The trending news that a Malawian senior corporate manager, Michael Ngwira, has publicly revealed all four children he had always believed he fathered with his wife, Miriam, were actually not his, has shocked Malawians with many calling for the relevant authorities to bring DNA machines to Malawi.
This follows DNA tests he ordered for his children whose results said he was not the biological father of the children.
The supposedly cheating wife, herself a finance manager at an insurance giant, NICO General, has been living with Ngwira for many years as a couple and had four children between them-Hellen, Elton, Kamwadi and Lucy.
They are now on separation, according to Ngwira.
In a message addressed to ‘family’ but now viral on the social media in Malawi, Ngwira, who is former general manager at Leasing and Finance Company (LFC) says the ‘family’ is free to inform anyone about the issue because “there is nothing to hide.”
Ngwira writes: “You may have been hearing rumours regarding what is happening with my family. This message is meant to communicate the correct position of the situation.”
He reveals that he had decided to order DNA tests for his children on January 28, 2018 and that the results were given to them on March 1, 2018.
“I am sorry and deeply disappointed to inform you that DNA results have shown that I am not the biological father of Elton, Hellen, Kamwadi and Lucy Ngwira. As you would understand, we have a crisis in the family and as an immediate measure I have separated from Miriam while the parents discuss the way forward. Please pray for the children who shall be traumatised by this unwanted situation.
“It is our view that whoever is the biological father/s should be unmasked and be given the responsibility to look after his / their offsprings. You shall be updated regarding any new developments soon. I will send copies of the DNA results shortly,” writes Ngwira.
It is not clear what prompted him to order the DNA tests.
