Joyce Banda’s son succumbs to coronavirus

Former president Joyce Banda’s son has died on Wednesday of coronavirus disease ( Covid-19).

Geoff Banda dies of Covid-19

Geofrey Banda was admitted to Bingu National Stadium field hospital for Covid-19 four days ago.

Anorld Mnelemba, an aide to the former president says on his Facebook wall that the body of Banda will be buried today at Area 18 cemetery in Lilongwe.

His death came amid reports that the Bingu National Stadium field hospital had run out of oxygen supplies, health authorities have confirmed.

Spokesperson for ministry of Health said the problem has been caused by a mechanical fault at Industrial Gas company  in Lilongwe.

Malango said fresh oxygen supply had been ordered from Afrox Limited in Blantyre.

He said the situation had been occasioned by a rise in demand for oxygen at the facility.

The field hospital at Bingu National Stadium is four days old in operation and has 300 beds.

The oxygen from Blantyre will be transported by road as it is dangerous to transport it by air which some people suggested to government to use army helicopter.

You and I may keep on talking, what are we going to achieve? Let alone the family mourn Geouff, and mind your own business. What else do you want from Amai is this not enough. Abale pamene Joseph anali kwa Farawo Nkazi wa Pontifer anafuna kugona ndi mwanayu Joseph ndipo anamuneneza maboza anamangidwa koma Mulungu anli naye ndipo anakhala nkulu wa dziko la Aegupito. Omwewo munkawafukidza utsi wokhesa misozi aja vomerani ndithu ali pachiwongolero. Maliro tilire Joice Banda ndi mai athu.

Better warn the leadership of Industrial gases Company to transfer its office and plant to the capital city and make Blantyre a regional office. There is no way for the hospitals suffer in this way as we hear that oxygen finished at the field hospital.

Rest in peace Geoff. We spent two days together with Roy and Frank. I was impressed with your humility and down to earth approach to life.

The time JB make the COVID statement in Nkhatabay, we didn’t have the cases in Malawi. She even explained that it didn’t mean that COVID does not exist but God had favoured us from infections. Very clear statement that made sense then. Am not sure where you Cadets seem not to understand.

@Tonse, you’re saying that because those who were dying that time were not so dear and near to you.

Now that it has hit people whom you know and love its when you acknowledge its presence.

Thus how dunderheads like you think.

Rest in Peace George.

The death of Geoff Kachale has got nothing to do with the denials JB and SKC made during their campaign about there not being Covid in Malawi. Geoff had a family and we should not be so callous as not to be sympathetic to them over his death. Remember Covid is a killer and anyone of us could be next. JB will have to answer to the people of Malawi who believed her as will SKC who both knew better.
