Lilongwe fish vendors in fishy business on body embalming chemicals

If you ever bought Chambo on the streets in Lilongwe, chances are that a toxic and dangerous chemical used in embalming dead bodies was used to preserve it.

The confiscated baby Chambo

The Malawi Bureau of Standards (MBS) are now looking for some vendors who sold Captain Charles Massi some fish but decided to present them to the MBS for tests.

Officials at MBS have confirmed traces of the chemical used to embalm dead bodies, in the fish.

Documentation from MBS says the fish vendors used the dangerous chemical to preserve the fish so that they could stay for days without going bad.

Officials from the MBS have since said they have launched a man hunt with the police to identify the vendors in a bid to find out how many fish they have since sold to people in Lilongwe.

Anybody can go to a pharmacy and pretend that they have lost a relative and they want to buy formaline solution for embalming bodies. Most mortuaries send to to fetch the formaline solution if the mortuary hospital has none. Pilferage will always be there. It is sad.

Let us Unite to bring down the DPP government whether it is led by an elderly or a 45-year old man, it will still be DPP. Chakwara is the answer and if he does not change things for the better let us bring him down even after one year in power. Malawi belongs to the people and not these thieves in parliament
