“The two accidents have also left many others injured and are currently admitted at nearby hospitals receiving treatment.
The President and the First Lady join all Malawians in expressing their condolences to the bereaved families and also wishing those injured a quick recovery,” says a September 10 release from the Ministry of Information.

The President, says the release, is assuring the bereaved and affected families that Government will do everything within its means to support them during this difficult time. It also invokes God and placates his to ‘bless and bring comfort to the bereaved and ease the pain of loss.’
