Munkombwe Gets National Mourning

Veteran freedom fighter and politician Daniel Munkombwe who died on Friday has been accorded a state funeral.

Acting President Inonge Wina has declared Wednesday 20th June 2018 as the day of national mourning.

The colourful Munkombwe died on Friday in the Livingstone Central Hospital after a long battle with cancer.

He will be remembered for having served in all post-independence governments except under the current administration.

Munkombwe leaves behind a colourful legacy including his at times embarrassingly honest nature as he spectacularly professed his “politics of the belly doctrine”.

    Lungu should have saved the old man’s life by evacuating him to South Africa. Why being tribal?
