Pilato strengthens democracy, represents the best of Zambia


Pilato is an icon who strengthens democracy, represents the best of Zambia, and “challenges us, as human beings, to give expression to our highest ideals”, University of Zambia lecturer Sishuwa Sishuwa has observed.

In a series of tweets celebrating the birthday of musician Chama Fumba popularly known as Pilato which fell yesterday, Sishuwa hailed the multi-talented artist as an inspiration to many.

He said Fumba challenges people to embrace their responsibilities.

“Happy birthday Pilato and long may you run. You represent what is possible and the best of Zambia.

“Thank You for what you do to make things work, to strengthen democracy, to lead by example, and to challenge us, as human beings, to give expression to our highest ideals”, he wrote.

Sishuwa also praised Pilato as an icon in Zambia’s civil society movement.

“You are an icon in the civil society movement and an inspiration to many people. You champion causes larger than democracy and challenge us to embrace our human responsibilities.

“The reality is that individuals like you are very few. Please know that I treasure you, as many do”, Dr Sishuwa tweeted.

Meanwhile, Amnesty International regional director for Southern and Eastern Africa Deprose Muchena praised Pilato as a wonderful human being and principled young man.

“Happy birthday to a dear brother
@iampilato. A wonderful human being. Principled young man”, Muchena wrote in response to Sishuwa’s tweet.

International trade and investment leader Trevor Simumba who is also a Senior Trade Expert at the African Union Commission described Pilato as “a man of great courage and conviction”.

Fumba celebrated his birthday yesterday.


  1. Yeah, I like Pilato for his consistency, goes some way in defining somebody. PF were insulting him for his views during their time and I have seem New Doom praise singers equally dishing out unpalatables against him. Continue on that path Pilato.

  2. Mark 8
    36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

    God will judge both the living and the dead and cast Satan and his followers to an eternal punishment in a lake of fire. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked what a man sows the same will he reap. Repent! and save yourselves. A live dog is better than a dead lion. God does not desire that anyone should perish.

    God will judge

  3. Mark 4
    22 For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. 23 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”

  4. Tlisaiah 14

    he Fall of Lucifer
    12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
    O Lucifer, son of the morning!
    How you are cut down to the ground,
    You who weakened the nations!

    16 “Those who see you will gaze at you,
    And consider you, saying:
    ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
    Who shook kingdoms,
    17 Who made the world as a wilderness
    And destroyed its cities,
    Who did not open the house of his prisoners?’

  5. So you see, Satan has deceived you, who have sold your souls and made a vow of silence with him. He himself will present himself to God for judgment and then will you see that he deceived you and it’s too late because you stand condemned. His mission is simple ‘steal kill and destroy. He is not your friend, you have made your bed with a cobra. Save yourselves. ?t is not worth it.

  6. You know what, I had initially disliked Pilato over certain issues but now I take back my words. He is indeed a dear young person adding his voice to the enhancement of our democracy. Happy birthday Pilato

  7. Laura Miti is just a Job seeker plus attention seeker…now she got what she wanted so to hell with human rights…typical of a gold digging woman…no morals

  8. Pilato would make a better president than that Ukrainian comedian Welenskey or whatever his name is.
