The body of former Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Clement Chiwaya will be laid today at his home village in Mangochi.

Chiwaya shot himself dead on Thursday in the office of Clerk of Parliament Fiona Kalemba after getting fed-up with a bid to push for his benefits.

Formerly a banker, Chiwaya joined active politics in 2003 and won the Mangochi Central Constituency on UDF ticket in the 2004 General Elections. He served three five-year terms of office until 2019 when he announced his retirement from active politics.

Besides being legislator, he served in various capacities in the Cabinets of former presidents Bingu wa Mutharika and Peter Mutharika.

In Parliament, Chiwaya was among few critical voices active during both plenary and committee meetings.

He resigned from Bingu’s Cabinet on a matter of principle after the former president had ditched UDF—the party that sponsored his presidential.
