Mutharika refuses to use red carpet at Kudontoni funeral ceremony

President Peter Mutharika joined thousand of mourners on Friday in Salima where the remains of late Eckilen Kudontoni were interred but the Head of State President surprised the gathering when he refused to be accorded a red carpet treatment as is the case with all Presidential functions.

Events organisers had put the red carpet for the President but Mutharika refused, saying he wanted to pay tribute to his Democratic Progressive Party’s departed secretary general humbly.

And in his obituary, the visibly grief-stricken Mutharika praised the contributions that late Kudontoni made to his family, the Democratic Progressive Party and the nation during his whole political career.

“You dedicated your life to the party. You were a gentle force in the unity of the party. You were a wise counselor. And you were always ready to fight for our good cause. We fought together, we were teargassed together during those days in the wilderness,” eulogized the State President.
