Testimonial of Leadership Legacy Leader
"In Wila Mung’omba, Zambia and Africa had a role model in whom personal glory and aggrandizement were conspicuous by their absence. A very engaging leader and friend, few equal his qualities of humility, integrity, loyalty and commitment to the noble goals that make love for the nation and humanity in general the foundation of life and duty as a service to this and succeeding generations.
The Wila Mung’omba spirit lives on in what he left behind. ‘Where there is love, there is God; where there is God, there is love’. "
