Rapper cum activist Third Eye has hit out at Malawi Finance Minister, Goodall Gondwe, for embarrassing the country over a recent donation by Egypt intended to help curb the maize crisis.
The hip hop artist suggested that the money donated by the Egyptians was too small an amount for a country’s Minister of Finance to receive it in person.
On Tuesday the Arab Republic of Egypt donated K20 million ($27,000) to Malawi to assist Malawians affected by hunger.
Minister of finance Gondwe led government officials at the cheque presentation ceremony where he saluted the North African country for the support saying the money will help save lives of millions of people.
Gondwe’s presence at the ceremony however peeved rapper Third Eye, real name Mandela Mwanza, who suggested on Twitter that the minister should not have attached too much importance to the donation.
The artist also observed that the donation was too small considering it was coming from a “whole government.”
“$27,000 from a whole government? Received by our finance minister in person. I’m done man.” tweeted Third Eye to express his frustrations.
