President Dr Lazarus Chakwera on Wednesday led Malawians in commemoration of martyrs day which falls on 3 March every year.

Malawians have joined hands in sorrowful memories of the heroes who suffered humiliations inorder to fight for freedom and independence of the country in 1959.

Not like the way it has been the trend where the remembrance ceremony has been taking place in Nkhata-Bay where there are graves and a memorial pillar of some fallen heroes, this year’s commemoration took place at Kamuzu Palace in the capital city of Lilongwe due to Covid-19 pandemic and was graced by the State President Lazarus Chakwera and his vice Saulos Chilima.

Making his remarks to mark the day, president Chakwera described 3rd March, 1959 as a day to remember and reflect on, for the uprising of the day was not only significant as a matter of history but also the birth of Malawi in 1964.

President Chakwera said uprising was the harvest of seeds of liberation that had started germinating immediately after 1891 when British Central Africa Protectorate was established. Chakwera mentioning heroes like John Chilembwe, George Mwase, the death of 11Malawians and the injury of 72 in Thyolo riots, Henry Chipembere, Kanyama Chiume and the Chisiza brothers for being in frontline to bring freedom, saying they were watering the seeds of liberation.

President Lazarus Chakwera added that the call made upon Kamuzu to come back and fight the federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland was to water the seeds of liberation for the country following the footsteps of Levi Mumba which saw the arrest of many including Manasseh Ernest Chakwera and deaths of some Malawians. Then president Chakwera said to honor all the fallen heroes, Malawians must build a New Malawi that will be a better Malawi for everyone.
