Mutharika promises to construct Chihana’s mausoleum

President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has promised to construct state-of-the-art Mausoleum for the country’s pro-democracy hero Chakufwa Tom Chihana.

Mutharika made the announcement on Thursday during the official launch of the construction work for Rumphi-Nyika-Chitipa Road at Bolero in Rumphi.
He said the the mausoleum will include a library that will house Chihana’s memorabilia.

“I knew Chihana back then, we once worked together outside this country and we have met several times when we were together in exile. As such I recognize the good works he has done for this country and hope every Malawian does.

“That’s why we are to construct a Mausoleum in honor of Tom Chakufwa Chihana at that same place he is resting. We have already talked to the Chihana family and soon the project will commerce,” said President Mutharika.

Chihana’s tiny grave in the city of Mzuzu behind Reserve Bank of Malawi remains a desolate, abandoned site despite earlier government promises to erect a mausoleum befitting the fallen trade union, human rights activist and served as the country’s second vice-president.

Chihana died in June 2006.
