Sata eulogises Chitimukulu
FLASHBACK: Paramount Chief Chitimukulu with his wife

President Sata has sent a message of condolences to the Bemba Royal Establishment following the death of His Royal Highness, Mwine Lubemba, Paramount Chief Chitimukulu the 37th.

Mr Sata said he learnt with great sadness the death of Mwine Lubemba, Paramount Chief Chitimukulu Chilufya Mwango Chitapankwa III at Lusaka’s University Teaching Hospital (UTH).

And the Bemba Royal Establishment spokesperson Bwalya Chiti confirmed the death of the paramount chief in an interview yesterday.

Mr Chiti said the traditional leader, who died on Tuesday at the age of 75, is survived by a wife, several children and grandchildren.

And President Sata has described the Chitimukulu as a true statesman who served his people and the country with distinction.

This is according to a statement released in Lusaka yesterday by the President’s special assistant for press and public relations George Chellah.

“I have no doubt in my mind that this loss will be deeply felt not only by the royal establishment at Mungwi but by multitudes of Zambians, both within the country and abroad.

“On behalf of the people and the Government of Zambia, I wish to extend my deepest condolences to the Bemba Royal Establishment for this deep loss. We pray that the Almighty God grants the royal family and the establishment fortitude and strength during this sad time,” the President said.

President Sata appealed to the Bemba Royal Establishment to promote peace and ensure harmony during the year-long period of mourning.

Ackson Chilufya Mwamba ascended the throne in 2007 and was officially recognised as Paramount Chief Chitimukulu on May 7, 2007 through Statutory Instrument No. 36 of 2007.

He became officially known as Chitimukulu Chilufya Mwango Chitapankwa III. Before he became Paramount Chief Chitimukulu, he served as Sub-chief Musa and Chief Mpepo of Mpika district.
