Moya, who was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2012, got discharged from the ICU on Tuesday, December 2.

“I had a successful kidney transplant surgery on 25 the November. And got discharged from the ICU on Tuesday 2nd December,” said Moya on Friday.

He was supposed to undergo kidney transplant on November 21 2014, after satisfying all medical and legal requirements.

But doctors could not do the procedure as the hospital demanded pay $2500 (about K1.25 million) for the anti-rejection injection process.

The K1.25 million for the anti-injection injection was apparently not initially covered in the quotation Friends of Limbani worked on.

This forced Friends of Limbani, a task force that took trouble to raise funds for former Malawi News Editor to make a fresh appeal to well-wishers for K1.25 million to finance an anti-injection injection bill for the journalist.

Friends of Limbani, a task force of Malawian professionals in various fields of the economy and chaired by journalist Anthony Kasunda, raised about K10 million from individuals and corporations for the ailing journalist, his spouse and sister travel to India for specialist treatment.

Moya needed about K15 million covering surgery, consultation, treatment, admission, travel and other expenses.

Praise the Lord! God is great. May His name be glorified. Get well soon.


Wonderful. Glory be to God. I however hope we need to procure those machines rather than spending such millions on a single patient. I know there are many people suffering but cant acces help bcz they are financially unable and are not connected to friends like those of Limbani.


Good news. Wishing him quick recovery. When you come back please dont be editor of columns which attack imdividuals and their private life. This country has more trash to be exposed and corrected through good journalism. I like what the Nation newspaper is doing to expose all filthy going on.


Ambuye alemekezeke! Zabwino zonse Limbani!


I would like to thank you journalist for showing a caring spirit to one of your own. You have taught is many lessons. You can do better by publishing all the support you get and allow the public to appreciate more. You deserve the part of the back
