A communiqué from Mzuni Registrar’soffice dated January 6, 2020, Msiska died on his way to Blantyre where he was expected to receive specialist treatment at Mwaiwathu Private Hospital.

Speaking on behalf of President Peter Mutharika who is also Chancellor for Mzuzu University, Prof. John Saka said Msiska’s demise was disheartening because he was a man that had contributed a lot to the growth of the university.

“The University has lost a man who was selfless and very hardworking; this is the same man who had run the university for a good two years when the university had no vice chancellor.

“We are short of words, but all I can say is that he will be greatly missed and will always be part of the university’s great history,” said Saka.

Msiska was also a strong advocate of a group of Malawians that are fighting for Malawi to adopt federal system of government.

He was buried on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at his home village at Khwawa in Karonga district.

Minister of Education, Science and Technology William Susuwele Banda represented President Peter Mutharika at the ceremony.

Prof. Msiska joined Mzuni in May, 2007 as Director of the Centre for Open and Distance Learning from the University of Malawi’s Chancellor College and was appointed Mzuni Deputy Vice Chancellor in December, 2017.

At Chanco, he hated juniors to patronise the Senior Common room. The man was always drunk. I just hope he gave his life to Jesus before his demise. May the Lord comfort the deceased family
