He was a hardworking man and that is why government relied on him. This is also the reason he was promoted from Traditional Authority to Senior Chief.
The chief was also good at local governance. He made sure he unified his subjects to participate in developmental activities. The news of his death has shocked the council and we are sad, we are mourning and will greatly miss him, said Nkasala.
