UTM regional governor dies of coronavirus: Laid to rest

UTM Party  governor for the eastern region Alhaj Bernard Sande died on Wednesday after contracting the novel coronavirus and was laid to rest, according to a local medical official on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Sande: Dies
Sande: Laid to rest

State Vice President and UTM leader Saulos Chilima led the party in paying tribute to Sande, who was a maverick podium orator and helped to build party membership in the eastern region.

The former broadcaster had  “an absolute passion” for transformation politics, according to UTM.

Malawi continues to be ravaged by the virus pandemic as many people are succumbing to the Covid-19 with infections spreading.

The sharp rise in the number of cases has been attributed to the June 23 court-sanctioned presidential election re-run where thousands of Malawians ignored health measures and social distancing rules to attend political rallies.

Experts also blame people, who returned from foreign countries mainly from South Africa responsible for the spike in pandemic cases. As of July 12, more than 1,900 people arrived in the country form, South Africa.

It was a difficult choice for Malawians between two devils (DPP mafia gang) or Covad–19 which one to get rid first? And which one to fight against later? From recent revelations of terrible corruption, the choice to get rid of mafia government was the right one. If DPP MAFIA continued to govern millions of Malawians would eventually die of various causes because there would be no hospitals, no jobs, no food, no medicines and possibly 17.5 million Malawians living below the poverty line while senior DPP mafia and their families and relatives and friends lived in unprecedented wealth, going abroad… Read more »

Are you realy serious? Chakwera is completely clueless. He wanted power but has renegaded on his promises and does not have the kahunas to even effect a lockdown because he undermined Mutharika. Chili kunzako nkumati chigwire nyanga.

Totally agree. That was wrong choice for a poor country like Malawi. After ALL, what has REALLY changed? Things have got even worse ‘Family Cabibet’. Chakwera is clueless on COVID.
