  2. Though a sad development I must add that driving in Zambia is very poor. You will find a guy overtaking just a few yards before a speed hump. You wonder what’s the use of that overtake when he’s stopping just a few seconds later.

  4. Sad indeed. Yet the location referred to is downtown where people ought to drive between 30 and 60 kph. News should have been that headlamps were broken, not death. Let’s drive responsively

  5. Brian Chilala used to speak fluent nsenga, he was a giant in his own right. It’s sad news because Brian belonged to the crop of musicians of yesterday year. He always have what his audience wanted. After all we are all just mere mortals. Rest in peace brother

  10. njimbu, ignorance indeed. You didn’t even know Brian in anyway. He was more Easterner than Tonga, having an easterner mother. These stereo type judgement based on tribe is what people live on now. Scared of the unknown! Anyway, they say, ‘No one throws stones at fruitless trees’. People always talk about the other person because they don’t possess qualities they other person possesses. Find something to do. Hate is poison even to self. Try love!

  12. I was mixing his name up with Brian Chengala – also a rasta-hairdo musician of the late 80’s based in Lusaka.
    thanks to those who have clarified his age – i was / am trying to locate him in my memory.

  13. To be honest people, at 23:30hrs many of us would not drive at 60km. Our brother has gone. Its just an accident. We pray that he may rest in eternal peace
