  1. Which companies did he own? Did Rajan Mathani change his name? This one we have never heard about him. Is it the man behind Radian Stores that got rich through deals with the Ministry of Finance by swindling government workers?

    • Why is Mwamba still working as funeral ambassador? We thought he had been transferred to Ethiopia in national interest?

  2. This man looks 71 not 61, part of good journalism is picking up the phone and confirming the source of your news. Please tell us the correct age.

  3. Please learn how to write up these profiles ….every Zambian that grew up in the 80s, 90s at one point or another must have bought something from Radian Stores which started off as a small store unit at the Kalundwe Road junction on Freedom Way in Lusaka. Remember that Pressing Iron or Fan or cassette-playing boombox bought there whilst escorting an uncle or aunty or mother or father at payday to that shop.
    We Salute You …. Mr Patel…MHSRIP!!!

    • @JayJay that’s a good reminder.
      We demand a national morning.
      Unfortunately he can’t be buried at memorial Park, they will “burn” on a huge fire.

  4. Heaven rejoices at the death of this”Big”business man.Receiving money from poor people.Making excessive profits.Racketeering.Using legal loop holes to make a profit.And a host of financial maladies too many to menton.But the mercy of god he has been sent to purgatory.And with regular payments he could be promoted to heaven.Peter Carlos Hinds.

  7. The Bible talks about forgiveness.But will forgiveness bring back a brilliant son knocked of the road and killed by a drunk driver.It seems that forgiveness is a one way street with one of the parties not benifitting from this Biblical teaching.Peter Carlos Hinds.
