties in Tonse alliance, described the reports as fake news.

Speaking in a telephone interview, PF publicity secretary Verson Ngulube told Nyasa Times that the said K400 million was paid by Medical Aid Society of Malawi (MASM).

According to him, no any government money was used to pay Kachali’s hospital bills.

“That’s a total lie. The K400 million was from MASM. Those spreading the news they just want to destroy Kachali and Chakwera’s image to the public,” he said.

While not saying the  type of the disease the former vice president is suffering from, Ngulube said Kachali is almost fine now and he will be back any time.

Kamuzu could not tolerate it chifukwa samafuna kuti pazipezekanso wina wodya papakulu ngati iyeyo. Ankafuna yekha basi azipita ku UK pooing in the highest class hotels kumeneko meanwhile ziweto zake the crokamuzudiles zikukhwasula the likes of Gadama. The man was ill of something, that’s why he looked bored all his life. Poor chap ended up grooming his aides (Tembo, Ntaba, Bakili, etc) into little nutcases who would eventually characterize the filth of Malawi politics. Pang’onopang’ono politics ya Malawi ikuchira, the old dirt is getting off the scene,…
