President Michael Sata Has Died

The Fifth Republican President of Zambia Michael Chilufya Sata passed away this evening in London, as confirmed by multiple sources among the delegation.

President Sata, who had been receiving medical care in London for the past week, died at approximately 2100 hours local time on Tuesday night.

Just two days earlier, he had checked out of the Harley Street Clinic to receive private medical care in a central London hotel room.

The president’s health had been the subject of numerous conflicting reports in the media and contradictory statements by Patriotic Front (PF) government officials for many months. Recently the president was unable to address the United Nations General Assembly, and was forced to depart Zambia just two days before the the 50th anniversary of independence.

Michael Chilufya Sata was born in 1937 in Mpika, Northern Province. President Sata was a significant figure in Zambian politics for more than 20 years. The former trade unionist defected from Kenneth Kaunda’s United National Independence Party (UNIP) in 1990 to join the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD), and later became Minister for Local Government (1991), Minister of Labor (1993), and Minister of Health (1994) under President Frederick Chiluba. He was elected president in September 2011 under his own party, the Patriotic Front.

Upon departure from Zambia, his Minister of Defence and Minister of Justice Edgar Lungu was appointed Acting President, though it is not clear who will serve following his death given a constitutional clause on parentage which may nullify Vice President Guy Scott.

Zambia Reports will continue following this breaking story and provide updates here as they become available.

UPDATE 4:43AM – A source close to the government tells Zambia Reports that in the early evening on Tuesday, President Sata experienced a sudden onset heightened heart rate and nausea. He was then admitted at approximately 1800 hours to King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes, an elite private hospital in the City of Westminster, however the doctors were unable to help for very long, as the president expired at 2100 hours, the source says.

UPDATE 8:45AM – A prerecorded statement by Secretary to the Cabinet Roland Msiska was recently aired on state broadcaster ZNBC confirming the death of President Michael Sata in King Edward VII hospital in London.

      i have been waiting for the news item from other world sources for more than 2hours since this news item. Still, no confirmation from other sources. I’m not sure. Until BBC home to the host country where he is allegedly to have died confirms I can’t comment.

      • Jonathan banda

        I really can’t coment
        Am not saying he can’t die but i really need bbc crew to give us the news also to confirm

      • matutu

      • Conie

        Will miss my president :'(

      • Humphrey

        The funny part is BBC has confirm but link the source as Zambian Report. No independent media has been able to comfirm this news so far.

    • Chimfwembe mwiko

      May his Saw Rest In please….

    • wanzelu

      What killed him? PF was saying he just went for a medical check up. Was he involved in an accident ? Lies catches up with PF at last

      If its true MHSRIP.

      • Nostradamus

        @Wanzelu, kanshi ulasangwa na kuno. Lets go back and lead people in mourning.

      • wraxy

        Nzelu ulibe, this is not time to say that when a human being is said to be died letter on the president of the nation, you should show remorse as a normal human being.

        • Stanley Siko

          Let me rewrite your statement:
          Nzelu ulibe; this is not time to say that when a human being is said to have died, let alone the President of the nation. You should show remorse as a normal person.

      • shiMwaba

        God have mercy upon you my friend. Your hate need not follow a man even after his death.

      • PM

        Exactly my point as well!! Someone dying while undergoing a medical check up? This is a first, but again with liars like Sata, anything is possible. Good riddance though. Warning to Zambians; God has seen your suffering under Satan and he has given you a second chance, vote wisely in 90 days time. Let us make the 90 days work this time. Bye bye Mr Sata….I wont miss you as you mingle with maggots..you piss of shit.

        • CC

          You will never injoy anything in this nation for calling our Prasdint who was elected by zambains and chosen by God by that name. My your futelr mingle with maggots.

        • Nana M

          You are not a Prophet and even if you were Prophets don’t speak with pride. No one knows the deep things of God unless his spirit. You don’t know what tonight will be not even tomorrow. Repent of your words. God will meet you at your point of need.

        • pascal. simbao

          Pm you are an idiot don’t rejoice over somebody’s death stupid.

    • Dokotor2

      Zambians have now had their Golden Jubilee gift!

      FROM GOD!

      • Unknown

        You sound so evil. Don’t celebrate over someone’s death, he was a president for Christs sake

        • shiMwaba

          With this kind of HATRED, how do these people ever hope their president to rule over our nation? God forbid!

        • I still have faith in Zambians

          He may have been Pulezidenti but he brought so much misery. Adios Sata. Never to come back! You were a nightmare…

        • Dokotor2

          This ID!OT was never a “President”. He was just a LIAR that cheated his way into State House and then proceeded to steal our money.

          PRESIDENT? NO! CHEAP CROOK? YES!

      • Edward

        Are you happy of what has happened for you to say this is one of the great leader who used of our late president mwanawasa

      • Mr B

        You must be sick in the head. How do you celebrate loss of life. You are evil.Dont forget that every soul has its appointed day. Your day will surely come .

        • PM

          Yes, you can and should celebrate the passing of a useless devil

        • I still have faith in Zambians

          if celebrating the death of an evil man is being evil, so be it

      • PM

        I agree!! And what a priceless gift. Zambia can now go back to normcy and start working.

      Its so sad for as Zambians to lose the President Michael.C.Sata!!! M.H.S.R.I.P

    • David Mudenda

      Our thoughts, are not his thoughts and our minds too are not his mind that’s says the Lord. people may say negative things but that does not change the fact that the our president is gone. one question you need to ask yourself is, are you right before God if you were to die today? M.H.S.R.I.P

    • steven chanda

      we miss mr micheal sata good presindent of zambia

    • The Priest

      @New Yorker-The total number of years the 5 presidents have ruled added together.KK-27,FTJ-10,Mwanawasa-7,Rupiah-3,Sata-3.Total:50 Years(The last Jubilee Yrs).Rupiah belonged to the last past Jubilee.So those advocating for his comeback are spititually blind.The 50 Jubilee Year Season will have it’s own Leadership.So Rupiah does not fit in the next Jubilee Presidents.

      Some idiots got no brains nor morals. This is the time to reflect and encourage each other. We have zambia to protect and safeguard. Think before your comment. Mr Sata had his weaknesses and his strengths. Focus on positives. Grow up you morons. Rest in peace Mr Sata. We will miss u

      • Aaron P

        Ladies and gentlemen, and indeed fellow Zambians: real men and women are not just a matter of trousers and dress, coupled with a brainless skulp. We all make mistakes so Did KING COBRA. LETS GUARD OUR TONGUES BY SEING HIS POSITIVE SIDE AS WE ALSO LEARN COMMITED MISTAKES TO AVOID MORE MISTAKES. GROW UP ZAMBIANS

      • Dokotor2

        HE WAS A SNAKE!

        A LIAR and a CHEAT. A CROOK and a CRIMINAL.

        The world is better off without such scum!

        Good riddance!

        • Mb

          Am not a political person but I can tell u when I went to zambia I was very proud with alot of work he has done. Look at how many roads , hospital etc he has opened. The plans he had about building more hospitals, fire stations etc these r the necessities that zed needs. Dokotor2 pls lets learn to appreciate wot he has done for the country. He may have had weakness but he ‘s done a well job. President sata may your soul rest in peace. For zambia lets mourn with due respect and find another president who will continue Sata’s work

          • shiMwaba

            Mb, do not mind such scum as Dokotor. These are brainless, disgruntled Tongas who can’t see the world beyond the cow’s ass. How can a normal person rejoice over someone’s death?

          • Selina

            Which roads and Hospitals? All those were done by MMD! if you dont know what to write, dont write!

        • sunka

    • Mr banda

      You have to believe because he’s not God

    • zim

      l am not Zambian but l just want to say to all those people who are giving negative comments Leaders are elected by God so its God himself who had put president Sata in that position, Just celebrate what God did for Zambia through him. May his soul rest in peace and may God give you another good leader.

      • Ndinoda nyika yangu

        You stupid Zanu pf apologist you know now that your pathetic leader’s time is coming. And when that day comes words will not express the joy all our country men will feel.

      • the future

        Pliz my bro, if God has allowed certain situations to prevail it does not mean he is the one who did it. God has allowed men to elect leaders, since men can choose for themselves there z nothing like God annointing some1 to be president. By his own choice, man shall lead this world to the end.

  5. Kaacha Mumba

    Sad news for the family.

    • Kay

      May his soul rest in eternal peace_my heart-felt condolences to both the family & the nation…That’s if the news is true.

    • zim

      We are mourning with you Zambians, may God comfort his family and the whole nation

  6. Chivunda Samusungwa

    Good riddance.
    Sata,the tribal and corrupt brute who ruled Zambia as if it were his private property,won’t be missed by people who believe in democracy.His violence,nepotism and lack of empathy made Zambia a divided nation along tribal lines.
    We are looking forward to a presidential by-election where we will choose a president for all Zambians.

    • Bukwe

      Goodbye Tyrant.
      Your tribalism will go down in history as the worst.
      Your cadres are killers.
      Your 90 day lies will be remembered.

        Don’t look at other people’s weakness, look at yours Dokotor2.

    • Mr B

      My brother, are you a believer? Your utterances are very disgusting. We all came from nothing. you were a single clot of blood.He that created you taught you how to stand, talk eat etc. From a clot of blood you grow old . The end result is that you return to him in whose hands your soul is. Every soul has its appointed day to return to him who created you. Therefore every soul shall taste death at its appointed time.Leave everything in the hands of the creator because he is full of knowledge the exhaulted and the wise. He was a good president.

  7. Mapalosittercares

    You fought your way through and ruled Zambia as a President. King Cobra the Hero. May your soul rest in eternal peace. I salute you even in death, you achieved your goal for Presidency.

    • Dokotor2

      He achieved his own goal to be President, but did he do anything positive for the ZAMBIAN PEOPLE?

      • Mb

        Yes he has. I have seen alot of chance personally . Learn to appreciated

      • kazmam

        @Dokotor2, you are shallow minded, you mean you have never seen the capital project our president started in this short period of time he has been the president. Learn to be appreciative. He could not archieve everything that he promised but he had put in some effort. MHSRP

        • Mr B

          Dokotor, Go back to school and try and complete the remaining 5 years.
          You also have your appointed date and it shall surely come weather you like it or not. Who knows it may be 5 minutes from now. Repent before your day.

    How can u reconcile this, like 6 republic presidents since like 1990, whilst south here we are stuck with the single elected political hero. For God so loved Zambia that He gave them ……. !

  23. Dave Mwila

    I live in London and I cannot say or confirm whether or not the Presifent has died. But the roamers wewre strong thstvhe was unwell and was not even talking and that some of his next of kin had actually come into London from Lusaka. All these were unconfirmed reports. However considering his length of illness, one cannot completely brush this sad news aside except to wait for conformation from the family. We pray for our country to remain united under these difficulty times.

  24. Mr Henry Kamvafwile

    A sad day for Zambia, whilst the sadistic minded celebrate, we should all hang our heads in mourning. He was indeed a great president, contrary to adverse comments from tribalists!

    • Lyelela Lyambai

      You can only say Ukwa was a great president if you are a tribalist yourself! The man was evil and his dying is never going to change that fact! Condolences to the family for losing a man they loved and for loosing access to the national coffers but for Zambia, this should be the beginning of redemption for the national hysteria exhibited on that fateful day in September 2011 when the country elected an uneducated, womanising, untruthful,conceited, and machete wielding tribalist demagogue who would somehow miraculously give them heaven on earth in 90 days!

    • stanley Musa

      Sata,You were our hero,its too soon to be taken away by death.Its so painful to us the Zambians who had just enjoyed your able leadership at its pick.Fellow Zambians, let avoid passing silly comments on our beloved president and mourn him in harmony.Its not time for politics guys ,pls learn to behave at times like this one.M.I.S.R.I.P.

    • Lyelela Lyambai

      Yes he will be missed by many but I think many more will not miss the uncouth thug that ruled Zambia for the past three years and who was so contemptuous to the nation that he could not be bothered to articulate his ideas through any meaningful speeches or press conferences on the few occasions he was not receiving the best medical care paid for by the Zambian tax-payer whilst profiting from shady road deals!

    • Lyelela Lyambai

      You are living in a parallel universe right? The man who single-handedly controlled road contracts from his hospital bed in state house was scrubbing Zambia from the stains of corruption? The man who unconstitutionally paid his wife money she was not entitled to and who created countless by-elections marred by violence and massive vote buying was scrubbing Zambia from the stains of corruption? Is it not corruption to deny your illness and waste tax-payers’ seeking treatment abroad whilst babies are dying at UTH?

    Death is still death and it hurts to family and friends alike no matter what a person did when he was alive. We have all fallen short in so many things in life, nobody is perfect. Heartfelt sympathy and condolences to our Nation, family and friends. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

    • Lyelela Lyambai

      Sata constructive? Are you referring to the retirement house he was building for himself soon after he assumed office at about the same time he gave himself a massive pay increase in complete contrast to the noise he was about salary increments whilst in opposition?

      • Dega

        I like your line of thought and honesty. Some Zambians are pretenders. Even when they despised and insulted Chiluba daily with their PFost Newspaper, they went to line up at hia funeral. Let’s be real and call a spade a spade..

  37. RoyK

    RIP

  38. Isaac

    Death is the destiny of all of us-too bad some immature people find it funny…the country you had better start praying for peace during this time as i see no capable leader at this time and everyone wants power and we have seen how nations have destroyed themselves for greedy people in the ruling party and in opposition all want the sit of power. Its the people that suffer…BRACE YOURSELVES…this isn’t going to be like the previous presidents passing

  39. Derail dem

    Road network,infrastructure development and conquered corruption
    Will miss Sata.

    • Lyelela Lyambai

      Conquered corruption how? By not allowing investigations into allegations of corruption if you were a minister but allowing investigations to proceed if you fell out with him? If he conquered corruption how is that the Post did not buy any corporate tax for 3 years? And you think putting your relatives in positions of influence including your wife’s sister with no qualifications whatsoever is not corruption? No wonder Zambians believed in the magic ink that led them to proudly take their own pens to willingly vote for the butcher of Chawama in September 20111.

  44. someone who cares

    All those pipo who r sayin crap about the president hav got s**t in their minds and am sure those r the same pipo who hav killed him.

    • Lyelela Lyambai

      No what has killed him is smoking 40 fags a day for 40 years and kukonda vigololo- in other words anazipaya ekha. Even during the last election campaigns there numerous stories of him collapsing due to fatigue and illness but his hunger for power would not allow him to retire quietly which would have been a win win situation for him and the country but he wanted to be president. He thought that being president was just about riding helicopters and was completely ill prepared and ill suited for the pressures that come with the job so the only thing to blame for his death ni nthota zake chabe.

        We await the next Bemba sicko fool for a President.

  45. Chimbokaila prison

    May his soul rest in peace if it is true. He was a great man with a vision. As for his followers who went to parliament to declare that he was fit when they very well know that their master was sick they should be punished for lying under oath.

    Why why did he have to die? Why Sata couldn’t you resign and maybe just maybe you could have prolonged your life. Now Zambia has another presidential funeral, why Zambians never learn its just mind boggling. Now they are going to vote for either the old and tired Guy Scott or the guy with a finished liver Lungu. 3 years down the line you don’t have to be a statistician to predict what will happen. Sata did not have to die!!!

    May the lord forgive all the ignorant people celebrating the sad news, with normal brain functioning, how does one celebrate the sudden demise of their president?. If you are that old to know how to read and write then you must be old enough to act responsible & reason. May God forgive you. Honestly you think its humorous to post such comments? Get a life guys and start doing product things with your time, rather than exposing such mass undesirable ignorance..PF or not PF the soul of man is the lords,how do you celebrate the loss of a soul christ died for?

    that’s too bad for Zambia.M.H.S.R.I.E.P,but i would like Zambia to introduce the health examination to the upcoming presidents to see whether they are health and eligible to carry the presidential seat,the problem is we vote who are already sick and allow ’em to take over,that’s no good at all_Zambia has shed alot of blood at that seat.We are doing nothing but just embarassing our country.We need health people to carry the elections.

All things work together to those who love the Lord. Sata was my hero and a gift from above, this was his destiny to die a president, he stayed true to himself. I will truely miss u.

    Americans are so proud of their president, whether u voted for him or not. Its that pride that builds a strong nation. Respect whoever God has appointed for you! You may not like him but respect him, dont let anyone disrespect your president, ichipuba chipuba chobe. Zambia is a christian nation for a reason and not by accident. Please lets pray for peace and that God guides this nation once more.

    PS: for all of you with dark intentions, for as long as zambia remains a christian nation, you shall never step your foot in the state house! count on that!

    • Chissulo

      American presidents are not dictators like Kaunda and his mentored boy Sata, that’s why American stand for their presidents. In the US there’s two thirds majority rule not the stupid constitution your president refused to adopt.

    • m2020

      Zambia celebrates today for God’s deliverance from the grip of Satan. Let God’s name be feared. His people cannot be subdued and laughed at by a tribal and corrupt cartel. Sata was a blot on the Zambian landscape to be erased forever. Let’s United now and start afresh after these three years of stupidity.

  134. Nox

    MHSRP! The era has begun for undoing all what Sata stood for- tribalism, corruption, and violence. It is now time to distribute the national cake equitably and to demolish the evil cartel that has been hijacking presidents once and for all.

    • LEO

      are you going to distribute the national cake in equality fool??? why are u so sure, whoever is cheating u to vote for him will be a fair man once elected? you are an idiot and a blind fool who is easily manupulated! u need Jesus!

  135. MC Demuse

    It is indeed true that your president is dead, but contrary to your daily reports and that of the watchdog, he did not die of a natural cause. The details of his sickness will soon surface and all those involved will be exposed and hopefully face your country’s jurisprudence. Your president was killed because of his stance on the mines. He was intent on repossessing the mines. He was poisoned by his wife who agreed to do the deed on behalf of the mines and was given $220 Million. The plot initially was chaired by Xavier Chungu and the treasurer was Edgar Lungu. From the day he was inaugurated, he was a dead man walking. The same people who killed Mwanawasa, are the same ones who have killed your president for the same reasons. Mwanawasa was killed for windfall taxes and his intentions to reposes the mines when he learned about price transferring. His wife was involved in his death and she was handsomely rewarded. The actual Zambian who poisoned Mwanawasa is still alive and lives in Lusaka your capital. The latest healthy hiccup Sata had, was due to a patch his wife was given and was instructed to use a health center called Umoyo who she brought to state house to apply the patch on Oct 16, 2014 and by Sunday evening she kidnaped him to a British military hospital where she and her handlers had made prior arrangements. All the people involved are known, but unfortunately, are well paid. Your president was duped by Chungu’s agent who happened to be his relation because he owed Chungu some money. This happened on the day, the military doctor was off. Don’t be fooled, your army commander, was given $70 Million to let this happen and if fighting erupts between those who are with the dead president and the traitors that have sold the country, he is going to take over on behalf of those who paid him.

    • LEO

      DEMUSE u have a very huge imagination. Please use it for fiction in holywood, u can actually make money out of that.

My advise to u is please pack both your balls and screw yourself!

  138. Harry

    Key issues for the campaign that has started to plot 1 is first: equitable sharing of the national cake unlike Sata’s creation where Bembas are getting 90% of the national cake. number two is dealing with the cartel: who ever will promise to demolish the evil cartel, will have advantage; third is constitution; we need a people driven constitution now.

He has lost his life while fighting against the many things that we where un able to see and those we saw. He was a brave soldier and has great sentiments for the country. He had fought against supsidy, unemployement and corruption so many times and saved the nation from them but to no avail. We can never forget his contribution in saving the country.

    Please accept my deep condolences on his unfortunate death.

    A head of state receiving healthcare in a foreign country says so much about his leadership.

  190. the Davey

    MHSRIP. WOW people here are heartless although I can understand the points upon which they base their opinions, though I don’t think the PF don’t stand a chance in the elections , lets see maybe it could be because of the 90 days rubbish that they told the Zambian people, or it could be the fact that there is no money in peoples pocketed or maybe its the wage freeze, Sata’s family have lost a member of their family, the Zambian people have lost a leader or at least that’s what it looks like. Finally we have an opportunity to choose a leader who is not old and feeding away.

    Too bad for us Zambians to lose our President

  192. MWAUTILA MWAUTILA

    BBC is consipicuously missing from giving us the news on our “late president”

  193. SILENT SHADOW

    we will miss you president SATA.

  194. MWAUTILA MWAUTILA

    BBC is surprisingly quoting “the ZAMBIA REPORT” as the source of the news on the death of our president

  195. Tk

    Condolonces our neighbours across the Zambezi. We are with you in our prayers.

  196. asan kvz

    r.i.p peace mr you fought your turn its somebody’s turn we shall meet.my condolence to the zambians

  197. Honouraly Grand Daughter

    RIP Grandpa Sata, at least now you will be at rest. Thank you for all you have done for our nation and what you put into place for the coming years. Another Great Soul lost, Heaven just gained another angel….You will be greatly missed King Cobra xxx

  198. William

    Very sad news indeed. The entire nation of Zambia needs to mourn the untimely death of one of her greatest sons. We will miss his courage and his vision for Zambia and the Zambian people. I am not a Zambian per se but as an African I am part of the African family that has lost a great leader in him. I also sympathise with his close family and friends in these moments of particular pain. May His Soul Rest In Peace.

  199. polisa

    As we mourn…let us also pray that God gives us a leader who will have a heart for Zambia. Zambia is rich, but greedy and heartless Zambians have been looting the country. We need someone who identifies with the poor and is concerned for their welfare. Sata was for Zambia, but the majority of loudmouths who were simply hangers on made sure we stagnated. I weep for Sata and for this country. God has heard!

  200. james k.

    Dokotor and your crew you are the most stupid idiots I’ve ever heard of. Surely I thought the devil was the most wicked person but you have proven wrong. A disgrace to the zambians and your entire generation. Zimbabweans and others are wishing us well buy you a zambia utter such horrific words. You are trully disgusting and very very very shallow minded and dull.. We don’t need negative pipo like u

  201. kunda chanda

    Am 46, I want to say wat I saw do in his time as president.He worked so hard that Zambians shud have patriotism toward Zambia as a diverse nation….wat we had on 24th october is what used to happen wen we were young,we all converged at independence stadium to celebrate with our leaders unlike wen democracy came were independence was celebrated on ZNBc TV cameras from state house…soon our children wud hav been eager to go to school coz during break we had a free pint of milk.He was changing peoples mind set to value our land….his development agenda was everywhere u can even ask the westerner who are difficult to please they all say we hav never seen govt works as they have seen under Sata…..MHSRIP…..I was surely becoming a proud ZAMBIAN!

  202. cjay

    Personally didn’t like Satan and cronies. But if anybody should shoulder the blame, it’s his wife and family. Maybe he could have survived a bit longer had he resigned to go and attend to his health. One word, greed!

  203. Mposa Mabwe

    Doctor2 you appear like you were raised in the streets and you do not know your father hence the bitterness.

  204. Daywalker

    Sata tried very hard god bless him but he just didn’t have what it will take to lift us out of this self imposed cultural, political and economic poverty.

    A lot of this reminds me of the late Chama Chakomboka who sounded like an idiot but was actually onto something.

    PF is now gearing up for the lazy way out since it is beloved that their inner circle will settle to front a dodgy but possible Guy Scott candidature for President. They are on Check….. We wonder if they will sit idle and wait for the Checkmate.

  205. knox

    TOO SAD,BUT BA PF PLIZ NO CONFLICTS WITHIN DE PARTY AND I THINK GIVEN LUBINDA MUST BECOME DE NEW PRESIDENT OF PF…..

  206. cjay

    ZWD reports that Scott-free has taken over as presido. Not sure what the constitution says, but we may be hearded for trouble as Mmembe seems to be at the fore-front of the shenanigans in pf! Another focile at plot one, thanks to one late Satan..

  207. Faith South Africa

    Rest in peace big man . Job well done

  208. nck

    its a sad development, may his soul rest in peace

  209. YOLO

    Sad News indeed; but hey – the only thing we are guaranteed when we are born is death, the rest is just a journey.

  210. Mo

    Dokotor2! I think our presido grabbed you mother from your father. You are not dull. You just don’t have brains. Water rans in your head!

  211. Gift Zuze

    l am not Zambian,am an Angolan, but l just want to say to all those people who are giving negative comments to late president,look Leaders are elected with the help of God and he was chosen by Zambians people, Just apreciate what late presidente did in Zambia and you should know that other projects which he planed will go back .May his soul rest in peace and may condolences goes to the family and to all Zambians prey had for you to have a good leader.

  212. man of God

    May God alone comfort u family and the nation if this news is true.

  213. abandoned child

    you people are just commenting.

    the death of sata is the beginning of change in zambia, how it will come, i dont know. it is a tough time.

    But God is doing something to this country, destroying the PF and avenging the people that Sata mistreated.

    All people are made the same in the image of God, and he loves them all, and equals them. No man can man, and tribe, can escape God’s hand if they mistreat people. This is what sata did. he had faults, but i fearfully say he lied to God, and totally disregarded Him, much to the detriment of our land.

    God is avenging these people, and a curse has been unleashed on His sectarian creed, and it will happen swiftly.

    It is a beginning of unfortunate things to come, i feel it, for some indeed, for they did not love their brothers and sisters.

    they are now looking for a way to create a constitutional crisis and justify planned anarchy, but they will fail, through it, he will whip them, and a lesson shall remain in the minds of this nation, even as it breaks apart.

  214. Zambia is a Christian Nation

    May the peace of Christ reign over Zambia. Believers let us take time to lift up Zambia in prayers and cover it under the blood of Jesus. God still has a purpose for Zambia and he is still Good, in everything we should give thanks no matter how painful.

  215. simbi

    I just have to condole with the people of Zambia for the death of our beloved President. May GOD alone comfort the family and the entire country at large. I pray that God will give Zambians the wisdom to choose a good replacement who will move the country forward.

  216. Benard Nabiswa

    The President’s resolve, courage and devotion to his country was and will continue to be an example of strong leadership and patriotism for all. In this hour of deep sorrow, I wish The people os Zambia strength and fortitude. May his soul Rest in Peace (R.I.P)

  218. Vyakulola vye

    The demise of the HOS is no good news at all. It is sad development. But what is painful is to learn of his death as though it was sudden. The cabinet could not raise to the occasion to put matters straight. Even when it was evident the man was not well, they kept emphasizing that he was fine and well. At one time even in the worst protocol in this country, Mulenga Sata must address the nation in a bid to assure us that the HOS was well and live. Now that he has died, what has killed him? What is it that we didn’t know? Did he collapse, was shot or poisoned? what ‘sudden’ death is this for one on medical check up as we were told when he left the country incognito on 20th october, 2014? The cabinet must own up. Someone should be blamed for the death of the president. If the nation was informed of his ailment, he would still be living. For Zambians would have prayed objectively.

    May Almighty GOD protect Mother Zambia!!!

  220. Lulu dee

    Thou shall not judge , least you shall be judged. Y’all saying bad things about your president, are you so perfect that no one has ever said something bad about you? Think twice coz what goes round comes around. Imagine he was your father and people are saying bad things about him , how would you feel? Such a shame and embarrassment.

    • Lulu dee

      Do not pay evil got evil. Michael Sata MYSRIP

      • Lulu dee

        Why don’t people understand, when they say his illness was undisclosed, it’s confidential. Please understand English. Even if you know the cause of death are you going to bring him back? Please people respect the dead.
        You are the same people who don’t even contribute to the development of the nation , all you do is poke your nose in other peoples businesses . And waiting to receive handouts, if you want to know how he died wait for him at the airport and ask him what killed him. You guys need to grow up and stop being ignorant , this is so annoying

    Country Men,there is no good death or bad death!Whatever our feelings were,put aside ,mourn and reflect on ourselves as Zambians.Cobra’s death should give us a thought on how we ought to perceive things in the interest of all Zambians.Cobra has never been my favorite President but As a person who has lost both parents and siblings,it’s a painful experience to loose a loved one.After we have buried him,let’s pick a leader who we know will continue taking the country in reverse as Cobra did.MHSRIP.

  231. Nshiki

    Sorry,a leader who will not take the country backwards.

  232. KENYAN 4

    Surely the saying that the more things change the more they remain the same now gets better meaning ,history repeating itself ?

  239. Mr Henry Kambafwile

    It’s amazing the levels this generation has sunk to! We’ve become so petty as if our brains are those of morons! Even the tallest tree has an axe waiting at its foot. When a man dies, why be petty? Clearly, one can see how tribalistic and & mentally retarded the nation is! Are we educable are we? Forget petty hates and show maturity!

  240. Modest l. Kamenga

    It is sad to read some texts from people who will hate someone who has passed on. Mr. Sata wasn’t the Messiah but a human being who tried hard to contribute to the well being of the country in a very difficult situation. Zambia’s problems are like wound “easily inflicted but takes longer in healing”. No one will ever solve those economic problems like a magician. But working hard together as a nation could restore the lost prestige we enherited from independence. May his soul rest in peace. Manzini, Swaziland

  241. mr president

    rest in internal peace mr president

  242. someone who cares

    Politics and tribalism don’t mix,coz if they do they cause nothing but distraction. I knw tonga’s hate bemba for an unknown reason,so there is no way u should insult someone who has died. Oh! And one more thing, UPND will never win.

  246. Nshiki

    Fellas just becoz Mumemba wanted FTJ to be buried by his Freinds does not call on that idiotic mentality to be embraced by noble thinking and all Zambians seeking a better Life!King Cobra will forever remain a President elected on Hopes that he failed to uphold to the electorates.Zambians put him in State House,we accept his personal failings including putting more money in our pockets!That has been his life race!Besides that,he was human with a soul and now that he is no more,let’s do what All Good neighbors do,accept the loss as a Zambian Burden,let’s behave the way we behave at a typical Zambian Funeral Home.Politics will resume after Burial!

  247. mj

    Excuse me shimwaba am tonga & am not rejoicing over his death.think abt wat u re writing okay my man otherwise i will be showing some of us that u re a brainless bemba man who blames tongas 4 ur poverty.gudbye

    if you can’t say something nice about the man, then say nothing.

  250. My Info

    I am not a zambian but when someone dies, at least lets say RIP especially the head of a nation. Let us learn to forgive and forget

  251. Kaps

    I think people of Zambia have commented a lot. Some have wished our beloved President good rest and others have passed on silly comments. those that who did like him, should get back to school and then campaign for the position so that we can see if you will make it to rule your fellow Zambians. Remember your day is coming very soon.

  252. Kaps

    My condolences to Mother Christine Kasebe and the family (Children) Writing from Angola.
