Former president Fredrick Chiluba says late Benny Tetamashimba was a gallant Zambian whose death is a personal loss to him.
Chiluba told journalists after the church service that Tetamasshimba was a gallant and loyal member of the MMD.
He said Tetamashimba was a loyal member of the MMD whose loyalty could never be doubted.
He said ‘while the MMD is trying to gather its children, its sad when one leaves like that.
And a family member told mourners that Tetamashimba died of cancer of the stomach.
He leaves behind a wife and six children.
PF leader Micheal Sata said Tetamashimba was a controversial but honest politician.
