Those who have wondered what kind of evil woman Callista Chapola is are beginning to get the truth about her.
She is a foul mouthed woman as demonstrated by her own conduct in recent United Transformation Movement rallies where she and her leader Saulos Chilima spent time despising President Peter Mutharika instead of telling Malawians what the movement is offering.
But that is minor about her. President Mutharika detailed how evil Callista is. She is a woman who values wealth more than a husband. She just proved herself that when her husband, the late Bingu wa Mutharika collapsed in April 2012.
The husband was rushed to Kamuzu Central Hospital in the early hours but she was nowhere near the husband she claimed to love.
Bingu’s brother, Peter, who is the current president, rushed to the hospital immediately and was later joined by others like former chief secretary Bright Msaka, former head of intelligence Binton Kutsaira, children and grandchildren among others but Callista was not there.
President Mutharika told thousands of people who had gathered at Katoto on Saturday to welcome him that as Bingu was in hospital, Callista was busy packing things from the State House to a house belonging to a friend in Area 10.
Callista arrived at the hospital after 4pm, six hours later after the collapse and admission of her husband. She had transferred some items from the State House by then.
And Mutharika was right on Saturday to say that Callista has no moral ground to start despising him.
Mutharika was also right to say that Callista is not the kind of woman to associate with. Evil is associated with her.
Many people believe that her coming into Bingu’s life contributed to the man’s downfall. When Bingu was in power, the woman made some statements that angered Malawians. Who can forget her statement about the scarcity of fuel that rural people needed not worry about the scarcity of gas as they do not need it in their lives.
To crown it all, president Mutharika told the people in Mzuzu on Saturday that the late Bingu confided in him that he had made a big mistake by marrying Callista and picking Joyce Banda as his running mate for the 2009 elections.
