Despite the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic scare, a multitude that included Speaker of the National Assembly, Catherine Gotani Hara, Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda, Attorney General Chikosa Silungwe among other high profile people, paid last respects to Jaffu who was buried with full military honours at Mpondasi, in Mangochi.

The Vice-President said the death of Jaffu was a big loss not only to the bereaved family but to the nation at large.

Chilima said the late Jaffu’s dedication and commitment is worth emulating by those who want to build their careers.

He was a good man, gentle, sober,hardworking and sincere . I worked with him at Halls garage in the 80s . May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Loka Mauwa was burried without government involvement yet she once served as minister, MP and deputy executive of Admarc. But whether one is buried with military honours or not the good part of it is that God made them the same under the soil. They will all rot.
