      He has fought the good fight; It is for people like him, that we meek Zedians have been able to find some political courage, as such we should reflect & learn that fighting for our common cause, is a personal duty which we shouldn’t take lightly!

  3. Mr. Chipimo Sr had a gift of the garb. I used to be glued to the radio listening to him denouncing KK’s lunatic one party ‘participatory democracy’, mesmerised by his masterly command of the English language. What a loss! Condolences to the family.

  6. Condolences to the Chipimo family. Sadly more money has again been wasted in South Africa. I do’t know why we Zambians can’t learn that South Africa is not heaven. When are we gonna have our leaders dying within Zambia? I wish KK was still in power because he is the only one who has shown pride in our Zambian hospital system.
