Zambian Student dies in his sleep in CanadaJune 8, 2015 A Zambian Student studying in Canada has died in his sleep, reports George Mtonga from Canada.And Mtonga says often times stories that come out of Zambians abroad do not reflect the unity that actually exists in our community.Christopher Chibuta died in his sleep on June 3, 2015. He was only 26 years old at the time of death and he was in the final year studying economics.His body had to be shipped to Zambia and Sunday June 7th the community started raising money. We needed $5000 to finance the shipping of his body back to Zambia. As of now 11:54 pm on a Sunday the Zambian community in the USA, Canada and UK organized themselves to raise $5000. The entire amount was raised in one day.Living the diaspora, although its cheaper to bury a Zambian here; often always their family is back in Zambia and we have developed a concept called ” No zambian left behind;” and through donations we have always managed to send bodies of Zambians who pass while they are abroad back to Zambia. WE do this as a community; and we unite all our resources to achieve this.Christopher was a very ambitious man and had high hopes of becoming an economist as he pursued developmental studies in Canada. He will be missed dearly as he brought wonderful insight to our community. Often times it used to take us about a week to raise $5000; Chris is the first time that we have managed to raise the entire amount that was needed in one day.I’m writing this so that we can show what Zambians who are united can achieve. If we transcend this inorganic division such as tribalism or political partyism we can achieve far much greater good for our communities. These divisions only serve to take away from our destinies. I certainly encourage our community in Zambia and other communities of Zambians living in other countries to always look to the shared roots that we all have for our great country and unite to achieve greatness together.I think this is a true reflection of what Zambians who are united can achieve.
