Speaking in an interview with faceofmalawi, Chimwala urged Malawians to develop the heart of sharing with the needy.
“Today being my birthday, I thought it wise to share the little i have with underprivileged Children.
“My belief is that those of us who have been blessed with the little something should share. There is a lot of blessings in sharing. God blesses the hand that giveth than the one that taketh,” said Chimwala.
He added: “Let me take this advantage of my special day today to encourage my fellow Christians to develop the heart of sharing with underprivileged people as Muslims do.
“Muslims invade the street to celebrate the birth of their Prophet and they also share the little they have with the needy while us Christians the story is different.”
On his part, one of the organizers of Chimwala’s party, Asabuni Phiri hailed Chimwala for the kind gesture of sharing with the needy.
