Contributing to a debate on Twitter following the violence in Livingstone, the former first lady said ‘when blood is spilling, the earth opens and heavens watch – man be careful.’
“Elections thuggery and violence, where to mother Zambia Mpongwe and Livingstone? She asked.
She said Zambia needs the voice of elders. ‘My country at cross roads. We must have elders somewhere and this is there time, I miss the voice of Mama Kankasa,” she said.
Mwanawasa later told the Watchdog that ‘my comments were not personal but of worry on the escalating violence. I actually commented after seeing the death of a PF cadre. lam non-partisan but a human rights champion.’
