The Bishops were Archbishop Tarcizio Ziyaye of Lilongwe Archdiocese, Archbishop Thomas Msusa of Blantyre Archdiocese, Bishop Emmanuel Kanyama of Dedza Diocese, Bishop Peter Musikuwa of Chikwawa Diocese , Emeritus Bishop Allan Chamngwera and Bishop Pagan.

The late Fr. Kamalo died at Pirimiti Hospital after battling with diabetes and High Blood Pressure and was laid to rest on Monday at Diocesan cemetery in Zomba.

In a funeral mass held at Zomba Cathedral, Archbishop Msusa said that priests are very instrumental in providing sacraments to the Christians and so their death is a big blow not only to the Bishops and Diocese but the whole Christianity fraternity.

“I am deeply shocked by his death. Priests are our collaborators, they are the ones who run the parishes on our behalf and administers sacraments to the Christians. The death of Fr Kamalo, is a major blow to the whole church in Zomba Diocese and beyond,” said His Grace.

Archbishop Msusa also thanked all the medical officers, good willed people, priests for the support they rendered to the late Fr Kamalo when he was not feeling ok.

Delivering his homily, Fr. Peter Mulomole of Zomba Diocese, said that the whole church was taken by surprise at hearing about the death Fr. Kamalo, who remained faithful and dedicated to his duties.

Fr Kamalo was born on 14 September 1941 and was ordained as a priest on 18th April 19971.

He served in the following parishes Liwonde, Lisanjala, Mayaka, Chipini, Matiya and Domasi. He also worked as a lecture at Nankhunda Seminary.

The Late Fr. Kamalo also worked as an advisor to the Bishop from 1981 up to 2014, and was also a chaplain in Prisons and hospitals.

Thanks to Fr. Dennis Kamalo. You taught the youth how to play soccer while at Pirimiti parish. But above all the day you took us to Thondwe seminary in 1975. The days when you were serving with the late Fr. Seba. May your soul rest in peace.May the soul of Fr. Elias Njaidi too rest in peace.
