MISA Malawi mourns Nkhotakota Community Radio Editor Thokozani Zulu
MISA Malawi is shocked and saddened with the death of journalist Thokozani Zulu of Nkhotakota Community Radio. Zulu passed on around 6:30 in the evening of Friday, February 22, 2019, at Nkhotakota District Hospital after a long illness.
Zulu was a dedicated MISA Malawi member and worked very hard for over 11 years to see Nkhotakota Community Radio grow. His hardworking spirit saw him rising from a junior reporter to an Editor of one of the most successful Community Radio Stations in Malawi.
Until his death, Zulu was News Editor for Nkhotakota Community Radio. He joined the Station in October 2007 as a News Reporter and Radio Presenter. He was promoted to the position of Sub Editor in 2012 before becoming an Editor in 2015.
According to Nkhotakota Radio Station Manager, Edward Kuwacha, burial will take place on Sunday, February 24, 2019 at Mgomba Village along Msulira-Kasungu Road-about 4 kilometres from Nkhotakota Boma.
MISA Malawi joins the general public, and the media fraternity in particular, in mourning Zulu. He has departed at a time Community Radios in the country and media in general need dedicated journalists of his calibre. His passion for the sector and MISA Malawi work will always be in our hearts.
Our condolences therefore go to Zulu’s family, colleagues and Nkhotakota Community Radio audience and partners. We pray for God’s strength during this trying moment.
May the soul of Thokozani Zulu rest in eternal peace.
