    A dark cloud is hoovering over mother Zambia following the tragic passing on of our humble talented brother Albert Silwimba aka “Alubusu”.

    Alubusu the social commentator may be gone but his music lives on because the young man sang from the bottom most part of his good heart.

    Eleanor Roosevelt once said and I quote – “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience”

    This is exactly what Alubusu stood for.

    Like once sang by Boyz to Men & Maria Carey;

    “I know you are shinning on all Zambians down from heaven, like so many friends we have lost along the way, & I know eventually we will be together, …. together …… one sweet day”

    This is the reality of life.

    He came on the stage of life and played his part, now the curtains are drawn and his chapter is closed. MHSRIEP

    Because people were so busy with the move (and experiencing the arrival from the new baby a little bit of over four weeks later), we didn’t soda open some of those boxes for quite a while. In basic fact, we didn’t even go to those cardboard boxes until the centre of the slide.
