Tadikila – standing second from left – revealing his privileged luxury life on social media
MANGOCHI (Papious Liwonde, Malawi NewsNow) – President Peter Mutharika’s step son Tadikira Mafubza Mutharika has sparked fury on social media after blowing K16 million with friends parting at the lake over the weekend.
Malawi is one of the poorest countries in Africa, with almost three quarters of the population living below the poverty line.
Many were disgusted by the flashy behaviour of First Lady Mrs Gertrude Maseko Mutharika’s playboy son.
While many children are dying because of poorly constructed classrooms and sitting on rocks in schools, Tadikila, who is said to be involved in bootleg deals on behalf of the First Lady, spent the K16 million at a three day party in the lakeshore district of Mangochi.
He booked hotel rooms for his friends branding themselves as “rich gang” and bought them alcohol (including expensive whiskies of up to K80,000.00 per bottle) and also ferried them from Blantyre/ Lilongwe to Mangochi.
Tadikila does not work but he is involved in many procurement deals.
“Spending millions for booze yet majority suffering?” wanderered one on Twitter who claimed to be supporter of Mutharika’s ruling DPP.
Tadikila had just come from UK where he attended a course and was known also for extravagant antics, according to Malawi High Commission sources in London.
