Effie Mtika's funeral

It's with deep regret that we announce the death of our mother, Mrs. Effie Mtika, early morning of April 22, 2018.  Mrs. Effie Mtika started her career in Zambia together with our father Dickson Mtika. They returned to Malawi after being invited by their fellow Malawians at home, to join the struggle for freedom on the ground. Upon returning home Effie Mtika joined the civil service and went to study at University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. 

After graduating, she returned to Malawi and was made one of the first women Junior Cabinet Ministers where she served for several years. Throughout her career she served on different boards including MBC, Local Government Service Commission, and Malawi Red Cross, to mention but a few.

We are raising funds to travel to Mzimba in Malawi, with her body where she had always wanted to be buried. We want to thank all of you for your outpouring condolence messages, and words of encouragement . We ask God's blessings on you,  and thank for your prayers and monetory donations.
