President Sata body Guards arrive at natioanl Heroes Stadium 0886
THE value of the estate left by late President Michael Sata is a mystery to the children and other beneficiaries, claims Petronnela Mpundu who has deposed in the Lusaka High Court as widow of the fifth head of State of Zambia.

Mukupa and Salome Sata, children of Ms Mpundu, have sued former first lady Dr Christine Kaseba, and State House deputy minister Mulenga Sata, in the High Court for being sidelined in the activities and decisions surrounding the estate of their father.

Ms Mpundu has told the Lusaka High Court that since Mr Sata died intestate on October 28 2014 there has been no of the assets to be considered in the determination of sharing amongst all the beneficiaries.

She explained that as a widow of the late president, she and her two children deserved to know the value of the estate left behind by her husband in order to understand what they were entitled to.

Ms Mpundu explained that since the appointment of Dr Kaseba and Mulenga Sata as administrators, her two children with the late head of state aged 17 and 10 respectively have not received any form of financial or other assistance from their father’s estate since his death which has left them near- destitute.

She said the deceased maintained a close relationship with his children and his extended family throughput their lives, and especially that they were both minors, and were since birth in her custody, they fully maintained by their father until his demise.

She charged that after the funeral, the administrators only request accounts details of the children for the distribution of their purported share of their father’s estate despite the absence of a full declaration of the actual value of the estate.

She disclosed that Cabinet wrote a confidential letter acknowledging that the deceased was the father the children and that he had even employed a driver to be taking the children to school. He had also created a trust for them.

She complained that the details of the trust had not been released to her despite several attempts to get details from the administrators. “That on 2nd February 2016, I received a letter from the respondents requesting for the account information of the children for the distribution of the estate of the deceased. “They allocated K105,516.67 to each child as well as US$16,304 and K39,460.59 to each child without showing proper valuation of the estate,” the court document states.

Ms Mpundu explained that she was not included in the division of the money in the various accounts as she was not included among the deceased’s dependants, showing clearly how she was left out of the estate, including its full value.

Ms Mpundu lamented about her challenges in meeting her children’s school requirements and other daily needs since the passing away of their father, and that Dr Kaseba, Mulenga and the Attorney General have all failed to support the children as administrators of their father’s estate.

She said her children were both minors under the age of 17 years and so required more assistance than the older children’s entitlements in the estate of the late president.

She has since applied for an injunction to restrain the three administrators from taking any further action on the estate of the late President until the matter is determined.

    • BB2016, are you completely deluded? This man was the biggest LIAR and CHEAT Zambia has seen!

      His only achievement was to make a joke of our Nation. The rest of the world was laughing at us for having elected a complete clown and IDDDIOT the President of the country!

    • @Ndobo, when I used to call Ba Kilistina ati “Muka Yama”, now you start to understand. I told you Mulenga & Kazimu are not my cousins, and Miles Sampa, I didn’t even know him, until when they were fighting for imishingo ya bu PF.
      Anyway, to answer your question, I know some Sata windows, but I will not be specific because now the case is in court. No contempt.

    • @Ndobo…..Sata left behind the following officially known Wodow:
      1). Margaret Nyamanda Sata – who is mother to Mulenga (Deputy Statehouse Minister). She was the officially married first wife of Sata.
      2). Dr. Christine Kaseba Sata – who we all knew as the first lady. In fact Sata had already settled the scores with his extended family before he became president. He chose Christine as first lady and this was communicated to all his wives.
      3). Concubine Petronella Mpundu – with whom Sata fathered two biological children.
      Of course there are more children randomly sired by Sata with other women considered to be out of the move on the go!

  3. Every Zambian must realise that there is an urgent need, whether in the village or in town, to work hard and secure one’s own future. This system of crying and depending on the sweat of a deceased must end. Only children should have a right to that sweat, not a grownup woman or uncle. So work hard and don’t look so much at my little assets, I will give everything to charitable organisations.

  4. Bakaseba go back to that kaseba Zambians knew before sata died. Every thing about you is good where is the problem kanshi? I had hope that you will be the first Zambian female president now you are just drifting away from yourself. Go back to PF and work with your govt PF. your future is in PF.

  5. The old man was stubborn even when he was going in and out of hospital couldn’t leave a will…maybe his personal doctor/wife convinced him otherwise. The old man has left a lot of problems including the bad state of the economy!!

      The only thing he understood – was: “Kula bika fye, fili uko tuleya!!”

  9. Sata was not married to Petronella. balecitafye ubucende without condoms. It all started when ka Petty was at UNZA as an economics student. Upon graduation, in return for accepting the old man he sent her to UCT (University of Cape Town mew fikopo). Amafumo yena talepisha round mudala. Elyo choice alikwete only sharp women all of them. I have my doubts whether he will rest in peace panyu abana ashile bafulisha. bambi balefwaikwa na DNA. Petty is very young and a bit beautiful kuti afwayafye shikulubantu naumbi nangula kuti bashukulu ba Chikwanda bamupyana kabili te criminal offence.
