MMD President Dr. Nevers Sekwila Mumba’s Tribute to late Dr. Kalombo Mwansa
*FAREWELL HON DR KALOMBO MWANSA*
Tribute by: Dr Nevers Sekwila Mumba,
New Hope Movement for Multiparty Democracy, MMD
March 15th 2020
This morning, we woke up to heart breaking news of the demise of one of Zambia’s best public servants, Dr Kalombo Mwansa. He represents the face of all that is honorable in public service. His dedication and loyalty to his country has been exceptional.
The Movement for Multi-party Democracy has lost one of the strongest pillars of our organization. He faithfully served his party both in government and outside government. He never once turned his back against the MMD even when it went into the opposition. A month ago, he accepted a new role as a senior adviser to the President of MMD. He provided great counsel to me and the party faithfully.
Dr Kalombo Mwansa served in several positions in the MMD government. He served as Minister of Foreign Affairs, Home Affairs, Minister of Defence and acted as President on several occasions. A man with great humility and a true friend to many.
On behalf of my wife Florence, the entire family of the Movement for Multi-party Democracy, we extend our deepest condolences to the Mwansa family on this irreplaceable loss. May the Lord God of all comfort surround the family with his grace and strength.
Fare well my dear Colleague, brother and friend.
Rest well in God’s loving arms. Shalom! Shalom!
