Ralph Kasambara: Gone

There has been any explanation of his death with his closest friend and work college, Wapona Kita, saying he is still in shock.

However, uncle to the deceased Savious Kasambara, in confirming the death, hasn’t divulged more details, saying “It is a police case, so we are waiting to hear from them. He has died suddenly in Lilongwe so we will provide more details when we hear from the police on what has exactly happened.”

Meanwhile, tributes pour in for the late Ralph Kasambara, a distinguished lawyer and former Minister of Justice and Attorney General.

Lawyer Khumbo Soko, took to his Facebook page to honour Kasambara, whom he hailed as “a big legend in the legal circles and a brilliant lawyer”

Soko wrote: His research skills were incomparable and his ability to devise a winning litigation strategy was devastating. In our profession, the honour of ‘senior counsel’ is reserved for elite and distinguished lawyers. And he clearly earned his stripes.”

The Malawi Law Society’s honorary secretary, Gabriel Chembezi, conveyed his condolences via WhatsApp, reflecting the sentiment of the legal community at large.

He said : “Mr. Raphael Kasambara was an outstanding lawyer and selfless professional. Through the profession, he served the country in various ways, over the years serving as Malawi Law Society President, Attorney General, Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Law Lecturer, as well as running a successful law practice over the years.”

In a brief WhatsApp text his close associate Wapona Kita said: ” It’s so sad, I am lost for words.”
