Coronavirus claims life of prominent Catholic priest

A prominent Catholic priest has succumbed to  coronavirus (Covid-19).

Father Dr. Dominic Kazingatchire

The Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) says Father Dr. Dominic Kazingatchire of Dedza Diocese has died this morning.

ECM secretary general Father Henry Saindi says Father Kazingatchire died Monday morning at Adventist Hospital.

According to Father Saindi, the remains of Fr. Kazingatchire, who until his death was Director of Academic Affairs at the Catholic University of Malawi (CU), will be buried this afternoon in Dedza following Covid-19 preventive measures.

Meanwhile, Rosy Chinunda, who once served as President of Netball Association of Malawi, has died.

She died yesterday at Kamuzu Central Hospital in Lilongwe after a battle with pneumonia.

Chinunda was board member of the Malawi National Council of Sports and those we have spoken to say she will be missed for her charming personality.

Life can be cruel. The cream is going. I have heard lots of good things about this academician. But I have respect for catholics when it comes to setting and managing education standrds. CU will find equal replacement.
MHSRIP. May God reward u abundantly up there in heaven. Rest in eternal peace!
