Makawa, who was also a known hotelier and long time businessperson, died on Monday morning at Blantyre Adventist Hospital after a short illness.

A statement from Macra says Makawa’s remains will be collected from College of Medicine (CoM) Mortuary at noon on Tuesday, and will be taken to her residence in Namiwawa, Blantyre.

“ Macra will sorely miss her humility, professional determination, commitment, generosity and enormous contribution to the development of the communications sector in Malawi in her stay as board chairperson,” reads the statement in part.

The late Makawa studied hotel management at the Malawi Institute of Tourism (MIT). She also did some hotel management training in Switzerland.

She worked for Malawi Hotels and Kamuzu College of Nursing in the catering department before going full time into family businesses founded by her late father, Alexander John Ashan.

She managed Boadzulu Holiday Resorts in Mangochi in the past and some of the her businesses include Kambiri Lodge in Salima and Shire Highlands Hotel in Limbe, under the Alexander Hotels brand.

The late Makawa from Matapira Village, Traditional Authority Mazengera in Lilongwe is survived by a son, John and daughter, Eda.

Sad for her loss. But looking back what made her qualify as macra chair yet she did courses in Hotel management. How effective was she or were politucal considerations as typical with such boards?
Let us pray for the children she has left behind and the prosperity of her businesses

I learnt from her that as a manager/director one needs to go down to the customers/employees and chat/ interact with them to appreciate their challenges and preferences.
RIP woman of substance.
