The Prestonfield house cost £450 per night.

Scottish people are said to have expressed anger on their government for giving Mutharika an expensive accommodation.

Scots fault their government for giving huge sums of money to an individual when many Malawians are living in poverty.

However the Scottish government has defended the luxury accommodation saying Heads of States are accorded with such luxury stay in the country.

The Scottish government disclosed that part of Mutharika’s bills were paid by other partners.
