Hot FM Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Zachariah Chavula died last night at 19.05 at CfB Hospital in Lusaka after losing his battle with cancer.

Many political, civil society, and media houses continue to mourn his loss.

Republican President, Edgar Chagwa Lungu, described Chavula as a giant who would be remembered for bringing entertainment into people’s homes and the candid interviews he anchored with guests from different backgrounds.

I would like to send my condolences to the Chavula family following the untimely death of Hot FM Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Zachariah Chavula who passed on this evening.

UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema said the late Chavula has been an all weather friend to us as he has been available each time we needed him for media coverage.

According to his cousin Oscar Chavula and who is also HOT FM Executive Chairman, funeral arrangements shall be communicated as soon as possible and has advised member of the public not to gather at his house due to renewed Covid restrictions.

“The full funeral and requiem program will be communicated as soon as it is practically communicable,” said Chavula
