Now that we’ve lost one at 2014 Lake of Stars: An elegy for Ufulu Kanyongolo

Death has never been good news. It does not have to. Death is sad news. And, it is even worse news when the death is least expected.

Now, the death of youthful Ufulu Kanyongolo – a law student at Chancellor College – at the just ended Lake of Stars festival in the shore district of Mangochi must be food for thought. It must be.

For now, we can put aside the rest of the mysteries sorrounding his death. The talk of him having one or two Carlsberg greens – or was it Castle Lager? – can still come later.

Worry, at least for now, should be on how the organizers of the Lake of Stars failed to take care of a life full energy at the event last week that, for the past few years, has attracted both local and international patrons.

And, Ufulu was not just any other ordinary young man. This was a young man who a few years from now would become a lawyer.

Now that Ufulu is gone; is it not high time that organisers of Lake of Stars International Festival started perfecting their services for future events so that no more lives are lost? How good is the security at the Lake of Stars? Are we going to be safe?

Are we not going to drown again next year?
