President Dr Lazarus Chakwera Announce The Death of the Vice President Dr Saulos Chilima

In his address to the nation, Chakwera said the wreckage of the plane that carried the Vice President and nine others has been found with no survivors.

President Chakwera conveyed his condolences to the families of those who have died in the crash, and the entire nation.

“I can only imagine how much pain and anguish you all must be having at this point in time,” the President said.

Chakwera described Chilima as a distinctive man of honour, a great father and husband, as well as a great patriot who has served the nation selflessly.

“I consider it one of my greatest honour to be deputised by him in the last four years,” he said.

Other individuals in the plane were Lucas Kapheni, Chisomo Chimaneni, Shanil Dzimbiri, Dan Kanyemba, Abdul Lapukeni, Colonel Sambalopa, Major Selemani and Major Aidin, whom the president described as great men and women of the nation and their death is a great loss to the people of Malawi.

Chakwera extended his heartfelt appreciation to the Malawi Defence Force and all parties involved in the search and rescue mission.

He also extended his gratitude to all former Heads of State for the support they have pledged during these trying times.
