Mangulama died on Monday after collapsing at his house at Green Corner inBlantyre. He was pronounced dead on arrival at Mwaiwathu Private Hospital.

His body has been be taken to M’boola village and President Peter Mutharika is expected to attend the burial ceremony .

Announcing burial details at a news conference on Wednesday, one of the Trustees of the cultural grouping, Leston Mulli described Mangulama’s demise as a big blow and that he was a man of the people.

“He was very humble and very understanding. When some forces, especially  People’s Party regime tried to wipe out this grouping, he stood firm and remained focused despite the bad political weather at that time.

“He was our pillar and strongest man who always advanced the interests of all people regardless of their status in society,” said Mulli, who was flanked by the grouping’s Chef Executive Officer Muchanakwaye Mpuluka andTraditional Authority Ngolongoliwa.

Mulli also annjjuunced that the grouping has appointed Professor James Seyani as its acting national chairman for Mulhako wa Alhomwe.

On his part, T/A Ngolongoliwa, who heads the Chief Council, an umbrella body for all chief in the Mulhako belt, urged the grouping to remain united and forge ahead while advancing their interests in all spheres of live.

Mangulama, who was born June 16 1947 and survived with eight daughters and eight grandchildren, was appointed in the Board ofTrustees by late president Bingu wa Mutharika, who was one of the founding member.

He was recently appointed Commissioner for the Civil Service and Public Reform Commission by incumbent President Peter Mutharika.

He also retired as one of the respectable career civil servant who worked in various positions including being Dedza District Commissioner and Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Finance.

Mangulama also, one point served as Malawi High Commissioner to Japan and Director of the Public Procurement (ODPP), among other institutions.

  7. wa ku Mitchesi kuja!!!! says:

    Simply put, those castigating the whole Mulhakho, on this forum, at this juncture of Mr. Mangulama’s death, and even suggesting that the death is predetermined fate of the leaders of Mulhakho wa aLhomwe, are simply ignorant individuals. fate regarding death? My foot!
    Inasmuch as they have no sympathy or substantial contributions; they vent their personal frustrations at any opportunity; very inappropriate when the main subject is death of a good citizen. A very good person, who many or all the abusers never even met. Shame!

  8. BVUTO says:

    tHE first Patron of Mulhakho, BIngu died of cardiac arrest. Its national chairman dies of cardiac arrest. Kodi ndi matenda a Mulhalho kapena kudya gondolosi kwambiri alomwe? Chenjerani mutha nonse. Someone does not approve of this grouping that is dividing Malawi.

    May the soul of late Bright Mangulama rest in peace

  19. Dr Bright Msaka-Cypress University says:

    Mulhakho wa Lhomwe is an employment bureau. Professor Seyani eats and briefs nepotism and tribalism. This is a strategic appointment to advance mulhakholization in all important public positions. Shupit zanu alhomwe nonse

  20. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

    Mr. Mulli’s descriptions of The Man, Mangulama, is apt. No arguments there. And APM will have to show respect for The Man, by attending the funeral or some of the ceremonies; otherwise APM would be in dereliction of duty regarding paying tribute to his heritage.
    And James Seyani should now show his organization abilities, beyond teaching Botany at kachenjede. And good luck.

  21. mixed reaction says:

    So mulli is confirming that this is a political grouping,having indicated that at one point in time peoples party wanted to wipe it up. Which means there are no pp party members in mulakho wa alohmwe. That’s why I don’t associate my self with the group. To hell with the group. One by one you will follow your so called founder with the same type of death called” upon arrival he was pronounced dead”

  22. segerege says:

    mulli why politicising everything? which PP wanted to wipe out your grouping? mmm dzinazi kumapanga manyazi! Lirani maliro bwino pliz

  23. TruFactor says:

    Osadikira muyike kaye maliro bwanji? Kupupuluma ngati a PP bwanji?

  25. Thief Nkhongoigwa says:

    Paja ndinu alomwe kukonda maudindo.Zoona simungadikire Kaye kuti maliro tiyike? Are you telling me kuti power vacuum imene yabwera coz of this death inali yoti simukanatha kudikira two days kuti maluro ayikidwe Kaye?,,,,,,,,Nanunso amfumu ndiye patsogolo mmalo mopereka nzeru zabwino.

  26. Dingani says:

    Kulimbana ndi PP basi,ndiye muzuti Olive Branch. There was no need to mention PP. Kodi anthu inu munakhala bwanji. No wonder things are in chaos. Instead of minding proper issues you are distructed by PP. Za zii.

  27. Ethiopian justice says:

    Considering how this grouping operates, this death is like that of Hezibollah or Hamas leader
