Nankhumwa identified one of the deceased as Adam Kaunga from Chilipa in Mangochi who has already been laid to rest.
The other victim whose body is at a mortuary in South Africa, also from Mangochi is yet to be identified.
Meanwhile six buses carrying 390 people are expected to arrive today in Blantyre where they will among others be received by Nankhumwa and Minister of Home Affairs Atupele Muluzi.
