Malawi top comedian Daliso Chaponda abused on Facebook over father’s ministerial dismissal

Malawi’s greatest comic export, Daliso Chaponda has become a victim of abusive messages on social media following his father Dr George Chaponda’s dismissal as minister of Agriculture.

Daliso Chaponda: Abused on Facebook

The minister has come under fire for his involvement in the Zambia-Malawi maize procurement scandal. In addition, on Tuesday his house was raided by graft-busting body Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) where a few goods including millions of Kwachas were confiscated.

Apparently, this development has given a chance to some disgruntled members of the society to attack the son, Daliso who is based in the UK and is apolitical.

One Facebook user, Taonani Ochaponda posted on Daliso’s wall, “Hie there? whats this all about maize?”

As a comedian and satirist, Daliso responded: “The Maize diet used selectively lowers the tryptophan, serotonin and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid levels in the central nervous system without affecting catecholamine content. These changes are maximal as early as 48 hours after exposure to the Maize diet.”

He further posted: “My Facebook message box has been filling with all kinds of toxic abusive messages from Malawi so I will not be checking it for a while. If you are a friend, you should know my number so contact me that way. If you are a promoter and it’s about a gig, contact [email protected].”

Daliso is a successful Malawian born comedian who has performed in United Kingdom, South Africa and Malawi.

Leave him alone. His father’s mistake is not his mistake.

Jeremiah 31:29-30 New International Version

29 In those days people will no longer say,

‘The parents have eaten sour grapes,
and the children’s teeth are set on edge.’

30 Instead, everyone will die for their own sin; whoever eats sour grapes—their own teeth will be set on edge.
