  5. Friends and Relatives , it is indeed heart breaking to read about the death of Edford Mutuma my young man from Chiwoma Chibwika in Mwinilunga. A vibrate USA trained young leader who was amongest the few young Zambian Leaders running corporate entities in a mature manner . When i saw the job Advert for Executive Director at PPAZ in Noveber last year i got worried and asked my self as to what had happened to him but was happy when i came to know that he had actually resigned to join IPAS as CEO. Before i could meet him to congratulate him on his move, Iam reading about his death. Uncle Kayanga and Eddie Mutuma and all family members am heart broken I can not hold my tears in my Hotel Room in France reading about this sadden death. It pains me more that am this far and not even able to…

  6. I will never forget your hospitality during my last visit to Zambia. What a great team we had during our youth days at Planned Parenthood. Lots of sweet memories, including our time together in Botswana.

  7. Edford was a young and brilliant professional who executed his duties with diligence and great dignity. He leaves behind a very young family. May the God of Mercy and Compassion look with favour up them. May he rest in eternal peace.

    • Typical of you Zambians to ask such silly questions. The only reason you attend funerals and body viewing is to see ‘ifyo bawile’ before he passed on so you can make stup!d conclusions.
