Breaking: George Nga Mtafu dead

860

News reaching Malawi24 indicates that Malawi renowned politician George Nga Mtafu has died.

Reports say Mtafu who a lot of people remember for the fuss he created in Parliament by calling his fellow legislators `agalu` (dogs) died some minutes ago at Mwaiwathu Hospital after his car reportedly hit a truck in the morning.

Mtafu, a doctor by profession was taken to the hospital where he died, reports say.

Goerge Mtafu

Mtafu: No more

Among other notable posts in the political arena, Mtafu worked with the United Democratic Front (UDF) was a strong critic to late President Bingu wa Mutharika.

He was the Member of Parliament for Likoma Island and commentators argue that he had then lost the post in 2009 for the confusion he caused in the national assembly.

In 2012 he hit the headlines again for snubbing a UDF convention held in Blantyre, saying it was rigged as positions were seeded in advance.

Dramatically, Mtafu, who was vying for the position of National Chairman, boycotted the polls at Comesa Hall at Chichiri and instead attended a Public Affairs Committee conference held across the city at Mount Soche Hotel.

UPDATE

The accident happened at Chatha Trading Center along Chileka road in Blantyre at 12:20pm Tuesday afternoon.

He was referred to Mwaiwathu Private Hospital in Blantyre for treatment where he later died.

“As government we are very saddened with the death of Dr Nga Ntafu. We have lost an accomplished neuro surgeon that has served in this region for many years. The death has been very untimely, we will live to remember Dr Ntafu due to his humour, his expertise; all of them will be missed,” said happie Mhango, Minister of Information.

Government will announce the burial arrangements when it has discussed with the family members about the date and place of burial.

Ntafu also served in different cabinet portfolios under former President Bakili Muluzi’s regime.

Some of the posts included Health Minister, Education Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister. Besides that, he was also a Member of Parliament for Likoma constituency until 2009.

  1. the guy never called mr speaker stupid abale,it was sumone in the background ,a fellow mp,it was just quote in the midst of his speech ,wena do ur research before u post nginiyi et.plizlol

  2. Who am I to keep? Nanenso I second that you admin of this page, your very stupid. Your timing isn’t right. In fact, that time he wasn’t referring to the Speaker but to a fellow MP. All in all, Dr. Ntafu was an asset to our mother Malawi. RIP doctor

  3. I think there is more to Dr Ntafu’s legacy than those remarks he made in parliament. This is the problem that arises when untrained ”journalists” try to do the job of some qualified journalists. Its high time you realise that you deal with people’s lives when you write your nonsense.

  4. jonh kaitano kufa ndikumwalira zimasiyana pat? Mbuz iwe bakha ngat ulibe chonena ongokhala bwanji? Kape iwe chitsilu

  5. You mean that’s the only contribution Ntafu rendered to our motherland? Shame on you admin, there’re no other things to put here commemorating his death with solidarity? You’re insane fool n a disgrace to our nation.

  6. Admin opepera ngati uyu sanaonekenso. Chitsiru chokumwa madzi ometera ndevu. I wonder if he has any sense of direction. Kumwalira ndi videoyi zikukhuzana pati? Of all that Late Dr George Nga Ntafu represents, this shit of goat only knows this illeravant piece? Shame on this riff raff. May the soul of our beloved doctor rest in peace.

  7. Politics is one arena where the majority only see the actors in a drama cast! The real Nga Mtafu Was a vert different, passionate, selfless and understanding person. Going by the positive eulogies flowing on Facebook one clearly sees how many lives he changed. People say we will miss you when we die, Malawi and southern Africa will surely miss Nga Mtafu!

  8. Nde mwapindulanji poika video yi? Kukonda kunena za anzanu komatu zanu mwakhalira zoti kuzitulutsa apa mukhonza kulakalaka kulowa pansi mwinanso kufa kumene… Ambuye akuoneni mwapadera..

  9. Those comments were caught out of context he wasn’t calling the speaker stupid rather an opponent who had irked him in the house. It was a reaction as he was about to conclude

  10. Nanga inu muzatha bwanji? Ndinu womvetsa chisoni mukuwona kuti vidio ithandizanji? Cholinga chanu ndi chiyani? Kulimbana ndi munthu womwalira? Mukuti u shasha? Zimvereni chisoni.

  11. I wonder as to the relevance of posting this negative Video. Not amused @ all, we are mourning losing a Public figure who made alot of positive contributions to the development of the country, the positives outweigh the negatives and it’s insane to post that Video during this period. Thumbs down!!!!!!

  12. Cholinga choikira video Yi ndi kumukumbutsa mulungu pa zimene anachita? Kwa ine waika video Yi apa akufanana ndi mbuzi kwabasi.
    Chifukwa sizikugwirizana ndi imfa yakeyi Ai.

  13. So sad munthu sangakhara wabwino pa zonse komabe dziko lamalawi lidzasowa tsogolo la bwino lomwe abombo athuwa analinalo lofuna kutukura dziko koma ife tinawakonda ndipo MULUNGU wawakondetsetsa may his soul rest in eternal.

  15. Malawi24 facebook Journalist come to me, let me teach you how to write obituaries. U are a disgrace to the world of journalism. The inclusion of the ‘agalu inu in this lead’ says it all

INUYO SIMUNACHIMWEPO? please ngati mumadana naye ndikale mukanakhala phe tikanamva kwina… mwandibhowa… am nt a politician koma imfa ilibe choice.. nde musamapange choncho ma admn..

  24. Malawi has lost a ‘”brainy neurosurgeon” who had proved beyond reasonable doubt that he was indispensable. May his soul rest in eternal peace though he never believed and appreciated God’s existence

  28. we all know mr mtafu a great doctor and a politician not as someone who caused fuss in parliament.malawi 24 pliz be professional otherwise, ‘ you are loosing tourch.

  29. Words alone can not express the level of greatness that God elevated you to. His time has now been defined, you’ve breathed your last. We hereby celebrate your life as the most accomplished and celebrated neuro-surgeon. May your soul rest in eternal peace.

  30. A great loss to the Nation. Despite being a politician, he was the only Neurosurgeon Malawi ever had and an entreprenuer. Dr Nga Mtafulira made Parliament vibrant and also pioneered multipartism after his release from Prison in 1991. How l wish he was in today’s Parliament. I, shall miss Dr Mtafu. May His Soul rest in Peace

  31. Dr Mtafu we have lost a great professional Doctor and politician .I enjoyed discussing politics with him and being my neba He was my Dad.we will miss your guidance .you did a good job for the Nation .May Your Soul Rest In Peace.

  41. Munthuyu anali dotolo mbambande. Katswiri wa surgery yovuta kwambiri. Wathandiza kupulumusa miyoyo ya anthu ambiri not only here in Malawi uyu. Zipatala zakunja zimamuitanitsa kuti akagwire ntchito kumeneko. And in politics he also played a great role holding ministrial and technocrat positions besides being MP for Likoma. He could sometimes entertain us with his rhetorical jokes and political rants like ‘the agalu inu’ which he duly admitted was emotional, was withdrawn and he apologised to his fellow mps. But should we heighten this jab to demonise him at the time of his demise? Insulting his soul thinking no one can track u on FB? God is ominipresent my frend. What about all that remarkable achievements he accomplished in his time? RIP Dr. We will mic u!!

  42. Pepani abale nose achizumulu ndi boma lalikoma poluza munthu wak ulu. Mzimu ya anthu akutisiya inumulungu ndinu mmaziwa kumene imapita koma mzimu wanga ntafu uwuse mmutendere RIP
