President Joyce Banda yesterday donated about 500 pairs of shoes to the needy in Blantyre.
The donation was handed over to Traditional Authority (T/A) Kunthembwe at a rally where the President also handed over truck loads of food stuff following shortage of food in the area.
The President also visited some newly rehabilitated houses under the Mudzi Transformation Trust.
The trust’s objective is to mobilise accessible, responsive and flexible resources to support social and economic projects for the transformation of the lives of Malawians in all 28 districts of the country.
The President also denied assertions that her utterances that she is receiving death threats were meant to buy public sympathy to woo votes.
“Why should I buy sympathy when multitudes attend my rallies? Let us wait and see,” she said while challenging her critics of the support.
She, however, did not comment on the controversies rocking her People’s Party (PP) currently conducting primary elections.
But she advised those who have excelled to be servants of the people.
PP provincial chairperson Isaac Nyakamera warned Banda’s critics that they risk being sued because the party will not watch castigation of their leader.
During the rally, T/A Kunthembwe asked for social services such as schools, health facilities and bitumen road to link Chileka and Mwanza. The President promised to look into the issues.
