Information has emerged that in her mad rush to become president under the guidance of the ‘Cartel’ Christine Kaseba forced her late husband’s elders to cleanse her faster than tradition stipulates.
And Kaseba, the widow of late president Michael Sata shocked elders when, using bin liners and bedsheets, she bundled President Sata’s clothes, suits and shirts and threw them at the elders. See the photos.
That was just after forcing a “Sambo lya Mfwa,” the official meeting following someone’s death.
According to people in the Sata family, the former first lady was supposed to be in-doors for a month mourning her husband and then go to the village to be cleansed.
But elders were shocked that just after foreign dignitaries who came to mourn the president left, she forced them to convene Sambo lya Mfwa and demanded to be cleansed that same day.
The elders from Mpika obliged and cleansed her. But before they could disperse, she ordered servants to pack Sata’s clothes in cheap bedsheets and told his elders to take them to the village.
It appears Kaseba despised her husband so much that she could not even pack his clothes in suitcases but wrapped them in the these cheap materials as seen in the pictures. Does it mean that Sata did not have suitcases or even standard bags that his clothes could be wrapped in bin liners and bedsheets?
One elder wondered why if Kaseba does not believe in tradition by going into the public barely a week after burying her husband, why she insisted on being cleansed.
