HH mourns Chibwe

Filed under: Latest News,Politics |


UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has epressed sadness at the untimely death of the party’s former Secretary General Winston Chibwe.

Chibwe died in Lusaka Thursday morning following an illness.  He had recently relinquished his position in the party due to ill health and was replaced by Stephen Katuka.

In a brief message posted on his facebook page, Hichilema described Chibwe as selfless and credited him with the growth of the party to the point of almost winning the January election.

“Colleagues, it is with great difficulty and grief that I convey a message of condolences to Winston Chibwe’s Family. Mr Chibwe is former Secretary General of UPND who stepped aside when his health failed him after the January 2015 elections,” he wrote.

“Mr Chibwe took over as SG at a time when everyone did not want to associate themselves with UPND. This the level of commitment and courage Winston exhibited. Winston grew the party from the time he took over as SG to the level we see the UPND today. He served the party selflessly and took on any assignment he saw fit if only to grow the party.

“UPND family, let us show up in numbers to support the bereaved family as we always do when faced with a situation that demands solidarity. The selflessness that Winston exhibited when he served the party including the act of paving way when his health failed him should be emulated by all members.

“My condolences to the family once more and I pray to God that he will grant you the comfort during this trying time.”
