Hon. Chuma Nzeribe, a maverick politician and former member of the House of Representatives, from Anambra state, appears to have joined the list of other prominent Nigerians who have lost either their mothers or fathers, as death claims his mother, Ma Ezinne Christiana Nzeribe, popular, in Uzoakwa Ihiala Community as Ikuneche.
Politicians from the political divides in the state, see the death Ikuneche, as a big loss to the Anambra state born politician, because of their closeness. She was said to have died at the age of 97, which many believe calls for celebration.
The Value News learnt that since the Mama died last November, the family House of Nzeribe, has been turned to a ‘’Mecca’’ of a sort for politicians seeking for relevance in the state. The former member of the House of Representatives and Chairman of the Committee for Works, according to political sources could not have made much appreciable impact in the House without the support of the late aged mother, who was said to have always been a source of inspiration and guidance to him.

Late Ma Nzeribe was a highly respected and committed Catholic who was said to have participated in all the Diocesean activities and very generous. It is expected that all Catholic faithfuls in Anambra state, who knows her worth while alive would be at Uzoakwa Ihiala, to pay their last respect to the deceased.
