UN honours Malawi fallen hero soldier: MDF to honour other 6

United Nations is today honouring a brave Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldier who was killed while saving the life of a Tanzanian soldier in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Private Chitete’s wife receives from the UN Secretary-General the medal on behalf of her fallen spouse. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
Awarding of the medal to Private Chancy Chitete of Malawi mark the first time the actions of a UN peacekeeper have been found to meet the standard set by Captain Diagne.

MDF spokesperson Paul Chiphwanya said the ceremony to honour private Chancy Chitete with a medal was underway in New York, US.

“The UN is honouring private Chitete because of his remarkable life. He was killed whilst saving the life of another soldier who was shot by rebels in the DRC,” said Chiphwanya.

The MDF spokesperson said widow to Chitete, Rachel Chitete Mwenechanya will receive the medal along with three relatives who arrived in New York on Thursday for the Friday function.

Chiphwanya said MDF will also honour six other soldiers who were killed in the Democratic Republic of Congo on the line of duty.

He said MDF will set the date and venue for the function.
