FORMER Deputy Minister of Energy and Water Development, Lameck Chibombamilimo

Government has described the late former Deputy Minister of Energy, Lameck Chibombamilimo, as a great contributor to democracy.

Chief Government Spokesperson, Ronnie Shikapwasha, told journalists in Lusaka today that the Government was grieved about the death of Mr. Chibombamilimo, who was also Mpulungu MMD Member of Parliament.

Mr. Chibombamilimo 49, died in Apollo hospital in New Delhi, India this morning (around 02:00 hours) after suffering kidney complications.

He was evacuated to India last month where he was to undergo a kidney transplant.

“As government we are very grieved that one of our Members of Parliament has passed on. He was a great contributor to democracy,” he said.

Lieutenant General Shikapwasha said Government was making arrangements to have the late Mr. Chibombamilimo’s body, transported back to Zambia.

He said Government will work with Parliament for burial arrangements.

He has since conveyed condolences to the late Mr. Chibombamilimo’s family and the entire Mpulungu constituency.

And MMD Spokesperson, Dora Siliya also confirmed the death of Mr. Chibombamilimo and said the party will however give more details on the MPs death once more information was availed.

“Yes I can confirm to you that Mr. Chibombamilimo, who was our MP (MMD), has died this morning in India where he was admitted” she said.

She said the MMD as a party is saddened with the death of Mr. Chibombamilimo.

Ms. Siliya has since sent a message of condolences to the family of the late Mr. Chibombamilimo.

Mr. Chibombamilimo was elected to Parliament in 2006 under the MMD ticket and served as Provincial Minster for Northern Province and also as Energy Deputy Minister before he was fired.

  5. It is very sad that Chibombamilimo has passed on in India. I am surprised about ba MMD this time around the late was a hero of democracy when the same guys fired him unceremoniously at state house together with Shaka for expressing his democratic rights. These guys (MMD) are just strange guys. It could have been better if they did not say anything at all this time around. They depressed the man too much even when he was sick in India they continued haunting him. Now what are they telling us. Sindise mafala, be serious bane! MHSRIP.

  6. Oh no that is really sad news about Mr Chibombamilimo! But in the mean time those in govt should portray a picture that they liked him. The fellow MMD suckers kicked him around and had him fired consequently. M.S.R.I.P

  8. How can MMD be saddened when it’s own Acting President who is the head of the State said ”he,Chibombamilimo was of no use to the parté ”(party) in his own words,that acting President also said Chibombamilimo was only good for the The Post newspaper and he( the Acting President of MMD) also said he will ”follow Chibombamilimo to his constituency and sack him there too” so how come today he is hailed as a great democrat and person? who is fooling who or are some people foolong themselves!

  12. The rate at which the Zambian MPs are dying is quite alarming. It is quite sad that the first thought that came to my mind was ‘another bye election. Who get it …Pact or MMD?’ Zambia can’t afford all these costly bye-elections. I hope the raft constitution does address this issue somewhat.

  13. Is this the guy Siliya was saying was responding well to medication? it’s not news, what about other people who died when nurses went on strike? wasn’t that news enough? keep sending them abroad and will always be returned as cargoes. build your own hospital so that we don’t keep misapplying ndalama on people even are already heading to hell.

  14. “I am now the party president and if a member of Parliament talks nonsense I will follow him to the constituency, now I have sacked Shakafuswa and Chibombamilimo. They have to stand on the PF ticket or The Post ticket.

    “If The Post says you are a good minister, then you are a good minister to The Post and not a good minister for me,” Mr Banda told hundreds of cheering supporters at state house on 27 February 2009. Time will tell!

  16. #7 where have you got those results? It seems there is another Mpulungu known to yourself. PF was the too close to grab Mpulungu and thats why they wanted Lack to stand on PF if he was chased by MMD. Get the facts right before you rush to blog.

  17. so sad, i have been to this hospital. should i say its one of the best in India yet i believe there could be some scandal where organ transplants are concerned. my friend from ethiopia underwent the same operation but 3 days down the line, the Dr suddenly tells us that the kidney had been rejected. i dont know if the buddy is alive or not. i asked the dr if at all he had done compatibility tests to ensure non rejection of the kidney but i got no answer. i may be wrong but any way condolences to the chibombamilimo family. so another bye election. yangu pa zed uluse. ichipao chonse chikapwila ku ma elections. why dont we accept the truth that we need to disclose our health status than lyonse ukulaibepa ati ni private life ala. at the expense of the tax payer!

  18. #26 CHE , sorry about your friend. i agree with you entirely.Firstly let me express my condolences to the Chibombamilimo family. I lived in Delhi for 4 years and Apollo are a great hospital, but ku India kwaliba rife with organ scandals, so it could possibly be that too. But thats hardly conclusive. Anything could have happened. My own father died in delhi in december 2003 while awaiting a transplant.The life expentancy for people on renal dialysis is minimal at best unless a success transplant takes place. Medical Disclosure from people in high office should be looked at as the costs to the treasury and taxpayers is immense. But thats besides the point. We mourn the passing of another Zambian. MHSRIP.

  22. he he He MMD insulted this man and fired him from the party, he was only saved through a court injunction restraining the MMD from carryiing out that expulsion. RB fired him at state house and warned that he will follow him in his constituency and finish him. Well is this what RB meant?

    The PF re-organise yourselves this time and grab this seat off the sinking MMD. capitalise on their haunding the late which the MMD did wrongly and win all his former supporters. The man was persecuted by MMD and finished OFF as RB promised.

Only indoshi will celebrate your passing as all they now think about is a bye election. they are like bikiloni in that tv advert were instead of worrying about the dying of his friend difikoti is more worried about nkongole the deceased has left. even ba danny pule when he heard the passing of hubby to his current wife he exclaimed ati bafwa in excitment. Let us mourn this gentleman whatever his political pitifalls
