  1. My heartfelt condolences to you all Luvale peapl as the entire va kachinyama.
    Our beloved senior chief has left a gap hence he has picked up the Lord’s last call as perpetually a routine to everyone.
    May the Lord God comfort the family.

  2. It’s a big loss to our country and a normal personal can not say seer 1 and his powers one is down already, that’s being unreasonable. We shall miss you our chief. rest in peace!!

  3. MHSRIEP. It would be helpful if more details were available such as how old he was and when became to the throne for historical reasons. I had visited the palace many years ago – actually 36 years ago. I wonder if that would have been the same chief up to now which I doubt very much from the picture given. Could someone in the know shed some light please.
