MALAWI FIRST LADY IN PREGNANCY RUMOURS

Circulating rumours claim that Malawi First Lady Callista Mutharika is pregnant and she has been centre of attraction in public engagements as people want to get glimpse on her new looks.

However, the rumours are unsubstantiated and there has been no official announcement confirming the pregnancy from the State House or any other official entity.

Government officials say the matter is “private.” While close family sources say the rumours are “absolutely not true.”

The First Lady continues to look gorgeous and bubbly though.

In her recent public engagement on Thursday in Dowa district, she called on men to be in the forefront in family planning and reproductive health issues.

Mrs Mutharika, who is also the coordinator for Callista Mutharika Safe Motherhood Foundation, made the call when she presided over the launching ceremony of Family Planning Association of Malawi’s (FPAM) mobile vans, aimed at providing health and reproductive servicesto the remotest areas of Dowa and Kasungu districts.

“As head of families, men should play a leading role in practicing family planning methods. They should not leave everything to do with family planning to the ladies,” said the First Lady.

She further commended FPAM for the youth targeted heath and reproductive services, saying most youths lose their lives due to early pregnancies.

“The youth have the right to seek health and reproductive services, and I am appealing to parents not to bar them from doing so,” said Mutharika.

Speaking during the ceremony, UNFPA country representative, Athanase Nzokirishaka pledged continued support to FPAM and government in their quest to ensure safe motherhood in the country and commended the First Lady for her presence at the function.

“Your presence at this ceremonyshows great commitment on safemotherhood,” said Nzokirishaka, whose organization supports a great part of FPAM’s activities.

The two vans; one of which will be based in Dowa while the other in Kasungu, were bought from South Africa to the tune ofK12 million, with funding from the Netherlands’ Strategic Alliance with International NGOs (SALIN).

The vans, which have two compartments each with two beds and a generator enabling the flow of electricity and water, will among others, provide family planning, post abortion, cervical cancer screening, voluntary counselling and testing (VCT) and pregnancy testing services. Nyasa Times
