President Bingu wa Mutharika of Malawi has died, doctors and cabinet ministers have told the BBC, but the lack of a formal announcement is leading to widespread anxiety.

Mr Mutharika, 78, suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday and state media say he was flown to South Africa for treatment.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

Probably for the best. The way he'd been acting of late was not very beneficial to Malawi.  He was starting to turn into another Mugabe.  He lived a full live, died peacefully, and Malawi hopefully will be able to avoid becoming a basketcase.

Any sense of a possible coup seems to be passing. A section of the cabinet have tried to sideline the Vice President, but it seems clear that she will succeed to the Presidency.

Funny 'cause it's true:
Very few people seriously allow facts to affect their opinions.
