UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has described former Kalomo Member of Parliament Request Muntanga as a very dedicated leader.
Mr Hichilema said he has received the news of Mr Muntanga’s death with shock and grief.

“Request will be missed in so many ways. We fought battle after battle alongside Request. He was a prolific debater in parliament as MP for Kalomo Central constituency, and he represented the people of Kalomo and the people of Zambia most nobly. We cannot even begin to think of how the party will function without Request,” Mr Hichilema said.

“In the height of probably the most violent by-election in the history of Zambia in Livingstone, Request led from the front and defied all manner of intimidation to ensure that UPND members campaigned in the semblance of a peaceful environment. We could go on and on eulogizing this comrade because Request did a lot of things for UPND and for Zambia as a country. In short comrades we have lost a very dedicated leader in Request.”

“Go well Request, we will meet again. To his immediate family we would like to offer our heartfelt condolences and encourage you to soldier on to ensure we deliver on his promise.”

And UPND presidential campaign manager Dipak Patel said he is shocked by Mr Muntanga’s death.

“My friend of many years has passed on. It was Request Muntanga who convinced me to come out of retirement and join the HH 2015/16 campaigns. He had a great sense of humour and was a fighter for what is right for our country,” Mr Patel said.

He added, “He provided me guidance on many aspects of the UPND and the campaign. Whenever we needed him he was always available. A friend with whom I spent many years in Parliament will be sorely missed. May His Soul Rest in Peace.”

Mr Muntanga died in Lusaka yesterday at UTH after suffering a stroke.

    • If the reasons the man was not adopted was because he has been unwell for sometime. Would you have preferred he dies while campaigning. Guys be reasonable

  2. “Shepherd Bushiri: Prophet Or Charlatan?
    There is nothing ‘enlightened’ about him and his so-called Enlightened Christian Gathering Church (ECG), the Malawi-born Shepherd Bushiri is a prophetic disaster that has exploded on the faces of believing folks in Southern Africa. And people in the region need to wake up and resist every initiative by this roving con artist to dupe and exploit them.”

  3. HH says of a man who could not be adopted as UPND Kalomo parliamentary candidate that ” we cannot think of how the party will function without Request”. On the Muvi TV programme, Zambia Decides, HH is heard saying that “it is unfair for people who have been MP for at least three times to claim that the party does not appreciate their contribution just because they have now not been adopted.” Yet one may ask, how many times HH has attempted to be Zambian President and the UPND has continued adopting him.

  4. But why should the UPND pretend to mourn Request Muntanga when it is them who have just killed him?

  5. They discarded muntanga because they saw it fit that he didn’t matter in upnd and caused him to suffer a heart attack. Now these bloody thirsty lairs are mourning with crocs tears that they will miss request. Miss someone you just killed? How? Please Rev chomba where are you to tell people what hh stands for.

    • Don’t try to gain false politica milage of someone’s demise.Know the truth and the truth will set you free.Mr Muntanga was not removed by UPND leadership.Primary elections were held in alll constituenceis as per democratic norms practiced by all other parties.The people of Kalomo felt it was time to bring in a different person who will have new deas.Even pf did re adopt all its former MPs.So what?And waht about Rev.Chomba

  6. RIP Hon Muntanga. HH is playing politics of deceit over the death of a humble man. HH should be the last person to miss Hon Muntanga, he despised him by declining his adoption for candidature.

  7. RIP Muntanga. Even though I was PF I really enjoyed your passionate debates in Parliament. Outside Parley you were also humble. Go well.

  8. They discarded muntanga because they saw it fit that he didn’t matter in upnd and caused him to suffer a heart attack. Now these bloody thirsty lairs are mourning with crocs tears that they will miss request. Miss someone you just killed? How? Please Rev chomba where are you to tell people what hh stands for.

  9. HH and his cadres are busy causing confusion along Cairo road of Lusaka while his close ally Request Muntanga is having his last breath of Life in UTH!! This is how HH has paid back one of his loyal friends. Not even bothered to visit him in UTH or attempt to evacuate him to SA!!!

  10. He was there for HH but HH was not there for him. Sad for the family of Upnd and his immediate family. As PF we wish to express our deep heart felt condolences to the Muntanga family Mhsrp.

  11. Request Muntanga was there for HH but HH was not there for him. Sad for the family of Upnd and his immediate family. As PF we wish to express our deep heart felt condolences to the Muntanga family Mhsrp.

    • You don’t know Muntanga or what HH did for him when his farm had been repossessed by Finance Bank…..I am a farmer just close to Request and for a fact know that but for HH, he wouldn’t have had Rose Farm today where he has left the Ruze chalets.

  12. Guys stop it please! Sit back and think it over. If the dead meet and ask questions to each other then this request is being asked by mazoka – so you have also come? Leave hh out of this because he was not there. Please do not have short memory. Some of us our memories shall forever remain fresh. Be informed bloggers

  13. Rip Mr. Mutanga… its so sad that his rich comrades did not even think of evacuating him for treatment. Not really surprised it happened to Dr. C. Banda. If one cant even help close allies, how can he even make Zambia a better place for people he doesn’t even know to live in. BE WISE Bane’ the writing is on the wall.

  14. Yes they dropped him, for publicity purposes they pretended to readopt him when he suffered a stroke, but they had a standby in case he did not recover but in fact they did not expect or want him to recover. In the words of Spokesperson Kakoma when he visited Hon Request at UTH “…miracles can happen…”. Sounds heartless to.me, anyone else see it that way? I am not asking UPND cadtes here, i know they will just insult me without answering my question, but you know the chief UPND insulting consultant dont you? The very Chilyata guy who practices insults found right deep in chuundu county.

  15. Request gone too soon. Yes request was a fighter. A soldier filled with a sense of humor and passion for whatever he did. Go well my friend.
