Chola Bright Mwape Dies in Car Crash

The Committee to Protect Journalists is deeply saddened by the recent death of our colleague Chola Bright Mwape, Regional Information Co-ordinator at the Media Institute of South Africa in Windhoek. Mr. Mwape, a Zambian national and a former newspaper reporter and editor, was known and respected all over the world as a leading authority on press freedom issues in southern Africa. He will be missed by all who knew him; we at CPJ will not forget his work. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Mr. Mwape’s wife, Judy and their 20-month old son, Isaiah.
