BLANTYRE--Former First Lady Callista Mutharika called police to Ndata Farm on Thursday to chase daughters of her late husband, Pres Bingu wa Mutharika.
Family sources and police confirmed to MaraPost the squabbles started on 6th October 2012 when Mutharika's daughters Duwa and Tapiwa went with friends to the mansion to hold a barbecue.
"Callista was annoyed. She asked Reverend Billy Gama to call police to [get rid of] the children as she was still mourning. The police told her that it was a family affair. She went into the house and never came out but police came and chased them," said a family member.
On Thursday, Tapiwa, Duwa and the late president's only son who accuse his brother Professor Peter Mutharika and widow Callista of stealing their fathers wealth went to the house to change locks.
"They came in when Callista was out, but later Callista came with Police officers with guns and shoved off the children. There were a lot of shouting and insults before the kids went off," said another family member who witnessed the fracas.
The children drove to their father's lawyers in Blantyre where it was said they were looking for documents which prove that they own the property.
"Nobodys speaks about Bingu's will, everybody refers to documents. The matter is very complicated but we hear Peter is siding with the Callista as they have stocked billions for campaigns," said a close friend of Mutharikas.
Tapiwa confirmed the squabbles saying they were appealing for government help to distribute the estate of the former president before it is "looted".
