Chief Chikola mourned

Daily Nation Newspaper - - 12 NORTH-WESTERN NEWS -

By NA­TION REPORTER THE rul­ing Pa­tri­otic Front (PF) in North Western Prov­ince has de­scribed late Chief Chikola of the Lamba speak­ing peo­ple as a champion of democ­racy in his chief­dom.

PF provin­cial chair­per­son Jack­son Kungo told the Daily Na­tion in an in­ter­view yes­ter­day that the party will re­mem­ber the tra­di­tional leader for his wis­dom in a way he pro­moted demo­cratic prin­ci­ples in his chief­dom.

Mr Kungo said the late chief will also be re­mem­bered as an advocate of ru­ral de­vel­op­ment as he en­gaged govern­ment in his quest to at­tract in­vest­ment to his chief­dom.

‘’On be­half of the party in the prov­ince, I con­vey my deep­est con­do­lences to the peo­ple of Chikola and the en­tire Lamba Royal Es­tab­lish­ment,’’ Mr Kungo said.

The provin­cial chair­per­son de­scribed the late Chikola as a true states­man who served his peo­ple and the coun­try with dis­tinc­tion.

“I have no doubt in my mind that, this loss will be deeply felt not only by the Lamba Royal Es­tab­lish­ment in Mushin­damo but by mul­ti­tudes of Zam­bians both across the coun­try,’’ he said. The 73 year old tra­di­tional leader who as­cended to the throne in 2004 died on Sun­day at Sol­wezi gen­eral hos­pi­tal af­ter a short ill­ness and will be put to rest to­mor­row at his palace.
