Remarks By Mr Chingati Msiska, General Secretary, ZUFIAW During The Burial Ceremony Of Mr Siisi Mutukwa, Former President Of ZUFIAW

Speech Read At Mutumbi Cemetry In Lusaka


Fellow mourners,

Ladies and gentlemen

On behalf of Zambia Union of Financial institutions and Allied Workers (ZUFIAW), we mourn our departed hero Mr Siisi Mutukwa with a heavy heart.

We have lost our leader who championed workers rights as former President of our Union ZUFIAW from 1998 to 2004.

During his long and committed service with Bank of Zambia, he represented the interest of workers not only for the bank but all workers in the financial sector in Zambia.

We recall that he was a firm believer in social dialogue as opposed to confrontation with our social partners particularly government and employers.

Mr Mutukwa combined higher productivity at his work place with exceptional leadership of humility and fighting for economic rights of our members.

Even when he retired from employment, ZUFIAW honoured and thanked him for the efforts which he contributed towards building our organisation to greater heights.

He was a uniting factor during the period when ZUFIAW leadership was divided and he brought us together.

We bid farewell and thank God for his valuable life on earth and May His Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.


Chingati Msiska

GENERAL SECRETARY                                                                     30TH JULY 2018
