BLANTYRE (MaraviPost)—Malawi government through the ministry of Health has finally flown radio personality and musician Nicolas Mbonela to South Africa for specialist treatment.

Mbonela, widely known as Che Nkope, is battling with Cardiogenic Shock, a condition in which the heart fails to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs.

Governmnet spokesperson Kondwani Nankhumwa confirmed that the ailing renowned radio personality was airlifted on Monday.

“He has already been admitted to Mill Park Hospital. Government will spend over K6 million for Mbonela’s treatment. It is our hope that he will get the best medical treatment for his heart problem,” said Nankhumwa.

This follows President Mutharika’s pledge to support Mbonela to receive best medical treatment outside the country.

“He will be there until his condition improves,” added Nankhumwa.
