Member of Parliament (MP) for Lilongwe Msozi North, Highton Jiya who was a member of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has died in the early hours of 2 January, 2017.

Jiya: No more

MCP parliamentary Chief whip Lobin Lowe has confirmed about his death in an interview with Nyasa Times.

“Yes its true Honourable Jiya who was the MP for Lilongwe Misozi North died on Sunday at Mwayiwathu hospital in Blantyre as a party we will miss him because of his greater contributions he was making in Parliament especially on Land related matters because of his experience that he tapped after working at length at lands ministry,” said Lowe.

District Commissioner for Lilongwe Charles Makanga said Jiya died at Mwaiwathu hospital in Blantyre where he was receiving treatment.

“I have just received news of the death of honourable Jiya. I am yet to receive information surrounding his death and programme for his burial. His remains are still in Blantyre,” said Makanga.

Chairperson for the Social Welfare Committee of Parliament Alex Major who is also MP for Kasungu West said Jiya has died while receiving treatment for kidney failure.

“We are very saddened by the death of Honourable Jiya. He has died at Mwaiwathu hospital where he had been receiving treatment for a month.

The remains of late Jiya will be taken to Lilongwe for burial at his home village in Nathenje area in the district.

This is the second MP that MCP has lost after losing another one in Mchinji, Kanjira Banda but the seat was returned into MCP fold following the triumphant win of  Jepther Mwale.

Bola MCP not anamaujeni a DPP agalu akuba. Even Chilima says we must not elects mediocre leaders such as those in DPP. Chilima is tired of APM. Of course Chilima is himself not a leadership material but at least he has admitted that APM and his crooks are useless.
