The death of Malawi's president

A sort-of first hand account of the recent death of Malawi's president.

For those unfamiliar with it, Malawi is a poor but peaceful country in southern Africa perhaps best known for its exports of tobacco and of data for use in papers by development economists.

Addendum: a new president has been sworn in, and it is the one who was supposed to be sworn in according to the Malawian constitution. Seems like that must be good.
