Regina Chiluba

Widow of Zambia’s Second President Frederick Chiluba, Regina Chifunda Chiluba has died.

 

Family sources have confirmed that Regina Chiluba died at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) at 1230hrs on Sunday afternoon.

 

Government evacuated Mrs. Regina Chiluba to Apollo Hospital in hyderabad in India, in November 2016 reportedly battling cancer.

 

She however came back last week and was immediately admitted to the University Teaching Hospital as her condition was deemed terminal.

 

In 2002,  the Ndola High Court divorced her marriage to Edward Mwanza.

 

She later officially married Frederick Chiluba.

 

At this stage Chiluba had divorced his wife of many years, Vera Tembo.

 

Regina spent most of her life with Chiluba in courts of law as Chiluba and herself were dragged into court on allegations of corruption by the Mwanawasa government.

 

In 2009, she was jailed by the Lusaka Magistrate for allegedly receiving government property but was later acquitted by the Lusaka High Court.

 

Chiluba died in 2010 from a heart condition he had suffered since 2006.

 

Regina is survived by her children Bwalya, Malama and Mando.

 

Funeral arrangements will be announced later.

  2. For whatever good she did for her family and the country, May Her Soul Rest In Eternal Peace. We’ll all be going the same direction whether we like it or not. All those plunderers out there TAKE NOTE. No amount of plundering shall keep you from reuniting with the soil, when your time comes. Six feet under and alone in your coffin. That’s life. Go with a clear conscious when you take your last breath.
