Home away from home: Aunt Tiwo feels at home in South Africa

To people of Malawi, the name of Aunt Tiwo goes with a story that many cannot forget because of the debate it sparked off.

Back in the year 2011, Malawians witnessed the first gay engagement of Steve Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalanga popularly known as Aunt Tiwo.

The two were arrested and put in prison but were freed following concerns that international human rights organizations raised regarding the development during the then Malawi leader Bingu wa Mutharika.

Meanwhile, Malawi News Hub has learnt that Aunt Tiwo, who claims to be a transgender woman, is happily living in the rainbow nation of South Africa.

According to Mail & Guardian , Aunt Tiwo is living in South Africa as home with help from some human rights bodies including Amnesty International after spending sometime in Madagascar.

Now in a relationship with another man, Aunt Tiwo says that will never live in Malawi again.

“I love my family too much,But I will only visit. And then come back. I will never live in Malawi again. Never”, stated Aunt Tiwo.

He went on to say that his relationship with Malawians living in South Africa is not all that good because they show discrimination against people like him.
