A fight had erupted earlier today at Ndata between Bingu wa Mutharika’s widow, Callista and her step children Tapiwa, Duwa and Madalitso over the rightful occupants of the sprawling mansion.
Callista is said to have been annoyed with the ever-partying step children while she is still ‘mourning’ her departed husband. On the contrary, the children, who lost both their biological parents, were not happy with Callista’s control over their behavior in their “father’s house”
The children demanded Mrs Mutharika, nee Chapola, out of the house; threatening to change locks to the residence that also has the ‘Taj Mahal’ of the late president and his wife Ethel, on the far end.
There were a lot of shouting and insults before the kids went off after police intervention.
