October target missed for Jakobo


By Sam Banda Jnr:

The target set by Friends of Eric Mabedi for the comedian to travel to India by the month of October for a kidney transplant has been missed.

Friends of Eric Mabedi sounded an SOS that the veteran comedian and actor was in need of K20 million for urgent kidney transplant.


The government stepped in later saying they would help Mabedi and indicated he was on the October 28 list.

But last Friday the government said it is yet to get feedback from Artemis Hospital in India.

Ministry of Health and Population Services spokesperson, Joshua Malango, said the government is set, having done all the paperwork.


Malango said they sent Mabedi’s medical history and that the hospital acknowledged.

“The hospital gives us feedback after consultations with experts before travels; as such, we are waiting for feedback,” he said.

Malango could not be reached yesterday on progress and whether they have finally got feedback.

Mabedi, who is undergoing dialysis, Wednesday said he is still waiting to hear from the government.

“I am still waiting but I will be travelling to Lilongwe on Friday,” he said.
