The news that the first couple is expecting their first kid has been received with alot of etnusiasm among Malawians.
Others are taunting the president that he is too old to father a kid, they are relating the news to;
The Old Man and the Umbrella joke!
An 80 year old man was having his annual check up and the doctor asked him how he was feeling. "I've never been better!" he boasted. "I've got an eighteen year old bride who's pregnant and having my child! What do you think about that?" The doctor
considered this for a moment, then said, "Let me tell you a story. I knew a guy who was an avid hunter. He never missed a season. But one day went out in a bit of a hurry and he accidentally grabbed his umbrella instead of his gun." The doctor continued, "So he was in the woods and suddenly a grizzly bear appeared in front of him! He raised up his umbrella, pointed it at the bear and squeezed the handle. "And do you know what happened?" the doctor
queried. Dumbfounded, the old man replied "No." The doctor continued, "The bear dropped dead in
front of him!" "That's impossible!" exclaimed the old man. "Someone else must have shot that bear." "That's kind of what I'm getting at..." replied the doctor.
So if the old man didnt kill the bear, who may have done it? Could the impending baby be the reason for the first couple's recent reconciliation and kissing during easter after another rumour had its turns in town that the marriage was on the rocks.
Whatever it comes out to be I would like to convey my congratulatory message to my president for planting the seed in the her excellency the first lady. All the best mai a Chembekezo....
Some those are of the view that at his age he still has some energy to produce even two more kids.
