A senior police officer has died after contracting Covid-19 in Chikwawa as President Lazarus Chakwera conceded of laxity in the fight against the infections in the country.

The body of cop

Police have confirmed the death of the Officer-in-Charge of Mitole Police Mobile service in Chikwawa, Superintendent Bernard Nkhoma due to Covid-19.

His body is at Kasinthula Covid-19 treatment unit as authorities are liaising on his burial.

Director of Health and Social Services, Dr Stalin Zinkanda says Nkhoma died last evening.

This is the first COVID-19 death in the district with six new cases as cumulative statistics hang at 61.

Yesterday the country buried a broadcasting icon and song bird Maria Chidzanja Nkhoma as well as a reputable lecturer at Mzuzu university as three powerful cabinet ministers; Sidik Mia, Lingson Belekanyama, Roy Kachale and Rashy Gaffar are battling the Covid-19 infection in self isolation.

What a very well dedicated senior officer he was. The name is actually Brenard. I worked under his command at C’ Company in Lilongwe. Fearless during public order management. The first officer to discharge a canister on July 20 at Lilongwe community ground aboard the black riot vehicle. The state has surely lost a man in him

And the Black riot vehicle was torched by angry protesters. Right?

I said this on one article and I will keep saying it. There is nothing newsworthy about these deaths. Covid-19 affects everyone and it is good to treat berraved families with dignity.

Stupid comment ever ! What should Chilima and joyce banda do now that covid is all over the world ?
Akulu , chakula ndi nsanje. Sometimes learn to keep quiet instead of portraying your high level of stupidity especially on forums like nyasatimes.
Anyway sanitize your ass so that you don’t pollute us with your stupid way of thinking.
Muchila , kwatsala patyoko !

Chilima and Joyce Banda said there is no Covid 19. If they can come out and tell people the truth, can be helpful because some followers are still believing what they said.
