What a loss! I first met this man long before he joined the CFC. He used to go to a Baptist Church somewhere in Kawale or Chilinde. We became friends. After the late Major Manjolo, Brigadier Chinjala was the next soldier I came to know as a God fearing person. Very dedicated to serving man and God. May the Good Lord keep his family. May the Good Lord strengthen CFC members are this difficult hour. Tidzazindikira bwino patsogolo.
