Kumanda kunka anthu anthu, kungosiya zitserekwete za cashgate. I will always remember you ( Mr Matinga) the day I came to your office in Zomba last week when you came down the stairs escorting me up to my car despite your being superior than me in everything. You were my role model in both your profession and manners. I will always remember you!!
May your soul rest in ertenal peace!!!!!
