Advisor of President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika, Dr. Hetherwick Ntaba was on Saturday chased at late mother to senior chief Lukwa burial ceremony in kasungu.
The who saga started when governor for the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Osward Chirwa snatched a microphone from Kasungu central MP (MCP) Amon Nkhata who wanted to announce to the mourners how much the MCP had given as condolence money.
Nkhata was not allowed to make the announcement and violence ensued.
The development did not please the angry community who reacted hashly by pelting stone at DPP officials who attended the funeral ceremony.
The pandemonium also forced the church members to abandon the funeral service.
Meanwhile family members have accused both parties involved in the fracas, saying the conduct is uncalled for.
