For Immediate Release
17th August, 2023 – MISA Zambia has learnt with deep sadness the passing of Nambula Sililo, a journalist who at the time of her passing was working for the Zambia Flying Doctor Service. Ms Sililo worked as a journalist for about 10 years in the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) Lozi section.
Through this service, Ms Sililo dedicated her career to preserving our local culture through her exceptional work in broadcasting in the local language.
Her dedication to her craft was evident through her commitment to broadcasting in our local language, a testament to her unwavering belief in the significance of safeguarding our linguistic heritage. She recognized that language serves as the vessel through which stories are handed down, connecting generations and preserving our cultural narrative.
Through her broadcasts, Ms. Sililo was a unifying force, lending voice to the often-overlooked facets of our culture that define our identity. Her work went beyond information dissemination; it ignited inspiration and nurtured a sense of pride and belonging among community members.
In this time of mourning, MISA Zambia not only remembers Ms. Sililo’s contributions but also celebrates the profound impact she had on our culture. Her dedication and passion for local journalism serve as a powerful reminder that every voice holds significance, and our stories deserve to be shared in our own words.
Her legacy stands as a perpetual reminder that journalism transcends mere news reporting; it embodies the essence of our identity and preserves our collective memory. The void created by her absence will be deeply felt, but her legacy will reverberate in the echoes of her broadcasts.
MISA Zambia extends its heartfelt condolences to Ms. Sililo’s family, friends, and colleagues during this challenging period.
