Speculation has been rife on social media and various Whatsapp  discussion chat groups, that Chakuamba was dead.

But Chakuamba speaking from India confirmed he  had checked into al hospital for  medical treatment,

The veteran controversial politician said he has got wind of the death rumours.

Chakuamba said he started receiving lots of phone calls from people asking if he was alright.

He laughed and said: ‘When did I die and where?'”

“I am receiving treatment and alive. It’s not funny and totally disrespectful to make up a story like this,” he said.

Foreign Affairs minister Francis Katsaira confirmed on Friday that Chakuamba is in India on government sponsorship on unspecified sickness.

It is alleged Chakuamba has cancer.

The veteran politican attributed the rumour of his death to haters who do not wish him well.

Chakuamba, in his late 80s, is the only remaining politician in Kamuzu Banda’s 1966 historic cabinet and remains a political force to reckon with in the Lower Shire.

Mulungu achiritse dziko lathu la Malawi. Lets make comments on this forum that are constructuive. Kodi za imfa ya munthu should be taken as if its Manchester and Assernal playing? Za imfa zanu akukamba ndani? Let us not ignore our culture of being respectful to each other. Everyone was created by God Himself and He loves both sinners and the righteous. Those who wishes others bad samalani God can even take you before the one you think about.


Let us learn to respect our elders, yes he might have made serious mistakes here and there, but Honourable Gwandanguluwe Chakuamba Phiri, has spent most of his life serving his country tirelessly and patriotically. I salute him.

chete at No. 11. i think u missed the point. y all this off track comment? did Chakuamba brag about that he will not die? wakuuza kuti akuyankha mwathamo? i think u r a man with bad attitude. At nchalo recently, Chakuamba even said that his days r numbered. how can he then claim now that he won’t die?

Santana @ 10 ….if you are an imbecile with hearing problem like your master APM please do not show it here. Those who are real people and follow events know that the prophecy passed at exactly the same dates TB Joshua mentioned.

He never mentioned about death of president this time, he said and I quote ” I see trouble for a southern African president!”. I will not… Read more »
koma abale inu eeh

“Paliani”, full of nonsense, here anyway!!!!! Asa!!!!!
So, Joshua’s prophesy was about Zuma? Did Joshua tell you that, personally, or that is your own personal interpretation?
Man/Woman, you are so gullible! Unbelievable, especially in 2016.
The problem with these so-called Prophets’ forecasts is that they are so general; never specific to pin down. That is how these prophets get hold of people like you by the short hairs (or mach…nde, in Chichewa.) You are really hooked, aren’t you?
