Brian Chilala and Dr Velepi Mtonga and the family visited me.
They were in the country to celebrate the 50th Birthday of Chimwemwe Peter Mtonga, Chairman of the Catholic Community in South Africa and brother to my colleague and former Permanent Secretary Dr. Velepi Mtonga.
To imagine that both Chimwemwe and Brian Chilala are dead within a period of two weeks is extremely shocking.
Brian died in some freak accident along Lumumba road last night.
Brian, a music artist of the Kalindula genre, taught us so much with his lyrics commenting about our social lives.
Chimwemwe Mtonga, a consummate banker and community mobiliser…
My deepest condolonces to Dr. Velepi Mtonga for the sudden loss of her most beloved individuals in this short period.
May their Souls rest in Eternal Peace.
