NewsNOWKIGALI (Malawi NewsNow) – Malawi Army is today sending a military plane to collect two bodies of wives of senior army officers who died in Kigali, Rwanda in a road accident on Thursday.

Malawi Army spokesman Paul Chiphwanya identified the two as spouses of Major Gracian Maluwa and Major Richard Chidzungu.
