Family and Nsanje residents differ on the choice of Gwanda’s final Resting Place ,malawi punch has learnt
There are conflicting views on the right place to bury the county’s political legend Late Gwanda Chakwamba who died on Monday afternoon at the Adventist hospital.
Most people who have spoken to Malawi Punch in Nsanje want Gwanda buried at the district headquarters and not Chinyanje as arranged by family members saying he was the pillar of nsanje as a whole.
The district’s tradition leaders have shared the same views saying late Chakwamba advised them to ensure that his burial takes place at district headquarters.
Senior Chief Malemia told Malawi Punch Tuesday afternoon that late Chakwamba who died at the age of 82 advised that his remains be buried at the district headquarters where his political career began.
Chief Malemia has however said they will respect the final decision of the family members.
On the other hand Traditional Authority Mlilima of Chikwawa wants Mbuya buried near Kamuzu.
