“The National Statistical Office (NSO) has learnt with shock the death of Blessings Ng’ambi who was one of our 2018 Malawi Population and Housing Census Enumerators in Lilongwe City 1 Control Centre number 8 EA 011 in Area 49.
“However, at the time of his death, he was no longer a census enumerator. He resigned as census enumerator on Wednesday 5th September 2018 and handed over all census equipment and regalia to NSO authorities. The reason he gave to his Field Supervisor and Control Centre Supervisor was that he was diabetic and could not continue after working for two days,” reads in part the statement
