Angry people chasing away Information Minister Jappie Mhango at the funeral of former MP Tasokwa Msika in Rumphi.

Mhango confirmed the incident, saying he sped off in a haste.

Sources at the funeral ceremony said that all was peaceful until an overzelous Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) official stood up during the eulogies and declared Mhango would retain his parliamentary seat in 2019. Mhango floored Msiska in the 2014 parliamentary elections.

Our source at the funeral ceremony said family members felt insulted by the DPP remarks and asked Mhango to leave the funeral home peacefully to which he obliged.

In an interview Mhango blamed politics for the incident saying the area, Junju where the funeral took place is the stronghold of the Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

Mhango is one of the closest allies of President Peter Mutharika and one of the key ministers in the 20 strong cabinet.

He is accused of leaking some documents to the media over the purchase of K300 million vehicles for leader of opposition in parliament Lazarus Chakwera and speaker Richard Msowoya.

Both Chakwera and Msowoya, president and vice president of MCP deny any wrong doing.

Mhango said he had To leave the place to respect the will of the bereaved family.

    Akuti official wa DPP yo anachita kutumidwa ndi Japi yemweyo kuti azinena zopusa zo. Mbuzi zokha-zokha.. Pamaliro sipopangira kampneni. Whether the area is MCP or any other party’s stronghold is not the issue.

    Ayi ife ndiongoonera,ee wadada mhango wapokera vimwekumweku.

  5. Winston Msowoya says:

    I would like to dispute the fact that DPP 20 cabinet Ministers is strong.The truth of the matter is that the DPP present cabinet is worst than any cabinet I have ever seen since independence 51 years ago.The cabinet is visionless,corrupt,incompetent and aboveall, obsolete.Malawians,pull-up your socks you have a long way to go and unless you desist from nepotism,tribalism and such divisive terms,Malawi will never reach the promised land.

    Japie ndiwe chindere chakufikapo

  7. That was a senseless move by the minister, why he can’t respect the funeral proceedings? I don’t blame the people for becoming furious.

  8. baba says:

    Japi is very stupid .u sazapiteso tizathana nawe. 2019 wuzachoka and wathela pompo

  9. FUNERAL IS FUNERAL MALAWIANS LETS BE UNITE TOGETHER AS ONE

  10. He together with that fellow DPP officia is stupid

  11. Balamanthu says:

    Development in a country should be given because we all pay taxes.It is not only DPP party followers that pay tax.T argue that northeners want development and should not chase away Jappie Tungwa mhango is just a show of how shallow peoples minds are.In as long as I pay tax which this DPP government abuses in such a grandiose manner, I should not be held slave to it because I am a tax payer.Distribution of development should therefore be even.

  12. Jap Mhango is a coward he is being used to betrying Northerners

  15. Kenkkk says:

    We don’t like puppet north ministers who sit in the cabinet watching silently and stupidly how other dpp ministers and the president allocate fully funded development projects to the south and nothing for the north. And you expect the people of the north to welcome these four north cabinet minister thugs who can’t defend their own region?

    We want ministers who can tell the president that bwana nanga kumpoto bwanji pamenepa?

    Jappie ,the point man for the attack on Parliament expenditure fled the scene in his newly bought Prado Vx !!
    This the top of the line Toyota’s in their class ! , It ‘s there for all to see
    Maybe he should tell us how much the Govt paid for it in these lean times

  21. losco says:

    Chasing away the closest ally of the head of state and u expect development in yo area? My people from dead north will cry for dev.till further notice.

  22. chatonda says:

    My interest is how the home of the former MP looks. Is there any sign of a road here as you can see from the photos? You MPs development starts from home. wake up. It was the same during the death of Prof. Donton Mkandawire where people had to clear the road at night because the president Bingu was coming. Where do you develop if not from home especially your colleagues from the north. This is a shame and a learning point.

  25. Ndinene Dzina says:

    Jappie is the one giving out confidential documents to journalists to write bad about his political opponents. He recently gave out docs about Parliamentary spending. Corrupt journalists wrote and published the story while ena angomudyela ndalamazo ndikumumwera mowa ku ma hotel osalemba story nkomwe.

  40. adyauleje says:

    There z no DPP in northern region don’t fool yourself Jappie and Mathanyula muzavomereza ndi pakamwa panu. Jappie has already acknowledged that the area is MCP stronghold. Zimvere muntolo one-toothed he-goat called Mathanyula. Next it will be you being stoned like a mad dog, beware! Mudakamuchotsa manu ndi legeni ameneyo! The few votes that DPP thought they got from north were stolen from MCP and others from lomwe tenants who are farming in minda ya anthu akumpoto (tenants). Northerners don’t tolerate nonsense!

  41. Chibanja tv says:

    Are those in jovial mood the bereaved family? After all what have they achieved so far? There is need to respect the dead other than putting ahead political affiliations its a tabooo tomorrow you will need the Mps’ assistance anthufe timakhala modalirana ndale sitidya dzulo mwaterodi nanga lero bwa?

      How did the minister left the place? Yes it was adramma.

  43. johni says:

    Our politicians are always insensitive. They are overzealous. Why do they want to politicise everything. Now he who was preaching austerity by accusing Speaker and Leader of opposition of driving poshy cars, what is he doing in that Prado? Double standards and cheap propaganda. Those Prados are all over the place, CEO for parastatals, police commissioners, chief secretaries, PSs, IG, ministers etc. Why pick on the Parliamentary officials?

  44. Kavuluvulu says:

    Kuthamangisidwa kwa Jappie pa maliro ndi kugulidwa kwa magalimoto a ku parliament zikukhuzana bwanji ?

  58. Percy Sledge says:

    I always feel irritated when small time politicians poke their noses during funerals. Here in Lilongwe it’s common in the townships where they think it’s a right for them to speak.

  60. SONG says:

    A sign of down fall of DPP. I told you people in this country do not want DPP. These are the results the whole Minister being chased away from his own constituency and later said it is strong hold of MCP shame!!!!!!!!!!!!! from you. That is why Dr Chakwera clearly stated that resign because people don’t want you in this country. Obama Chiumya was also booed during Tumbuka cultural function. Becareful DPP you are floating don’t think this country is Lhomwe.

  61. Benford says:

    No politics at the funeral please:

  62. master says:

    DPP was so stupid to politicise the funeral, they are burying their relative and one fool is saying Jappie Mhango will retain the seat, what type of nonsense is that?

  63. Mr Pheee says:

  64. Ozitsata says:

    Political statement must not be allowed at funerals and chasing people at funerals isn’t good at all. My question is , how much is the VX he is using? I thought this guy uses a Toyota corolla.
