Chakwera, Chilima mourn Semphere

President Lazarus Chakwera has joined hundreds of people who are paying tributes to the chairperson of Malawi Human Rights Commission (MHRC) who succumbed to covid-19 on Thursday.

Late Semphere  when he was taking an oath at MHRC

In his condolence message, Chakwera says Semphere was elected to the position of chairperson of MHRC just a few months ago.

“Reverend Semphere had dedicated his life to the service of Christ Church and the country as evidenced by the various offices he held throughout his life,” says Chakwera.

Also mourning Semphere are UTM and Second Lady Mrs Mary Chilima who posted in various social media platforms describing how the country has lost in the death of Semphere, described as humble by many people but a great teacher and preacher.

Apart from being a preacher, Semphere was also a writer and journalist who founded the Trans World Radio and was a columnist.

Paja SKC and JB ankati COVID-19 kulibe and advised people not to observe prevention measures. Now many people are dying because of you.

For Semphere, he had his strengths. But his image was damaged when it transpired that he had shared with Chakwera questions meant for presidential debate for him to have advantage over others. Chakwera and Semphere were both from Lilongwe district

Very false indeed. When Trans world opened l was there at the opening. The first officer and founder was late Mr Willie Msopole.. He was the manager. Later on Late Pearson Chunga joined through mazin but later came to Malawi. Late Patrick Semphere joined much later after others who led this institution. It is better for the writer to first enquire for details from the radio authoorities before posting.

In Malawi we are blessed with two Patricks, these two men are a class above the rest but rarely celebrated. The first Patrick is Semphere, the next Patrick is Reuben Kaudzu, these Patricks are patriarchs, fathers in the land. We are now left with Patrick Reuben Kaudzu, a man who has impacted thousands of students for years but little or no recognition is given to him. Malawi’s real heroes are behind the scenes. Rest in peace Semphere, we will meet again soon.

Ladies and gentlemen, the biggest mistake one would make in life is to assume. This story is lacking facts in some areas. It is not true that late Semphere founded Trans World Radio. He took it over from Pearson Chunga who after working for many years for Transworld Radio in Manzini, Swaziland decided to have one in Malawi to serve in the local language since the one in Swaziland was all in English. It’s important to do proper research before publishing your stories to avoid exposing your ignorance when you are not ignorant at all, but careless.
