Lundu made the remarks on the presence of President Peter Mutharika while asking him to replace the organization with World Vision Malawi.

"Goal Malawi is stupid! What is Goal Malawi? Who are they? I don't want them to work in my area. They are rude, very rude even to chiefs, tchupitii . We want Malawi World Vision back. We have been working with this organization and their officials are good, very good. I have said it." said Lundu.

When asked to clarify how and where the organization was disrespectful to the extent of calling it stupid and ban it in his area, Lundu said "I don't want to talk about it again."

Recently, Lundu banned the Church of one of the country's Prophet, Shepherd Bushiri to carry its services in his jurisdiction.

Some activists have so far condemned Lundu for attacking the organization without valid reasons.
