CHRISPIN CHIINDA ASPIRING CANDIDATE 2021 – MUNALI CONSTITUENCY.
Born June 20th, 1977 at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH), Chrispin Chiinda populary known as Chris Mall within Lusaka’s Munali constituency, has now grown into a wealthy businessman and cheerful leader drawing the support of many, even on social media.
Chris is a committed Christian having grown up in a Christian Catholic family home and now God’s work testifies through his community service as he is every weekend seen participating in church activities not only in the Catholics but other churches based in Munali.
During his boy days, Chris spent part of his childhood life in Chongwe District where he did his primary education before proceeding to junior secondary at Magoye Secondary School Southern province where he passed his grade 9 exams to get a place at Libala Secondary School in Lusaka where he completed high school from.
At the completion of secondary education,, Chris spent most of his life working in a butchery in Mtendere compound and later got a job as a casual worker for Agriflora until when he secured another job in ZEGA in the same capacity.
From the little that he was paid as salary, a determined Chris made savings and managed to sponsor himself to college where he obtained a certificate in Private Investigations and a Diploma in Law under the Institute of Commercial Management (ICM) UK.
In 2004, Chris started his first business of a boutique in Chelstone which performed well leading the business minded young man investing his profits in Customs Clearing and Forwarding of goods.
He later on invested and built the first private and locally owned shopping mall (Chris Mall) in Chelstone which at a time was growing in population and thereby, bringing the services and jobs nearer to the people who largely depended on Chelstone Bazaar which was inconveniently a distance away from the residential area.
Chris Mall currently houses grocery shops, pharmacy, butchery, boutiques, Saloons and pubs Just to mention but a few.
Chris then ventured into the hospitality industry and developed CHRIS MALL LODGES in Chamba Valley within Munali constituency.
In 2015, Chris decided to join politics after noticing that Munali had lagged behind in terms of development.
And in the 2016 general elections, he made the first attempt to contest the seat as MP by applying for adoption under the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) ticket but this was not successful as Prof. Nkandu Luo was destined to be the candidate at that time.
This did not derail Chris from making meaningful contributions in the communities around Munali as he has continued helping the vulnerable including women, children as well as young people beyond his political ambitions which were not successful in 2016.
To keep the youth away from engaging in illicit activities, Chris is sponsoring pool and soccer tournaments aimed at keeping young people busy as well as encouraging them to develop their talents in sport.
Chiinda is among other attributes popularly known to be humble, hardworking, wise and caring person who would have invested and created job opportunities for the youth in other communities but because he regards Munali constituency as his home, he decided to give back to the community and has put all his businesses in the area.
Chris is also known for his great connections, investment opportunities and great collaborations with the church and community at large.
Chris is is therefore what Munali needs as he knows its history, knows most of the challenges and needs the constituency faces and is also focused on promoting skills development among the majority young people of Munali as well as being a meaningful lawmaker considering his qualification in law.
