The event will start with a prayer service at the United Christian Church Headquarters from9am, and thereafter, laying of wreaths at Kenani Farm Cemetery before proceeding to the residence for speeches.

Lemani, who according to the family was a maverick politician, a patriot, a great preacher and founding Bishop of the United Christian Church (UCC), died in 2005.

He was a compassionate and flamboyant soccer administrator of the “Sir Alf” fame and popularly known as ‘Malume’ on the local scene.

Dumbo was also influential politician and senior member of the former ruling United Democratic Front (UDF) and served in different ministerial portfolios during Dr Bakili Muluzi’s regime.

Lemani, who also served as Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, was generally an interesting character.

This picture provides answers to our current political climate: 1. Chilima is not a political novice. 2. DPP is a branch of UDF 3. UDF has not crossed any floor 4. Atupele and Saulos will be on the DPP presidential ticket in 2019. The problem is who will lead the ticket. 5. Saulos is a much more rounded politician as he started as a UDF young democrat (alongside paul mphwiyo, willie chimbalanga, grant kankhulungo, wales chikakwiya, masozi lemani, thom chiumya, ken ndanga, chikumbutso mtumodzi etc). 6.

I hope Chilima will attend the memorial, Dumbo Lemani was Chilima’s godfather. Dumbo helped Chilima in everything, I am also 101% sure that Dr Bakili Muluzi, the Former President of Malawi will b there. It was Dumbo Lemani who introduced Bingu wa Mutharika to Dr Bakili Muluzi when Bingu was in dire straits and was offered a job at RBM.
