Mr Chipungu who is Rufunsa Member of Parliament says Mr.Kunda’s wish to remain at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) should have been ignored stating that when people are in pain, they are bound to make any decisions.
He said it would have been better for a decision to be made based on the seriousness of his illness and not his wish to be treated at UTH.
Mr. Chipungu has however described the late former vice president as a leader who was diligently committed to serving the country.
And MMD Lusaka province chairman William Banda has noted that the death of Mr. Kunda has left a gap in the MMD.
Mr. Banda has however urged the MMD members to remain united and ensure that they mourn the former vice president with dignity and in a peaceful manner.
He has since urged the MMD parliamentarians to emulate the Late Muchinga parliamentarian by offering checks and balances fearlessly to the ruling Patriotic Front.
And ADD leader Charles Milupi says Mr. Kunda had been very useful to the opposition and the MMD because he was able to use his legal expertise to quickly identify the constitution flaws by the PF government.
Mr. Milupi says the works of Mr. Kunda under late president Levy Mwanawasa deserve recognition despite the few questions that surround his performance as Justice Minister under the Rupiah Banda administration.
Meanwhile people from all walks of life today thronged Mulungushi international conference centre to pay their last respects to Mr. Kunda who died of severe anemia on Monday at UTH.
Among the notable figures that paid their last respects include Chieftainess Nkomeshya Mukamambo of Chongwe, defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba and his deputy Colonel Panji Kaunda.
Others included ADD leader Charles Milupi with his party members and other MMD officials.
Former republican vice president George Kunda who died on Monday at the University Teaching hospital will be put to rest on Friday, 20th April at the Leopards Hill Memorial Park at 12:00 hours.
Secretary to the Cabinet Evans Chibiliti said the burial of Mr Kunda who was at the time of his death Muchinga MMD Member of Parliament will be preceded by a church service at the Cathedral of the Child Jesus in Longacres.
President Michael Sata has declared three days of national morning in honour of the late former republican vice president.
