Renowned host and interviewer Brian Banda had a rude awakening when he got some tough journalism lessons and a frank talk from the ruling party’s new catch, Ken Msonda.

Brian Banda Malawi Media

Had a rude awakening

In an aired interview of which a part has gone viral, Msonda decided to go all-guns-blazing against Banda who is arguably one of Malawi’s hard-hitting interviewers.

The interview that was wide-ranging shifted more from issues to personalities and it was at that juncture that Msonda decided enough was enough but should take the battle to the backyard of Banda.

Drama started when Banda alleged that Msonda was poor and that was the reason that he had decided to join the ruling DPP.

Msonda could not take the blow laying down and decided to probe from Banda if he had ever offered Msonda and his family food.

“You say I am poor, have I ever come to your home to beg?” queried Msonda.

He further indicated that the host was not aware of what he was talking about by insinuating tat Msonda has always been poor.

“Let me tell you something, you know nothing about the Msondas. We, the Msondas, are rich in both the spiritual and physical realm. We have done great things which, unfortunately, happened while you were young. Do you know that it was us who brought Lucky Dube in this country, we brought Mbilia Bell in this country?” a sounding-angry Msonda queried forcing the host to change tact and probe Msonda on other issues.

A reluctant Msonda however stuck to the issue and gave Banda a lecture on news values.

“Of what value is my poverty to the people of this country?” Msonda asked. “Please, can’t you focus on important issues that will benefit the whole country. What will someone in Chitipa benefit from discussing my poverty?”

When Banda changed and asked Msonda about his political future, Msonda declined to answer indicating that it was only God who could tell about the future of a person.

The hostile interview ended up forcing Banda to curtail it.

  1. Brian,sadziwa interview. Amawonetselatu mbali yomwe ali, amayiwala kuti ifeso ngati amalawi tikuzitsata ndale zathu komaso tili mu zipani zosiyana-siyana.

Munthu ngati ulibe fundo,kulibwino kukhala chete ngakhale mwayi oti ungalakhure dziko lonse mkukubva ulipo.

  2. KEN.. POINT OF CORRECTION, ITS NOT EVERY PLAN THAT GOD SUPPORT. DON’T USE THE NAME OF GOD IN VAIN. GOD IS HOLLY AND HE CAN NOT SUPPORT EVIL PLANS. SO JUST KNOW TS NOT EVERY PLAN THAT GOD IS HAPPY WITH IT. FOR EXAMPLE YOU ARE PLANNING OF KILLING SOMEONE AND YOU ARE DEDICATED AND U SUCCEED, SHOULD WE SAY ITS GOD FULL-FILING THOSE PLANS? IT IS NOT EVERYONE WHO IS SUCCESSFUL IS BY THE HANDS OF GOD, OTHERS ARE THROUGH THE HANDS OF THE DEVIL (SPLITTING BLOOD) AND ITS HARD FOR NON BELIEVERS TO KNOW SUCH PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY ALSO KNOW GOD THAN YOU DO. ITS ONLY GOD WHO KNOWS ABOUT OUR FUTURE AND WE CAN NOT RUN AWAY FROM IT. YOU CAN PLAN FOR YOU FUTURE TO BE A DOCTOR AND HAVE MONEY BUT IF GOD SAY NO, ITS A NO, NO MATTER HOW MUCH EFFORT YOU PUT OR HOW HARD YOU STUDY YOU CAN NEVER BE THAT IF GOD SAYS NO.. IN ADDITION TO THAT ITS NOT EVERY BLESSINGS THAT COMES TO YOU IS ASCRIBED BY GOD, BE ALERT.

  3. I listened to the interview and I think Brian is seriously losing track. Ken was right because issues Brian asks are more personal and add no value to lives of us Malawians. Its a pity its now clear he is working for somebody or his fall from State House still haunts him. Brian asks questionable questions to those that align with DPP so much so that he demonstrates he hates the party to the bone. He never talked about Ken’s poverty when he was in PP… He should indeed brace himself for embarrassment if he doesn’t go back to the drawing board. He should learn to avoid taking sides in his interviews.

  4. ,,,,,,,,,,,Msonda declined to answer indicating that it was only God who could tell about the future of a person.,,,,how? we make plans and GOD only support our plans if we are dedicated to them< Mr msonda is not a good leader. Msonda is a poor man, if he was rich why defend himself – money talks" a msonda kunja kwacha?
