Nollah Malolo, former TNM sponsorship executive, was buried on Tuesday at Area 18 Cemetery in the capital, Lilongwe.
Malolo died on Monday at Mwaiwathu Private Hospital in Blantyre after a short illness. She will be remembered for the role she played in promoting the TNM brand in football.
She was the main linkage between TNM, as the sponsors, and Super League of Malawi (Sulom), especially on the part of marketing and advertising during league games.
On Monday afternoon, the Blantyre soccer fraternity led by Big Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire and Patrick Chisale from Sulom converged on College of Medicine mortuary to pay their last respects.
The hearse carrying Malolo’s body left College of Medicine mortuary for Lilongwe at exactly 3pm.
Mkandawire described the death of Malolo as a big loss. He said the nation has been robbed of a hard-working woman who could have helped in the development of football in the country.
“Nollah was so unique judging from the work she did. She was always present during games to make sure that everything goes on smoothly,” said Mkandawire.
Zodiak Radio Station sports reporter Mike Bango, who worked closely with Nollah on TNM Soccer Showprogramme aired on Mondays, said sports journalists will remember Malolo for her great contribution to the Super League.
Bobby Kabango of Nation Publications Limited said he was extremely shocked by her untimely death because he cracked some jokes with her on Sunday evening when she called him to say that she was not feeling well.
“The next thing l heard the same evening was that Nollah was no more. May her soul rest in peace,” said Kabango.
The last soccer activity for Nollah was at Civo Stadium during the final 2012-2013 TNM Super League game between Silver Strikers and Mighty Wanderers.
