The Human Rights Commission (HRC) has expressed sadness over the death of its former commissioner Lavu Mulimba.

HRC Director Florence Chibwesha said the late Mr. Mulimba provided guidance and made great contribution to the work of the commission in its formative stage.

In a statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka today, Ms. Chibwesha described the late Mr. Mulimba as a true champion of human rights and a great inspiration to the commission.

Ms. Chibwesha said Mr. Mulimba courageously led the commission in fulfilling its mandate of promoting and protecting fundamental freedoms and human rights of all people in the country.

She said the immense contribution of the late Mr. Mulimba to HRC’s development and provision of human rights services will forever be remembered.

The late Mr. Mulimba was one of the first distinguished Zambians appointed to serve as commissioners for the Human Rights Commission in April 1997 when the institution was established.

  1. Wow, there is Human Rights Commission in Zambia?

    Eulogy of the late Mr. Mulimba apart, what else has HRC achieved to date? If we exclude theirs prominent silent contribution to date, not much to talk about.

  2. Is he the same man that was a former Mayor of the City of Lusaka in 1970s, Chairman Local Government Service Commission 1974-1980, Minister of Labour in the 1980s, and later wanted to become Chief Sandwe of Nsenga people in petauke? Did he really succeed because Rupiah and Dr Mwanza wanted to block him? I even wondererd why having held all those high profile portifolios among many others for a long time he still wanted to be Chief. He even pertitioned parliament over Rupiah’s SI 32 of April 2010 that recognised Shaderick Malamula Zulu as Chief Sandwe.

    That aside, I liked him very much because he was affable and an eloquent speaker. Everytime he was on TV, he used to hold us his listeners spellbound. He went quite really!

    May His Soul Rest In Eternal Peace!
