Death has been announced of Member of Parliament for Mchinji West Kanjira. But his sudden death has not only left many unanswered questions but also robbed the nation a greatdeal.
A political commentator who for obvious reasons will not be named has said that Malawi has not only lost a rare breed of a law maker in the fearless Kanjala, but also the important evidence that the deputy speaker Esther Mcheka Chilenje asked him to bring forth in the August House Monday afternoon.
On Friday the Parliamentarian did not relent to the deputy speaker’s threats during the afternoon debate by saying that he had evidence that once the budget is passed some ministers would pocket 15 million.
He even mentioned Kasaila that he will get K50 million and that he had evidence and ready to present it anywhere even at court.
He had a one to one argument with the deputy speaker who before sending him out lashed at the law maker that he had a personal vendetta against her.
“I exactly know why you are behaving like that I know it’s personal, I know the reasons and I can even expose you,” said the deputy speaker in a highly charged tone.
Probably Mchenka Chilenje will be bold enough to tell the nation what personal issues the two had.
Our source has said that Sunday March 13 2016, Kanjala picked his wife and a third born daughter for Church service, after which he wanted to go to Mchinji for a party meeting with Constituency leaders’ right there in Mchinji.
But at the Church, we understand that a guard manning the car park engaged with him in some sort of argument over the parking space.
“The wife and daughter left him behind and entered Church as he was relocating to another parking space, but just when he had parked the vehicle, he couldn’t get out and was discovered unconscious,” said a source who was at the Church.
MCP through the public relations office has said that Honourable Kanjala was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.
