In memory of my father, Mr Elias Lazarus Waloba Chilembo, I have , under the auspices of my Chilembo Warrior Moves, introduced a special award to recognize outstanding men who in their own unique ways contribute to making this a better world to live for all. Most importantly, these men will be a direct part of my life in things that I do and stand for. These men will be sources of inspiration and strength, who in their own special ways, help me be a better person today than I was yesterday. They will be my teachers, my mentors, my guardian angels, my advisors, my guides, my motivators, my coaches, my brothers, my friends, my family.
This is a very personal award, a very personal journey.
The first recipient of the award ( Saturday, May 14, 2011; Oslo, Norway) is my Karate teacher, Professor Stephen Chan, 9 Dan, OBE, for his exemplary Service to Humanity.
Since he came into my life in Lusaka, Zambia, 1981 he has contributed in more than words can say to my growth and development as a an all-round free-spirited, independent, and self-reliant man of the world at the service of others. I have never had a more dedicated, more tolerant, more generous, more loyal teacher.
