A former deputy speaker in Malawi on Thursday shot himself in the head inside parliament, where he had gone for a meeting, parliament said.
Clement Chiwaya, who was 50, killed himself inside the parliament building, where he had gone to discuss vehicle benefits entitled to him when he left office in 2019.
Police spokesperson James Kadadzera confirmed the incident but refused to give details until he had received a full report from investigators.
Parliament “regrets to inform the public that the former deputy speaker… committed suicide at the parliament building,” it said in a statement.
It said the incident was linked to “frustration with the implementation of his conditions of service.”
