The family of slain businessman Richard Chileshe Mbulu popularly known as “Chile 1”, who was allegedly shot by his wife Annie Monta has dispelled social media reports that they have gone on to share his property and without consideration for the children.
Speaking on behalf of the family, uncle to the deceased and Wusakile constituency Member of Parliament pavyuma Kalobo clarifies that the family meeting held after the burial procession resolved to leave everything to the children who will continue to occupy their family house.
Mr. Kalobo also explains that the family had to consider that while the deceased’s wife is in jail for the alleged murder, she was legally married to him and a decision would only be made once all court processes are done.
He adds that no family member will be allowed to champion any property grabbing agenda and has accused some mothers to the late Chile 1’s children of influencing the kids to go under their care instead of the home where they have always been, in an effort to get part of the estate through the children.
Online reports have emerged suggesting that barely 24 hours after his burial, the family of Chile 1, descended into a fight for his remaining property with the deceased’s 20-year-old son reportedly running to the Zambia Police victim support unit.
