Photo Gallery: Helen Singh finally rests

Hellen Signh

Thousands of Malawians today thronged the Comesa Hall in Blantyre where they paid their last respects to  politician cum businesswoman Helen Singh who died of lung cancer three days ago.

She died aged 64.

Singh led the United Independence Party (UIP) in the 2014 elections.

Her body has since been cremated at Sikh Temple.

Here are some of the pictures our Blantyre based reporter Andrew Chilapondwa shot.

  1. Cremation is done by Hindus and Budas who worship Idois, and they don’t believe the existance of God of Abraham, or is cremation also bibilical?……the late Madam Ellen Singh was a Christian!

  2. Process yowotcha inachitika komwe kunapita a ku family okha. We cant post such photos here. The photos we have posted are those from the memorial service at Comesa hall, The body was later taken for cremation after the service.

  3. Sometimes I wonder if some people understand things. Why are you busy talking down Malawi 24 on misinforming u on kuwotcha thupi la malemu? If you are being misinformed about the news why can’t you go to those media’s you think they can’t misinform you?

    In the Malawi 24 comment above it clearly states that the body was cremated but only family members are allowed to such ritual, hence no photos allowed. Am sure even if you visit/listen to various media houses they will tell u the same thing.

    Please, sometimes its best to find out more about things before you start talking unfair judgements.

    Thank you

    1. Sanali mmwenye.She was a coloured. Her mother was from Ntcheu and her father was a white man,and she was a Christian not a Hindu.Only her late husband was from India

    2. And cremation has no religion, it can be a personal wish.Ndipo zimachitika ndithu here in Malawi.She is not the first one to have her body cremated.

  5. A pacesetter,
    Humble servant who realy stood for the poor mass,
    Selfless politician,
    Symbol of hope to many….
    May her soul rest in peace.
    Oh, Abusa…….
