Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika has died after doctors at Kamuzu Central Hospital failed to resuscitate him when he suffered a cardiac arrest earlier in the day.

The 78-year-old President was taken to the hospital in the capital Thursday morning after he reportedly collapsed.
“The President has died,” said a top government official who declined to be named.

First Lady Callista and three of Mutharika’s four children were at the hospital with the President. Others were his brother Peter and State House Chief of Staff Edward Sawerengera.

Health Minister Jean Kalirani and Police chief Peter Mukhito were also there.

His body was being taken to South Africa for further postmortem and preparation for burial.

The news will inevitably lead to speculation about Malawi’s political future but the Constitution says Vice President takes over until the next elections.

Wa Mutharika is a former World Bank official once heralded for his stewardship of a southern African country that is among the world’s poorest.

In recent years, he has been accused of trampling on democratic rights.

He first came to power in a 2004 election, and was overwhelmingly re-elected five years later. Elections are not due again in Malawi until 2014. @ Malawi Democrat.
