Heroine and historic figure Rose Chibambo is likely to spend another night in hospital after she was admitted on Monday for heart attack.

Her relations say she will struggle to pay the hospital bills at Mwaiwathu in Blantyre and have since extended a begging bowl to well wishers.

“Athough she is on money, she does not have the money,” said Chibambo’s grand daughter Juliet Mhango.

Chibambo is on a K200 bank note.

She is the first female cabinet minister in Kamuzu Banda first ever cabinet of 1964.

Chibambo’s penniless status has restarted debate on former cabinet minister Moses Dossi proposal for a law that would allow senior politicians like Chibambo access state funds for their upkeep and social welfare.

Veteran politician Gwanda Chakuamba went on television asking people to help him because he had no money.

President Peter Mutharika and other well wishers sent him cash upkeep.

Mhango said it was pathetic that Chibambo, who is supposed to hold a high status position in the society, should now live like a destitute.

If my history is right, she was in prison and gave birth, then went into exile. Which means that she could not have received any money from the Banda government. I can only imagine how she survived this long. God bless her and het family. God fprgive those that don’t use their common sense.

Most prominent people who have gone to Mwaiwathu Hospital never made it. I wonder why people rush to Waiwathu leaving other better hospitals.


Sorry for that but this should be a wake up call to our politicians they trust private hospitals and not our public hospitals the reason is simple they use tax payers money to pay their bill when they are in power leaving poor Malawia’s to suffer in public hospitals with no drugs please our leaders try to buy drugs and employ qualified doctors and all necessary equipment in our public hospitals then we will have good medical care in Malawi and everyone will be using these public hospitals.


Very sad indeed koma poti ndi Mtumbuka zilibe kanthu akanakhala munthu.
