Even the most successful people in their careers aren’t immune to sometimes strange and traumatic soap-operatic events in their personal life.
This was proved when Michael Mgwira, a senior corporate manager from Malawi, publicly revealed intimate details about the paternity of the four children he had until then assumed were his.
DNA testing unmasked the truth to him that four of the six children he had we raising together with his wife, Mirriam, were not of his flesh, but had been fathered by someone else.

In the message which has now be repeatedly shared on social media platforms he said: “You may have been hearing rumours regarding what is happening with my family. This message is meant to communicate the correct position of the situation.”
He then goes on to explain that he decided to order DNA tests for his children on 28 January, 2018 and received the results on 1 March, 2018. He announced the results and asked for people to pray for the children who would be traumatised by the turn of events.
“I am sorry and deeply disappointed to inform you that DNA results have shown that I am not the biological father of Elton, Hellen, Kamwadi and Lucy Ngwira. As you would understand, we have a crisis in the family and as an immediate measure I have separated from Miriam while the parents discuss the way forward. Please pray for the children who shall be traumatised by this unwanted situation.”
