Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) says the late powerful Tumbuka chief of Rumphi, Chikulamayembe burial will be accorded a full military honours.

Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe of Rumphi:  President Mutharika has ordered his burial in military honours

The paramount chief died on November 29 at Mzuzu Central Hospital and would be interred Tuesday at his headquarters in Chilongozgi village in Bolero, Rumphi.

“His Excellency the President, Professor Arthur Peter Mutharija, has directed that the late paramount chief Chikulamayembe be accorded a burial with military honours,” says a statement from OPC signed by Cliff Chiunda.

President Mutharika will attend the funeral ceremony of  the chief who has had a “not quite cordial relationship” with the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

He is famous to have withdrawn his statement at a presidential rally when he endorsed Mutharika for the presidency in 2019 and later told people to vote in the election according to their own conscience.

Why and what is wrong with Mutharika, he doesn’t attend funeral ceremonies except the one of his brother Bingu? What is he afraid of? What keeps him busy to miss such functions of people of high calibre in society? Is this man Malawian or American?
