According to his elder son, Patience Kalanzi-Mbewe,  his father complained of stomachache and was later diagnosed of lung cancer at KCH recently.

“While receiving treatment at the hospital, My father could not make it and succumbed to the disease,” he said.

“ It’s with great sadness that he has died,” said the grief stricken son.

He said his body will be taken from his house in Area 47 to his home village in Mayani, Traditional Authority (T/A) Tambala in Dedza District on Thursday afternoon for burial which will take place on Friday.

As a politician, he said, Kalanzi-Mbewe joined politics way back during Multi-Party democracy. He served in the United Democratic Front (UDF) as a Deputy Regional Governor, in Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) as Regional Governor for the Centre (during late Professor Bingu Wa Mutharika era) and he joined People’s Party (PP) as a National Campaign Director.

Recently, he re-joined DPP and was yet to be re-introduced to the party members at a political rally scheduled for Lilongwe, he said.

Born on September 29, 1959, Kalanzi-Mbewe is survived by a wife and four children.

    MHSRIP. Useless guy though. Is this time to be joining DPP the way things are? The DPP is tip-toying the construction of a cancer centre that could have given him life

  12. GN Phiri says:

    I believe these sentiments should have been expressed while he was alive, ideally all it means you are throwing your tantrums at the bereaved family at the time they are mourning their departed loved one! wakufa sadziwa kanthu bi.
