Chakwera says Lucius’s legacy as a champion of the oppressed and a beacon of hope will forever inspire Malawi and beyond.

“His contributions to our culture and governance, including his service as a member of Parliament, will
be cherished and remembered,”he said.

The president has since sent the condolence message to the Banda family.

“To the Banda family, friends and all Malawians, we send our deepest
condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time,” he says.
