Chakwera pays tribute to Robson Watayachanga Chirwa


Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera has expressed shock over untimely death of Hon. Robson Chirwa.

Chirwa breathed his last around mid-day today at Lilongwe Private Clinic.

Writing on his official facebook page, Chakwera said the country has lost a great statesman who served Malawi with distinction for decades.

“I pray that the Lord will comfort his family with uncommon peace, as well as the knowledge that from their midst sprung a man whose life will forever shine as an exemplary beacon of light in our collective quest and struggle to bring forth a Malawi whose sons and daughters enjoy all the fruits of the liberty he and his generation fought for,” reads in part Chakwera’s statement.

Born on 29 October, 1931, Chirwa’s highs in his long political journey includes ‘warm seating’ Malawi State president’s seat alongside his counterparts the late Gwanda Chakuamba, and John Tembo.

The three performed presidential duties when Dr. Kamuzu Banda was incapacitated and admitted before being flown out to South Africa’s Garden City Clinic.

Chirwa was also one of the founders and pillars of the Mzimba Heritage Association; a grouping of all Ngoni’s under the Inkosi ya Makosi Mbelwa.
