A unifying figure, our leader and the man who was always giving us guidance is gone and will never be replaced. We are very sad. Those were the words from the late Sam Mpasu’s direct cousing Stanley Wasi.
According to Wasi, Mpasu was found dead today morning at his home in Mudi, Blantyre.
Wasi said he went to Mpasu’s house today morning to check on him after he got calls from Mpasu’s son who us based in the UK that his father was not picking up his calls.
“When I went there, the door was still locked. I had to peep through the window. I later I had to force the door open and that was when we found him,” Wasi said.
Born in 1945 and survived by six children, Mpasu will be buried in Khudzi Village, T/A Makwangwala in Ntcheu district “within this week” according to Wasi.
Meanwhile, the family is yet to come up a funeral arrangement programme because they are waiting for Mpasu’s children who are outside Malawi—they are expected to arrive in the country on Friday February 16, 2018.
