Veteran journalist Limbani Moya passed away Thursday at Mwaiwathu Private Hospital just days after his return from India where he had gone to seek treatment for a kidney condition.
Moya was discharged from hospital in India on 20 last month and arrived in Malawi on 12 this month. He was admitted to Mwaiwathu Hospital the same day.
Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra), where he worked as a Broadcasting Monitoring Officer, said they were expecting him to return to work after his treatment in India.
Macra Director of Broadcasting, Fegus Lipenga, said the institution will remember Moya for his fine analyses and reports that he used to edit in the department.
“When he joined Macra, he had some health problems but he was always working hard. We will continue treasuring the expertise that he brought from the print media and applied in the monitoring section,” Lipenga said.
Moya, who hailed from Lilongwe, worked for Times Group after joining the media institution in 1992 as a reporter before rising to the position of deputy chief reporter the same year.
In 2000, he attained the position of editor for Malawi News before leaving the institution in 2013.
His remains are expected to be laid to rest at HHI Cemetery in Blantyre today.
