Pan-African Parliament commiserates with Malawi over death of Vice President Chilima

The President of the Pan-African Parliament (PAP), H.E. Chief Fortune Z. Charumbira has on behalf of the Bureau and the entire membership of the Pan African Parliament, commiserated with His Excellency, President Lazarus Chakwera, the family of the late Vice President, Hon. Saulos Klaus Chilima, and the people of the Republic of Malawi, following the untimely demise of Hon. Chilima, in an unfortunate helicopter accident on Monday 10th June 2024.

“In what will go down as a dark day not just for Malawi but the entire continent, Africa indeed lost a gallant son of the soil who sacrificed the comforts and opulence of a thriving career in the private sector to dedicate himself to a life of service as the Vice President of Malawi. A larger-than-life character who brought style and swagger into public office, the late Hon. Chilima’s meteoric rise to the second highest public office in Malawi, inspired hope among the youth and rekindled the zeal for youth participation and inclusion in the national governance framework.”

“Though the late Hon. Chilima has gone too soon, it is our hope that the people of Malawi will draw inspiration from his relatively brief but impactful life in public office, to rededicate themselves to the values of Ubuntu – “ I am because we are” – which the late Hon. Chilima held dear. May his dear departed soul rest in eternal peace” wrote H.E. Chief Charumbira.

Newsmen reported that a plane carrying Malawi’s Vice-President, Hon. Saulos Klaus Chilima and nine others crashed on Monday morning without survivors.
