Indian Armed Forces are today set to mount a send off parade for Zambia Air Force -ZAF- Deputy Commander Major General Kapotwe Chintu who died after an illness last week on January 11, 2018 in Gurugram City, in the Indian State of Haryana.

A send- off parade will be mounted in his honour at the residence of Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga.

Foreign members of the diplomatic corps and defence advisers will join the bereaved family and Zambian diplomats accredited to India in paying last respects to Major General Chintu.

The plane carrying the late Deputy Commander leaves India on Tuesday morning and arrives in Zambia same day afternoon.

President Edgar Lungu swore-in Major General Chintu on October 4th, 2018 as Deputy Air Commander.

General Chintu joined the Zambia Airforce on June 22nd, 1980.

This is according to a statement released by First Secretary Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi, India, Bangwe Naviley.


    • They killed him after all. The most rascist and fascist people to black people then you go there. You’re all genie pigs for things they can’t door attempt on there own. An Indian is the worst person on this earth

  1. Please do a little bit of reporting. So did he go to India for treatment? How soon after he was sworn it did he fall sick? Or was he sick already? He is survived by whom?

  2. Half baked reporting …how did he die and what was he doing in India? You keep appointing officers and dropping them without reason…this is what happens when you have a crook for a commander in chief.

  3. Do a health report before appointments
    As this is waste of tax payers money.
    Find out any health concerns before
    Putting extra pressure on a sickly person.
