Mwanawasa funeral cash should be accounted for-Daughters

The row over succession wrangles in the late President, Levy Mwanawasa’s family has deepened.

This time around, two daughters of the late president, Mirriam and Lona, have called on the Auditor General to review how the one million US dollars alleged to have been sent to Percy military hospital in France to foot medical bills by the Zambian government during the illness of their father was spent.

Dr. Mwanawasa died at the same hospital on August 19th 2008.

In a walk-in interview with MUVI TV News, Mirriam and Lona, the step daughters of Maureen Mwanawasa, further disclosed that Lafarge Headquarters which is based in France footed all accommodation expenses for the former first lady.

The duo has also called for the de-registration of the Levy Mwanawasa Foundation saying the foundation is being used by Mrs Mwanawasa to champion her political ambitions.

The late president Levy Mwanawasa’s daughters Lona and Miriam Mwanawasa on Saturday threatened to drag former first lady Maureen Mwanawasa to court over the late President’s assets.

In an interview with MUVI TV News, Lona and Miriam claimed that they have only been given 15 million 20 million Kwacha as benefits from their father’s property and resources.

But on Sunday Maureen Mwanawasa said she is excited to face the late president Levy Mwanawasa’s daughters Lona and Miriam in court over the assets left by the former head of state.

Maureen told Muvi TV News that, being a lawyer herself, she was ready to face the duo in the courts of law.
