    • It’s sad that when the man was the Bank Governor you were not yet born, nevertheless, spend some time looking at the History of Zambia’s Economy

      because you do not read widely. I cannot believe that you have never heard of him

  4. AS RIGHTLY PUT BY OUR HEAD OF STATE, IT IS WITH DEEP REGRET ABOUT MR. MULAISHO’S PASSING ON.

    DOMINIC AND RONALD PENZA (MHSRIEP) MADE SUCH A GOOD TEAM TO THE AMAZEMENT OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. IN FACT ZAMBIA BECAME A CONSULTANT ON HOW ECONOMIC GROWTH HAD PROGRESSED IN A SHORT TIME.

    HE WAS ZAMBIA’S GALLANT SON! MHSRIEP!

  5. ‘Therefore, his illustrious services will be deeply missed by all of us.’
    I don’t know why people say silly things when a person dies. How can you miss someone’s services when they were not serving? Dominic Mulaisho has been missed since the time he left public service. His death don’t change nothing.

    • You absolutely right. Its a written speech by some dumb presidential aide and the Prez mechanically runs through to look like they really care.

      The lesson to be learnt is that they should practice the things they will miss,- the good values and virtues- by his passing on and not mere rhetoric.

    • Don’t say that.
      Your Sata is 76 yrs old, just 3 years from that age you think enough-is-enough.

    • I agree with you Kelvin S the man was a worst economist. It is sad to note that his home village is so poor with no any major development to talk about. Infact the late Mulaisho was so ashamed to identify himself with is home village. A blame him for making a wost decision to aprove the construction of then Luangwa boys secondary school in an area far from a water source.The late Dominic Mulaisho comes from Kaunga area in Luangwa, Feira. Desipte holding such a key position in government the man failed to initiate any developmental project in his area. Just look at the Luangwa Feira road. The road is so bad to the extend that it takes almost 4 hours to cover a distance of 87km. His major contribution to Zambia can be seen in all the worst economical and political decisions KK used to make.

  7. Some names simply disappeared after the 1991 change of govt. Evans Willima, Leonard Chivunho, Dominic Mulaisho, zacks musonda, david matongo etc. Some of these old men were cast aside and suffered quitely for the economic ills of KK’s 2nd republic. Moral of this reminder is do your job diligently but do not take it as a wife (till death do us part). Always have a plan B. If critical things are not adding up or do not gel with your conscience master enough courage to QUIT BEFORE ITS TOO LATE. Having said that may the soul of Mr MULAISHO REST IN PEACE

    • I had the great honour of working with your father while he was BOZ Governor. He could be frustrating – the meetings that never came to an end, as he sought to develop his own staff – but of his intellect and integrity there could be no question. And I’ll always recall the disappointed look on his face when it became clear that I, a mere young Anglo, knew far less Shakespeare than he did. I was ambivalent about leaving Zambia as the end of my term approached but Mulaisho’s dismissal in early 1995, paying the price for taking a stand made it (sadly) easier to go.
