BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-The leader of opposition Kondwani Nakhumwa has extended his sympathy to the family of Archbishop Tarcisius Ziyaye and the catholic community.

Writting on his Facebook page Nakhumwa said Ziyaye served the catholic church and the people of Malawi with distinction.

Nankhumwa who is also opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Vice President for Southern region said Ziyaye will always be remembered with his exceptional leadership in liturgical worship and his commitment to the ministerial formation.

“I also admire him for his personal courage and selfless contribution towards the fight against the notorious one-party dictatorship under the Malawi Congress Party,” he wrote.

However the leader of opposition said it was that courage coupled with genuine patriotism displayed by Archbishop Ziyaye in cohort with the other famous 1992 pastoral Letter that brought about political freedom and multiparty democracy in Malawi.

Ziyaye has died early hours of December 14, 2020 in Namibia as he was receiving medical treatment.
