MCP MP Billy Kanjira dies

Kanjira Banda

MP for Mchinji West Billy Kanjira

Malawi Congress Party Member of Parliament (MP) for Mchinji West constituency Billy Kanjira has died this morning in Lilongwe.

Kanjira collapsed in his car while at St Francis Catholic Church in Area 25 in the city. He was taken to Daeyang Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Member of Parliament for Mchinji South West Deus Gumba Banda also confirmed that Kanjira died at Daeyang Hospital after collapsing at church.

“I am now at Daeyang Hospital and they are yet to take the body to the mortuary, I’ll give you details later when I consult the family,” he said.

In Parliament on Friday, Kanjira accused some Members of Parliament of pocketing millions in bribes to pass the budget. This led to a verbal war with Deputy Speaker Esther Mcheka Chilenje who sent him out of the House.

He was told to return to the National Assembly on Monday.

His family is yet to announce burial arrangements.



  1. Death isn’t a happy ending in life. MHSRIP. The good is often entered with their bones. So let it be with him… is a great loss for us(Malawians).

  2. MHSRIP. But these comments coming are so biased. People have realised not to play with death and ha
    ve been condeming stupid comments thats good. But whynot condeming Prophet Liabunya who has declared Peter will not reach 2019. Despite being in disgreement with him some have openly declared and celebrated his death. Malawians; there is a lot of pretence as christians while not. Tiyeni nazoni.

  3. Pamene munthu wachoka munjira iyi zimakhala zowawa kwambiri pepani a MCP poluza munthu amene amathandizira mchipani chanu komanso akubanja pepani kwambiri MULUNGU akhale nanu pa nthawi ya chisoniyi may the spirit of our MP Rest In Iternal Peace.

  4. Don’t fear death coz its a necessary end. Whether you like it or not, don’t curse somebody here. We will all die.

  5. His death is so amazing and its beter to die in church if you are sin free. May his soul rest in Enternal peace. Sono poti nku Malawi alowetsapo ufiti kudalira zakumidima basi.

  6. Too Bad, M.H.S.R.I.P, Zambia Is Mourning wth You My Beloved Neighbors!!… Tidzafika Kumaliro Kumeneko Ndi atsogoleri athu a HH kuti tikalile Nawo Maliro amenewo.
