Covid-19 kills two Malawi legislators

Two ruling Tonse Alliance legislators have today died of Covid-19.

People’s Party  MP John Chikalimba  killed by Covid-19

Parliament says Ntchisi North parliamentarian Jacqueline Chikuta and John Chikalimba who represented Zomba Changalume constituency in parliament have  succumbed to the virus  disease.

“The late Hon. Chikuta has passed away today, 27th January 2021 at Mtengowanthenga Hospital in  Mponela where she was undergoing treatment,” says a statement from parliament.

The statement says Chikalimba has also passed away at Zomba Central Hospital in  Zomba where he  was receiving treatment.

The death of the members of parliament follows the death of two powerful cabinet ministers; Sidik Mia and Lingson Belekanyama.

Chiuta won her seat as an independent MP but joined Malawi Congress Party (MCP) while Chikalimba was People’s Party (PP) member.

MHSRIP. . One thing I would like to question our learned doctors and legislators is whether they took time to think, analyse the effect the masks have on our respiratory system. I am to a certain extent worried that the masks could contribute to the higher rate of deaths which are related to the corona pandemic. I feel that we are breathing more co2 as opposed to pure oxygen. Please find time urgently to revisit the mask directives after a analysing critically it effect on mankind. We could be dying to indirect suffocation as opposed to the virus.

A good suggestion. More research is needed otherwise it is difficult to put on the mask for a period longer than 30 mins.We are in trouble really.

I don’t see the connection between breathing in carbon dioxide and the use of mask. Actually mask does also assist in filtering out particles including sand, etc from being breathed in.

I never agreed with this whole mask culture to start with, but after contracting the virus myself, I prefer to be safe and secure from any more likely harm. I use the mask every where I go, the masks might have some factors that slowly work against our health, that is if you have a medical condition, but to some extent the masks also protect us from contracting the virus itself. The other best possible way is to just simply self isolate in your home and only go out for essentials, all in all this is to protect your life… Read more »

Koma ndiye ndinu anzerutu kuposa Dr. Fauci. Anthu onse pa dziko la pansi angalimbikire ntunda wopanda madzi popanda wina kudzudzula? Dr. Fauci mumamudziwa? Tamuuzeni zotetezi. People, especially health workers have not started wearing these masks following the coronavirus outbreak. Your concern was already clinically addressed.

God-fearing pussy, this is not the time of politics or pointing fingers at anyone. Malawians wanted to first remove your Peter Matanyula Mutharika from office coz he was a worst of time to b a President of beloved Malaw. Now he is out we r very happy more especially me as one of the Llomwe people, he was a big disgrace to my tribe.

I for one have never depended on a person and I shall never. I depend on my living God. I have no reason to celebrate a particular regime. So, whether there is APM or Chakwera my life remains the same. Even it could be any other person, my God will be the same. Ndapita.
