Speaking after distributing the items at Chifira, Ng’oma said he is emulating the sharing and caring spirit of President Lazarus Chakwera who always encourages Malawians to take care for the elderly.

According to Ng’oma, he decided to celebrate with the elderly because of the critical role they play in shaping the society.

“I am happy to be with these elderly today and I must thank President Dr Lazarus Chakwera for teaching us to be caring,kind and value the elderly people in our constituencies,” He said.

One of the beneficiaries Elube Kamanga has thanked Ng’oma for the gesture, saying that the assistance has come at the right time considering that the elderly people are being neglected by some quarters for different reasons.

Over 600 elderly people from Traditional Authorities Fukamapiri, Malengamzoma and Zilakoma have been earmarked to benefit from the initiative.
