Following MaraPost’s story on the dispute between Malawi former first lady and her children of her late husband, there are new developments
BLANTRYRE--The growing dispute between former first lady Callista and her step children has prompted Peter Mutharika, younger brother to late president Bingu wa Mutharika to intervene, Malawi News has reported Saturday.
Southern Region Police on Friday confirmed that there were some misunderstanding at Ndata Farm between the former first lady and her step daughters.
The weekend paper says the Peter Mutharika has summoned parties as “an uncle, in-law and head of the family” to iron out the differences that have engulfed the family.
“The professor is aware of the differences and he talked to them but the discussions could not be concluded on the phone,” Mutharika’s Personal Assistant Ben Phiri is quoted as saying.
MaraPost broke story of the dispute this week when Callista didn’t allow the children to hold a party at Ndata Farm, claiming she was still mourning her husband, Bingu.
“The former first lady went to Mikolongwe Police to report that her step daughters wanted to hold a party at Ndata Palace yet she was mourning her husband,” Southern Region Police publicist Nicolas Gondwa said.
