What an obituary for Jaffu! These personalities have a past place of birth how they survived during their school days since they were not brought up on milkscones What their relationship has been with the likes of CT Kadzamira Bwana JZU today could’ve been a moment to mourn these heroes as people who played a role in construction the Kamuzu dictatorship

No,Mr Jaffu was a distinguished gentleman, he was not scandalous. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Rest in Peace. Mr Jaffu. I hope you were not as rich as Mukhito who is making headlines for stealing from Malawians.
