I was born in Thabong Location, Welkom, South Africa; and went to several different schools in Lesotho, South Africa, up to university in Zambia and, later, Norway. The  city of my birth, Welkom, is a melting pot. Its one time vibrant gold mining industry attracted people from all over the country, Africa, and many other parts of the world. I believe that the  multi-cultural attribute of Welkom has strongly contributed to making me the kind of dynamic and easily adaptable man that I am.

My strength, my will to survive, my ethical and moral values have greatly been influenced by my parents. I often brag about being a self-made man; but, nay, the foundation was laid by my parents. These two wonderful people came from the most humble living circumstances on either side. They are the world’s most terrific parents. How they managed to build themselves, from absolute nothing, to become very decent human beings will always be a great source of inspiration for me.

The spirit of my parents is always with me both in times of joy or hours of darkness.  My mother inculcated in us very early in life the entrepreneurial spirit my two siblings and I have. On the other hand, my father always emphasized and displayed honesty, fairness, justice, patience, tolerance, endurance, inclusiveness, and generosity. From my childhood days, I recall with awe the extreme all-embracing and philanthropic nature of my parents towards the less resourceful and less fortunate around us wherever we were, no matter how little we had.  And in my family, we’ve always loved a party. 

“I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.”

I think a lot and critically about, and I have strong opinions on things. My choice to not be overly visible, or controversial in the wider public domain is more a personal disposition matter than that of fear of powers that be in the public discourse. As a free spirit in the free world I think and act as I please. If and when I must fight I shall.  This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is chilembo_media_logo_watermark.pngOn the ‘Home’ page I write occasional blogs on various subjects of interest and concern to me. I’m solely responsible for the contents of my blogs, and my books as well. I write freely to please my own creative urges first and foremost. My books are a next level expression of my literary creativity enlivenment. I live the meaning of my surname, Chilembo. In my Zambian Tumbuka nation, Chilembo means The Written Word. I will happily engage in constructive dialogues with anybody who may wish to communicate with me directly concerning my writings.

If you feel that I can help you in any way with one or more of the things that I do above, do not hesitate to get in touch. I help many, many people from all walks of life, with different conditions and needs.
