Mte Wambali killed by Covid-19

Malawi’s legendary musician Mtebeti Wambali Mkandawire on Sunday  passed away from complications of Covid-19.

He was taken for burial on the same day at Area 18 cemetery in Lilongwe.

Wambali was hailed as music evangelist and activist. He won several awards and recognition for his work but he declined an honorary doctorate from  Cyprus International Institute of Texas for personal reasons.

“That was a measure of the man,” remarked University of Malawi’s Chancellor College dean of law Sunduzwayo Madise .

Cyprus International Institute of Texas has been conferring both academic and honorary papers to Malawians. It is regarded as the diploma mill.

Malawi has recently seen a surge in Covid-19 cases.

Covid-19 is the disease caused by coronavirus.

Has the stadium got any/adequate supply of oxygen? Can a journalist give the nation a low down on the adequacy of oxygen in our hospitals and how many patients are needlessly dying from lack of oxygen?

Loss of great music icon. A rare breed of Malawian Musician who genuinely enjoyed both local and international appeal and positive reviews. A great artist, performer, composer, singer and songwriter. Above all else a believer. Your music transcended all forms of identities and was uplifting. Rest well mtebeti

This is very sad news. Wambali was greatly talented, served his Saviour, remained humble. I once visited his home. Such a generous man

When such deaths occur , it always pricks me when I remember what Saulosi chilima was telling us that there is no Coronavirus and that people can be hugging each other. I remember Mayi Mtila Banda who preached that koronoa kulibe And fherefore no need for lockdown .We listener to them as our leaders . Koma lero zikuoneka kuti anthu wa amatinamiza. Lero anthu tikufa ngati nkhuku. Saluosi please talk to us. Mayi Joyce Banda please address us

Killed by stupid and poor decisions of the Chakwera/Tonse alliance on Covid and the incompetence of judge Kenyatta Nyirenda in cahoots with the greed of HRDC.Covid is 98% preventable. The leadership let the people down. This could have been prevented and so many lives saved but greed took over
