A concerned elderly citizen in Mununga village in Luapula province has demanded that PF presidential aspirant Dr. Christine Kaseba vacates state house and concentrate on her political career.
Cephas Chanda has told the media that the action of Dr. Kaseba, who is one of the wives of late President Michael Sata was nothing but a gold digger who did not love her late husband.
Chanda said that traditionally, Dr. Kaseba was still in a mourning state as messages of condolences were still flowing into state house and many other people who did not have chance were still flocking to mourn with her.
“How can you have a widow start running up and down campaigning? Who is going to receive the mourners who are still flocking to her residence to mourn Mr. Sata? It is against tradition, even for Mr. Sata’s children to get fully involved in campaigns at this time,” said Chanda. Dr. Kaseba and her step son Mulenga, who is also Lusaka Mayor have filed nominations for PF presidency.
In 2008, Sata castigated President Levy Mwanawasa’s widow, Maureen for commenting on political matters shortly after her husband’s death. Sata sarcastically told Maureen to visit alangizi (traditional marriage counselors) because her behavior showed that she was uncultured.
