Sad that role models like these should depart so early, who will motivate the youth. Rest in Peace Professor. We were proud and counted among the learned because of people like you.

South Africa just like Malawi is a war zone. Just to prove the point, The local Police will not find the criminals who killed him. They have so many cases in KZN to solve. They are killing each other for political positions. sooner than later Malawi will be in the same spot, if not already.
