Mia was also a powerful figure in the ruling Malawi Congress Party (MCP) where he was vice president.

The donation at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre was done by the Mia family in conjunction with MCP officials through ‘Feed the Frontline Health Workers initiative’.

Sidik Mia’s widow, Abida Mia who is also MCP  member of parliament for Chikwawa Mkombezi constituency and a deputy minister of lands, told Nyasa Times in an interview that she appreciates  healthcare workers in the country because they sacrifice a lot to care for Malawians.”

She said: “Healthcare workers are seeing more people dying than they normally do and they are required to work long hours and stay away from their families, they need some care.”

Abida Mia said she decided to help  feed frontline staff  “so they don’t have to think where their next meal is coming from while on duty.”

MCP Campaign Director, Moses Kunkuyu, said the gesture is what Mia would have loved to see happening.

Meanwhile, founder of the initiative, Della Kulemeka, has commended the gesture by the Mia family, saying it will go a long way in ensuring that health workers, who are currently overwhelmed with the pandemic, are well taken care of.

Every charitable gesture should be applauded as long as it has no political motives.
