Acting President Inonge Wina has accorded the late former Cabinet Minister in the first Republic Lavu Muilimba an official funeral.

Ms. Wina has declared a one-day national mourning to be observed on Wednesday, 8th April 2015 when the late Mr Mulimba was be put to rest.

Secretary to the Cabinet Roland Msiska announced in a press statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday.

Dr. Msiska stated that all forms of entertainment nature shall be cancelled and only solemn music shall be played during the mourning period and that all national flags shall also fly at half-mast.

Dr Msiska disclosed that on Tuesday 7th April, 2015 a requiem service would be held at 09:00 hours at the Anglican Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka in honour of the deceased.

He added that after the Church service, Mr Mulimba’s remains would be air-lifted to Sandwe village in Petauke District in Eastern province.

The late Mr Mulimba, 77 died yesterday after an illness and the funeral is being held at his farm in Lusaka West No. 691, Sub division 38-39A, Mungwi Road.

The late Mr Mulimba served as Defence Minister and Member of Parliament for Petauke Constituency.

He also served as Human Rights Commissioner.

The late Mr Mulimba is survived by a spouse and children.


  1. It is right to give him an official funeral. KK’s ministers served the nation without personal interests.

  2. Former Mayor of Lusaka in 1970s, Chairman Local Gvt Service 1974-80, Minister of Labour in the 1980s, Human Rights Commissioner and later wanted to become Chief Sandwe of Nsenga people in petauke? Did he really succeed because Rupiah and Dr Mwanza wanted to block him? I even wondered why having held all those high profile portifolios among many others for a long time he still wanted to be Chief. He even pertitioned parliament over Rupiah’s SI 32 of April 2010 that recognised Shaderick Malamula Zulu as Chief Sandwe. But was he ever really Minister of Defence as reported?

    That aside, I liked him very much because he was affable and an eloquent speaker. Everytime he was on TV, he used to hold us his listeners spellbound. He really went quite!

    May His Soul Rest In Eternal Peace!

      You have done a better job than ba LT with LM’s background. LT should hire an obituary writer. It is possible to encapsulate a persons life in a single paragraph. All you have to include are date and place of birth, education, family etc political affiliations, portfolios and contributions.

  3. How many children? I will also deserve a state funeral when I pass on. However, those wishing for my death will have to wait for a long time time before they actually come to my funeral. I dont drink, smoke, sleep around or take recreational drugs. I eat health and live a comfortable life. I dont work for hourly wages.

    • @ Vodka, death comes in many ways…olo njoka izakuluma pakunya musanga, may be u ll be hit by a bicycle!

    • @Mr Banda, Cicil Rhodes and Chatasha, I had such people like you on my mind because you would pray for my death to come soon. Am protected by the blood of Jesus Christ. And being with a white wife is an added advantage to my prolonged good health. You will wait for a long time before am pronounced dead. In Jesus I have faith.

    • @Vodka Chagwa. So you think that white wife of yours who is keeping your poor, uneducated, punk @ss will prevent u from being hit by a bus? Kapuli!

    • @Chatasha, he who marries a white woman finds his blessings, joy and peace. If you are blessed, God’s hand will be upon you. God blesses those who marry women because they are real, loving and have a good character.

  4. Ba LT what does “was be put to rest” mean? Awe mwe! You are getting worse by the day. Also a bit of history on the late would have been useful to our younger bloggers

  5. My father deserves an official funeral he worked so tirelessly for mother Zambia during the time he served as member of Parliament he was chairman for commonwealth parliamentary Association for Commonwealth countries including Trinidad and Tubaego in the west lndies
