Nkusa-Nkhoma, who until her death was presenter for state controlled Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) died on Thursday after a long illness.

Speaking during the funeral ceremony, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera urged Malawians to be united all the time.

His remarks come at a time when Malawi is virtually in a lock down following the highly disputed tripartite elections.

Chakwera himself has refused to take up his position in parliament as Leader of Opposition, saying he does not recognize Peter Mutharika as President of Malawi.

Before the funeral ceremony, Chakwera happily chatted with Kondwani Nankhumwa, a powerful Cabinet Minister in the Mutharika administration and Leader of the House.

They exchanged a few jokes and stories and laughed together before the Malawi Congress Party leader took his seat at the funeral.

Nkusa-Nkhoma, 49, is survived by four children.

She was laid to rest at Zimchete village in Chief Mavwere’s area in Mchinji.

Her former husband Gospel Kazako of Zodiak Broadcasting Corporation with among the mourners and joined the deceased family.
