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 .
