Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is mourning a member of the party who died in a car accident after he was flushed out of a moving vehicle on Sunday in Nkhotakota.
Nkhotakota police publicist William Kaponda confirmed the death of one person and five others who were injured seriously in the road accident as they were travelling to a political rally in Salima held by party president Lazarus Chakwera.
“The vehicle, a Scania lorry, had its side bonnets open whilst the vehicle was in motion, flushing out the deceased and the five others who were seriously injured,” said Kaponda.
The injured were taken to Salima District Hospital.
Chakwera is facing unprecedented political storm in Salima following rebel actions by Salima Central MP Felix Jumbe and Salima north west MP Jessie Kabwila.
Chakwera fired Jumbe as a party member and just reinstated Kabwila back into the party after a three month suspension.
However, she has been stripped of her position as party publicist.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
