Upcoming media personality Caristo Chitamfya Jr was given a befitting send-off by artistes and family members who turned up in droves at the Northmead Assemblies of God. Chitamfya who was better known from his disc jockeying days at popular QfM Radio Station where his drive time show drew a huge following was also the son of veteran media personality Caristo whose footprints at ZNBC remain a reference point in tourism journalism. Better known as Caristo Clear the 24-year old died in a road traffic accident last week sending the entertainment industry into shock. His father, Chitamfya cool-headedly cleared rumours that his son may have been involved in darker arts for glory and money. In a society obsessed with tying any little success to Satanism, Caristo Jr has been a victim of innuendos even in his death. “Do I choose to be bitter towards those who have chosen to malign my son? Or do I choose light? I choose light because light will always defeat darkness. Those of you who came to the house of morning in Woodlands at my in-laws house, did the house look like a house of richness?†he said. “A Benz is just a car and a means of transport. We need to reflect about the idea of richness as Zambians.†Among the notable artistes were Macky II, Brian Bwembya (B Flow) and other leading media personalities.     The post Caristo Clear Laid to Rest appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Succession wrangles have rocked Kasempa’s Nyoka area following the death of Sub Chief Nyoka with rival camps emerging. The dispute has set up members of the community against each other with rival camps heightening animosity toward each other. Following the death of sub-chief Nyoka, two rival groups from the same family have emerged claiming to be the rightful clan to inherit the thrown. Joseph Kibombwe, a resident in the area explains that the death of the sub-chief under Senior Chief Kasempa’s Chiefdom has brought confusion thereby creating fear among residents. He said the area is no longer peaceful and has been divided into two by rival family members chasing succession. Kibombwe has appealed to senior chief Kasempa to quickly step in and help provide direction before the village is divided further. “It’s a sad situation here, we are all living in fear because the two groups have become aggressive towards each other, the Chief hasn’t stepped in, we appeal to him to quickly move in and resolve the wrangles,†he said. Meanwhile, Kasempa District Commission Goodson Sansakuwa has confirmed that he is aware of the succession wrangles. He said the matter is being addressed and that the traditional leadership has been engaged to see how best the issue at hand can be resolved. Succession wrangles in chiefdoms have become hazards with loss of lives part of the possible endings. The post Dispute Erupts over Chief Nyoka Successor appeared first on Zambia Reports.
