    We shall dearly miss him, we are comforted that he ran his course faithfully, it is encouraging that as pilgrimages on this planet we meet saints like Mr Chibuta , i will fail terribly by tyring to eulogise him. May his Soul Rest In Peace.

    My condolences go to the family of a hardworking and faithful elder and also to the Church at Kabwata Baptist. I received the death of Elder Chibuta through my dear brother Peter Chibichabo with a great sense of sorrow. If I where asked to describe him in anyway it might be but very difficult in the sense that he appeared to me to have quite a lot of good qualities firstly as a human being in society and yet secondly, as a quality and practical Christian whose christian values and living has affected and effected many a life in a positive way. If we sit and look at these qualities one by one certainly we will perhaps lose count. His lifestyle is indeed worthy emulating. However, one comforting thing above all others, is that he faithfully laboured in the vineyard of our Lord and died in the Lord. Indeed the words of a Psalmist are truly comforting even in the midst of such great loss and sorrow when they say “precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saint”

    Our thoughts and our prayers are with the Chibutas and KBC on the loss of this gallant soldier of the Lord. Though sad, we are filled with joy that the brother has run the race and finished the course and now has gone home to glory where there is no suffering.

    Just got the news of brother Chibuta’s passing to glory. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of a saint. He fought the good fight and run the race with much grace and humility. May the Lord comfort and grant peace to the family. Oh that we might emulate him in serving the Lord until we breath our last breath. Just last week our Pastor at my Church was speaking of the fact that what we have here on earth are pitched tents signifying the temporal nature of our abode here on earth. May God fill us with his Spirit that our vision of Christ may grow ever glowingly while our selfish selves may grow dimly mindful that anytime now the Lord will call each one of us home.

    To the brethren at KBC in general and to Mrs. Chibuta and children in particular, Jackie and I were saddened by your loss. However, we celebrate the life of Elder Mwamba Chibuta, and we know he is in good hands. May the memories of ba Chibuta and the love of God surround you and give you strength in the days and weeks ahead.

    A gentleman to the end. Walked with God and went to be with Him. My condolences to the family of a dedicated and faithful elder and also to the brethren at Kabwata Baptist. I received the death of Elder Chibuta through our friends, the Dakas. The news brought great sorrow to my husband who was a close friend to the Elder. We thank our great Lord for His presence throughout the difficult time of mourning. Our prayers are with you.

    I hoped and prayed that He would get better.
    His demise came as a shock when I received the message from my brother that He passed on.
    I broke down and cried.
    I remember the few times we would chat He would ask how the family is.He would ask like ‘mulekosa’?
    He was one elder who had his own unique qualities.I loved and enjoyed the way He handled the bible studies.
    He was one parent who inspired me from the time I knew him.He was a selfless man indeed.
    Though He has gone to be with the Lord,He has left a vacuum in the family that will never be replaced.
    One thing I know is that He has gone to a better place where there is no pain.
    Tears still flow when I remember the times I interacted with him.He is gone!!!
    Go well Elder!Go well Bashi Mutale!
    Till we meet again!
    My heartfelt condolences to Mrs Chibuta,the chidren and the family members.
    May God be the greatest comforter.

    The Lord gave and the Lord has taken,May the name of the Lord be forever praised.
    Amen!
