Somber mood has again struck the Peoples Party (PP) in Malawi’s Northern Region. Barely five days after it buried its Mzuzu city’s Chibanja South ward counselor Charles Nyirongo who police reported was killed in a love affair fight over a divorced woman the party also has lost its Karonga South counselor Wilson Kafwirangachi Nyirenda.
According to family member Frank Kadali Mkandawire, who addressed mourners at his house Salisbury Line in Mzuzu, Nyirenda has for a long time suffered from High Blood pressure and last week was admitted at Mzuzu Central Hospital (MCH)where he passed on last Tuesday.
“ Nyirenda who was counselor for Khwawa ward at Chilumba in Karonga was attending a development meeting at Karonga district Assembly last week but he got sick and was rushed to the district hospital for treatment. When the situation was still not stable, he was rushed to Mzuzu Central Hospital for advanced treatment where he died last Tuesday,” Mkandawire told mourners.
He described the death of Nyirenda as big loss to the family since he was a bread winner.
Delivering a condolence message from PP’s president D Joyce Banda, Mzuzu city deputy Mayor Frazer Chunga who is also the party’s National Executive Committee Council (NEC) member said the former Malawi president was saddened that while tears were still fresh for the last week death, her party lost yet another figure, a situation he said was compromising developments the party planned to undertake in the area.
He prayed that his soul rest in peace.
Nyirenda who was in his 40’s is survived by three children and a wife and will be buried on Thursday at Sangilo village in Malawi’s Lakeshore district of Karonga.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
