11-26-2007 8:18 PM -- By: Chatonda Mtika,  From: Malawi  

I was toddler when you left Malawi. As I grew older I heard the gallant stories. Years later I saw a video of your trip (pre-independence) and the commotion it caused in London. It made me really proud. Malawi and indeed the whole pan-African movement has lost a truly great person. To the Chiume family, yayi, phepani nadi. Vyose mwa Ciuta.

My condolences to the family of Kanyama Chiume. He was a foresighted man whose vision of freedom for Malawi got stiffled.

There was nobody Banda feared more than Kanyama Chiume.

May his soul rest peacifully.

My Heart is with you Kwacha, Jessie, Bosi, Tasi, Nathan, Sonia and Miriam. 'KCC' was a good Father who gave it all to you with pride. A simple man with great character, wisdom and knowledge. Easy to talk to and very interesting to listen to. His stories still lingers, he made us laugh and imagine. His choice of words had a way in turning an old story into life. He had enormous pride for Africa particularly Malawi and Tanzania. He was a good storyteller. As he told a story and walked me along the shores of lake Nyasa, he once gave me a recipe on how to prepare a fish meal, he said; you simply need water and salt the fish will cook itself. I laughed! I will forever smile when I think of him, and always be thankful to have known this great father.

May he rest in peace, Dadi genda bwina, yatiwoningani.

Kanyama Chiume defined Malawian politics. Whether he was active or not, he provided the necessary checks and balances required in our emerging democracy, as the unofficial opposition "party" in exile. For this he will always be thankfully remembered as an icon of Malawian opposition politics.

To my friend Miriam and The Chiume's Family,

I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Thier love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.

Though some day we all have to part with those we love, they are not lost. We are always better for having loved.

Miriam and The chiume's family, i'm so sorry for the loss, i am wishing you all strength and comfort at this difficult time. Sometimes there are no perfect words but you're in my thoughts and prayers.

May God Rest his Soul in Eternal Peace. Amen.

My condolences to the family of Mzee Kanyama Chiume, I had a pleasure of spending a month with him in Nkata Bay in his holiday resort namely 'Banana Groove'. We use to talk alot about politics and his work, but of all things I can say he was a very proud dad, he loved each and everyone of his children. He loved you all regardless and he was glad that you all made a good life in America. May The good lord rest his soul in Peace. AMEN

Nimeguswa na kushtushwa na taarifa za msiba za mmoja wa mababa wa Afrika Mzee Kanyama Chiume.

Nilimfahamu mzee huyu kupitia katika maandishi ya historia. Akiwa mmoja wa waasisi wa mapambano ya ukombozi wa taifa lake, Malawi na hatimaye muasisi wa Vuguvugu la Afrika Moja (Pan Africanism).

Alikuwa shujaa wa ukombozi wa nchi yake na Bara lake la Afrika.

Nilikutana naye mwaka 1997 hapa Dar es Salaam na nikafanya naye mahojiano ya zaidi ya saa 3 nikiwa mwandishi wa habari. Nilifahamu mambo mengi kuhusu kile alichopigania na kukisimamia. Kwa hakika najivuna kwamba mimi ni mmoja wa wana familia yake kimawazo na kimatendo.

Daima atabakia kuwa mmoja wa walimu wangu wa masuala ya siasa, uzalendo, Uafrika na mpinzani mkubwa wa uonevu, rushwa na mambo yanayofanana na hayo.

Ni moja ya mifano adhimu ya viongozi wa Kiafrika. Nilimpenda akanipenda pia. Mungu ailaze pema roho yake. Naona fahari kupata fursa ya kumfahamu na kupata kukutana na mzee huyu. Afrika imepata pigo kubwa.

11-26-2007 8:38 AM -- By: Shouts M. Galang'anda Simeza,  From: Nyungwe, Karonga  

I only found stories about Kanyama. I was born in 1975, meanwhile Kanyama had already gone in exile.

Kanyama deserves the heroship in as far as his works in a fight for Malawi's freedom is concerned. only that he fought without support because that time Malawi was still young, and still in a deep sleep (I assume).

I am sorry for his demise.

May his soul rest in an eternal life.
