Nuerologist and retired politician George Nga Mtafu, who died after sustaining injuries in a road accident in Blantyre on Tuesday, will be laid to rest at Ntonda Village in the outskirts of Blantyre City, his family has announced.
Family representative Jimmy Kalonga, speaking in an interview yesterday, said Mtafu’s body will be collected from College of Medicine (CoM) mortuary at 9:30am today with a stop-over at Sunnyside Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church for a church service.
He said Mtafu’s widow, Elvy, a commissioner at Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) who was in Egypt at the time of his death, arrived on Wednesday.
President Peter Mutharika has since offered condolences to the Mtafu family and the entire nation on the loss of Dr. Mtafu who until the time of his death was chief technical adviser in the Ministry of Health (MoH).
Born on Likoma Island on September 27 1949, Mtafu was trained as a neurosurgeon in Germany and returned home in the 1980s and was based at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre.
