Former President Rupiah Banda’s brother in-law, Moses Chilongo, has died. He was 36.

This is according to a statement released to the media by his deputy administrative assistant Kennedy Limwanya.

Mr Chilongo, who was former first lady Thandiwe Banda’s younger brother, died in Kitwe yesterday after an illness.

The funeral is being held at house number 4844 Almalik Street, Riverside, Kitwe. The late Mr Chilongo is survived by a wife.


    • Your Excellency President Rupiah Banda (Rtd), many of us stand with your family in this loss of a dear one. May the family find Grace in bearing this painful loss. As rational actors guided by strong virtues of the ecclesiastics, we rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. With wisdom and love we detest and dread all evil, and love and delight in whatever is kind and useful. We know that always we must not only do that which is good, but we must cleave to it above and beyond. All our duty towards one another is summed up in one word, unconditional “love”.

    • LT, you should stop reporting rubbish. This country is big, please, reports what happening around the nation.

    • At 36, he was a grand-child-in-law, not brother in law, LT. I know Rupiah loves to hang around with kids. Just look at his wife!

    • Yes it is. RB is a former President of this Country and continues to draw a Government salary with government paid support staff.

  1. Yes it’s news worthy. Your Excellency, may the Good Lord comfort you and your beloved family. We will keep you and Thandiwe in our prayers.

    Currently the only thing that is not news worthy is the Lamentations of one Mmembe and his Past news. As cartel is crumbling finally, the Past and its editor have become just about the most boring news today. I don’t know why Mmembe thinks that we should be crying with him in his self inflicted troubles whose time has to pass no matter how much he cries, we are not interested. Oh yes only thing we are interested in is our K14billion (sorry, unrebased but sounds better to mention the original numbers ……..kikikikiki, awe mwe!)

  2. Ooh! Where is fairness here? He needs a day of national mourning like Willie Nsanda. Ummm by the way what is retirement age? This in-law was just 36 almost halfway to retirement age. What a joke, cam only happen in developed countries with proper healthcare and standard of living. National day of morning please!

  3. Mrs Thandiwe Chilongo Banda in 2011 during campany she was 28yrs and this is 2015 so to me the late Moses Chilongo @ 36yrs was her ‘BIG BRO’ not the way ba LT has reported.
