According to state controlled Malawi Broadcasting Corporation, the burial ceremony at Nkutumula village in chief Makwangwala’s area in Ncheu was attended by Gertrude Mutharika, the First Lady, government and senior ruling Democratic Progressive Party officials.

The state radio says Chingwalu was mourned by the DPP secretary general Ecklen Kudontoni who described the late Chingwalu as a loyal and bonafide member of the party.

Chief Makwangala, according to MBC, described him as the pillar of development in his area. The radio did not say what killed Chingwalu but described the death as sudden.

A family representative, William Ntchito said they have lost a pillar.

“We have lost the family’s pillar and we will live to remember him at all times” said Ntchito.

Also present at the ceremony among others were, Director of State Residences, Peter Mukhito, Paramount Chief Ngolongoliwa, Chief Secretary to the Government, George Mkondiwa, Senior Chief Chikumbu and DPP Governor for Eastern Region, Charles Jika.

    Sorry indeed, not good

  2. Beast Msonda says:

    Now I get it. Both the president and the vice president come from one and the same district – Ntcheu. It now explains the support DPP gets from Ntcheu. Never knew that Peter’s mother was Ngoni.

    Is he his nephew or cousin? You need to get the real facts before making stories.

    Why not newsworthy? We have read about those people uknown and known on Nyasatimes that hanged themselves, Pastors that died of cardiac arrest, those that died of sleeping with prostitutes, those that died through car accidents, those that died after drinking in empty stomachs, the wives of the likes of John Tembo etc. Why do you single this one out? Those of you who hate APM will love to hate him even more when he crosses over 2019 on landslide victory.

    I knew a certain Chingwaru during the time I had some piece work on Bingu’s Ndata mansion. He was in charge of overall security at the farm. He was tall and used to travel on a motor bike, he was very dedicated to his duties. If you had displayed his photo, at least I could remember him.

    May his soul rest in peace.

  18. Tk says:

    And the importance of the death of a Nephew is news worthy how? And in the context of Malawi so what?
