  1. “Amb. Chilengi died on Tuesday 11th May, 2021 at 22:35 Hours at Güven Hospital in Ankara where he was receiving medical attention.”
    Why are we Africans always vague with such statements..why can you not tell us how long he was in hospital and what medical attention he was receiving for in Ankara.

  2. Tarino you are a lost f00I who has been brain washed by those whlte people who are parenting you there abroad. Because if you were a true African you would know that it is unafrican to ask or question a dead man’s ailment especially while people are still mourning. A f00I will travel abroad and forget where he comes from or who he is. A lost bab00n

  3. Covid in Turkey has become a problem.

    And the number of black people that die in developed countries is too high. One would think the level of care given to blacks is inadequate.

    Rest in peace Ambassador.

  4. Awe cha bipa. My sincere condolences to the family and govt. May they find comfort in God Lord Almighty.

  5. Maybe it’s unAfrican to ask what someone died of in Chipata, but its not so in Mongu, Livingstone or Solwezi. Ku Chip[ata olo mbeba yafa they refuse to disclose that uku kuli ndiyo for fear all will come and join in chewing the rat!

  7. This is a general observation of the trending discussion and nothing to do with the ambassadors death………

    People old enough will remember that before the ravages of hiv , it was common to state the cause of death……..

    Because of the stigma associated with hiv , no questions are asked of a death these days…

  10. @tikki, there are a lot of their children on scholarships there. Turkey offers a lot of scholarships for students all over the world. However, these are not publicized in Zambia. That is why we are there. If only we were there to copy Turkey’s health services ………..Your Excellency, rest in peace.

  11. You should try your best not to take ANYTHING trolls say seriously. NO matter how POORLY they behave, remember these people spend countless UNPRODUCTIVE hours trying to make people mad. They’re not WORTH your time of day.
