Zambia’s popular HIV/AIDS activist, prostate cancer campaigner and educator Dr Manasseh Phiri has passed away.
Dr Phiri was also a broadcaster who did not hide his love for music.
Many are taking to social media to mourn an iconic figure who used his profession to show love for his clients.
One Facebook commentator Henry Kabwe writes, ” It pains me to let the deaths of icons like Dr. Manasseh Phiri pass without national mourning or any semblance of it.
“Then, some political figures who were more of liabilities than contributors getting the honours. The law must be revisited. Rest in peace Dr. Phiri. You did to humanity what Jesus commanded us to do – serve with love.
“Yours was a infectious appearance on television. As a naturally gifted broadcaster, you visited many homes and those memories linger. Your profession, medicine, could probably have been picked by you because of the love of God in you for others but in all definitions, appearances and shapes, you were a broadcaster! Rest in peace.”
