    We are asking our good president to send a good number of delegates , Zambia is very near and the president can afford to hire buses and minibuses to escort our president to go and attend The Late Sata Chilufya funeral , he should not worry about the foreign currency , there is plenty of Zambian Kwacha which he can change at Mchinji border.

    Sata RIP. What is wrong with us as Malawians that only Mugabe and Gebuza came to Malawi during the burial of Late Bingu and yet many Presidents and Govt dignitaries from other countries will attend the burial ceremony for Late Sata next week on 11 November 2014? This is food for thought for all of us as Malawians that we must cooperate with other countries for national recognition

  17. l join the Zambians and the Santa’s family in mourning Cde Michael C. Sata who passed on after battling a long illness, indeed, the void left by Cde Sata would be difficult to fill, not only in Zambia but in Africa as a whole. l say to the grieving Zambians be of good heart, it is my humble submission that the departed Cde will find peace in the arms of the Almighty.

    Can the Mid-Night 6 of Malawi borrow a leaf from our Zambian brothers? Their departed president is going to be buried in a dignified manner next Tuesday with no broken ribs, no illegal change of name (Daniel Phiri) and with one true Date of Death . Well done our Zambian cousins .

  23. clement says:

    Fare thee well Sata, Malawi will remember you for your generosity. You gave us fuel in times need, what a brotherly love, will miss you. I hope our president will remember to take yokapepesera pa maliro. And please Omulangizanu mumuuze asakanene kuti ndikubweletsani “gift” as he is used to do.

    To attend the funeral of a man whom his elder brother had chased. Shame! Did he visit him and when he was sick?? He even failed to attend independence celebration of Zambia for fear he would face the same man he wants to see in the coffin.

  31. Mbanangwa says:

    You should not appeal for peace in Zambia. Why? Zambians are already peace loving people. Since their leader passed on, no body has tried to usurp power. There is a lot of calm in that country unlike most of the Africa nations.
    We simply need to applaud Zambians for keeping calm, a great good example for Africa. I salute you all.

      Obviously you are not up to date with current events in Zambia. There were fights in Zambia you fool
