Malawi’s First Lady in waiting

A former member of parliament from Balaka North Gertrude Handrina Maseko is now set to step in the Promised Land as her dream to be the country First Lady can now be fulfilled following the election of her companion Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika as Malawi’s President.

It is expected that – if all goes well- Maseko and President Mutharika would tie the knot and there will be a State wedding to regularise the affair.

Maseko has been reluctant to comment on her affair with Mutharika, saying it is a “private matter.”

However, she accompanied him to the swearing-in ceremony as President at the High Court and was seen dressed immaculately in blue befitting the missus of a Head of State.

The 74-year-old President Mutharika is a widower for 30 years following the death of his beloved Christophine, a woman from the Caribbean; and a proud father of three children—two girls and a boy—Monique, Moyenda and Mahopela: all of them prominent lawyers in the United States of America.

Professor Mutharika became the fifth President of the Republic of Malawi and earned himself yet another prefix to his already long name: His Excellency the State President.
