    • Not again on a national mourning please twapapata. with all due respect to the mtesa family. we cnt afford another liters of tears. lusaka water has increased the tarrifs wat with thier prepaid meters

    • He was one of the best UPND had to offer. When he was publicity secretary for one Kambela Mazoka, his press releases were just a work of art. Rest in Peace my man.

  1. What killed him? why is it so hard for people to mention the cause of death?

    It is the same with Sata, he just died from nothing.

    • Why do you want to know what killed him? It is non of your business, he is not your relative and his illness whatever it is is private and family business.

    • he died of cancer the worst part of it is that i was there the day before he passed way in the evening to see how he was doing he couldn’t even look me in the eye

  2. My sincere condolences to Ambassador Mutesa’s family. May His Soul Rest In Peace. I will remember him as My lecture at the Zambia Institute of Diplomatic Studies

  3. Condolences to the Mtesa family.

    I remember him from my fathers diplomatic and political circles. He has lived long and well, may his family rejoice in his gifted life before Christ. May they find peace in that as they remember their loved one.

  4. My condolences to the Mtesa family. He was a diplomat with immense experience. I had the privilege to work in Geneva twice were he was Ambassador Extraordinaire and Plenipotentiary and he was my lecturer at ZIDIS. MHSRIP

  6. As a family we have lost a great man and individually i have lost a grandfather an inspiration to me and a role model to others as well….. what hurts the most is that i was there the day before he passed on to see how he was doing and he couldn’t even look into my eyes only to be informed the next morning that he had passed on
