Malawi: mourning one of their own

Malawian bloggers are still mourning one of their own, “A couple of days before the operation, he posted on his blog that he had just recovered from Malaria. My last comment to his blog was congratulating him for that recovery and mentioning that Malaria is no longer threat for under-five kids only since it is also killing adults like some local celebrities. Indeed, on 21st January Vic Kasinja of Joza and Taxina fame died of Malaria in Lilongwe.”
