Chanco principal succumbs to Covid-19 as death toll soars ever higher

Principle of Chancellor College, a constituent college of the University of Malawi , Prof Richard Tambulasi has died of Covid-19.

Tambulasi:  Dies of Covid-19

He is one of the 38 people who have succumbed to the deadly virus within the last 48 hours.

Authorities at the college are describing the death of Principal of the College Professor Richard Tambulasi as “shocking”.

Tambulasi died in the early hours of Sunday morning at the Zomba General Hospital a few days after testing positive for coronavirus.

“Professor Tambulasi has not been feeling well in the past three to four days. As an institution, we have lost a hard – working and bright professional,” said Samson Sajidu, Vice Principal for the College.

He said the late Tambulasi had over the years of his service with University of Malawi risen through the ranks from the position of a Lecturer.

Tambulasi once headed the department of Public Administration before he eventually became dean of faculty of Social Science.

The body of the late Tambulasi is being laid to rest at Ntaja in Machinga district.

Untill his death, late Tambulasi was also  Chairperson for the Malawi Institute of Management.

Benesi yakulasani inu a Tambulasi yachokera kuti?

Mphirimo, mphirimo, kudzabwera Napolo!

Our hospitals are a disaster and do not have world class equipment like ventilators that help very critically ill patients breath mechanically. The previous governments did not care about our hospitals because the ministers and others were being sent to India and South Africa for treatment. Here we are now with Covid-19 and they have no where to go but in the Bingu Stadium. Let’s put our hospitals in order. We never know the other viruses that would hit us in future. Tambulasi has gone at 44 and this is a disaster. RIP Prof. Richard Tambulasi.
