Former United Party for National Development (UPND) Secretary General Winstone Chibwe has died. Mr Chibwe died yesterday in Lusaka.
Close family and party leadership have confirmed the death of Mr Chibwe. Mr Chibwe recently stepped down as UPND Secretary General on account of ill health.
In a message of condolences to the family, UPND president Hakainde Hichilema called on the members to remain united and pray that God comforts the family during the mourning period.
“Colleagues, it is with great difficulty and grief that I convey a message of condolences to Winston Chibwe’s Family,” Mr. Hichilema said.
Mr. Hichilema described Mr. Chibwe as a courageous and selfless person who stepped in to take up the position of secretary general when no one allegedly wanted to be associated with the party.
