Acting President Inonge Wina says the death of former Zambia National Farmers Union -ZNFU- President Evelyn Nguleka has robbed the nation of a committed professional.

Mrs Wina says it is saddening that Dr Nguleka has passed on at a time government is prioritising the agriculture sector as the engine of the economy.

The Vice President says Dr. Nguleka will be remembered as a woman who broke the glass ceiling by being elected ZNFU’s first female president.

Mrs Wina says in addition to her regional and global obligation, she advocated for the protection of small holder farmers and food producers locally.

This is contained in a statement released to ZNBC News by Senior Private Secretary in the Vice President’s Office, Sheila Siwela.

Dr. Nguleka, 47, died in Lusaka at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) Intensive Care Unit on February 5th, 2017.

Meanwhile, the Vice President has visited the funeral house in Lusaka’s Meanwood area where she consoled members of the bereaved family.

Mrs Wina spent time at the funeral house where she encouraged the family to remain strong during the trying moment.

  1. Death is a sad thing but these people stole money belonging to small scale farmers at ZNUF. It’s a lesson for everyone, you can enjoy money gained in a crooked way.

    • Dr Nguleka was an inspiring woman! Ba DEC instead of focusing on tuma fake Pastors and false Prophets/ Profits and wife snatchers such as this Nigerian conman Andrew Seer1, instead of arresting those cretins you go after this academic, hardworking Veterinary Doctor, this amazing woman that put Zambia on the agricultural map! This is why I keep saying DEC should be disbanded and merged into Zambia Police, they are unproffessional in their conduct and they just make lives of Zambian difficult for nothing- DEC was created by donors during Chiluba’s Presidency- DEC has always been a tool used by fake donors to harass Zambians! This must change!

  3. I had the privilege of meeting Dr Nguleka when she officiated at Fatima Girls Secondary School as guest of honor at her former school’s AGM last year. The story about her background & how she rose to stardom was simply touching & inspiring. She hinted about her case and how she was hopeful that the truth will prevail. Her case was before the courts of law and how some bloggers can find it in their hearts to speak ill of her let alone judge her before the courts can do so really saddens me. She struck me as a very hard working & honest person. After the meeting, I went and asked her to have the honour of shaking her hand to which she obliged and was thankful. My wife & I actually took it upon ourselves to pray for her for truth to be known in her case. As she had wished, truth, no matter…

    Sadly I remember her as that woman who clang on to that position refused to relinquish it to pave way for investigations …only to later exposed.

  7. There was a documentary run on a national TV of the Scandinavian country on the ZNUF misapplied donor funds and the Executive Director Mr Ndambo Ndambo was seen to be the master mind according to the report and that he used part of the loot to fund the campaigns for 2015 and 2016 for the opposition UPND and the rest on his mansion.The report said the late Doctor could’ve known how powerful Mr Ndambo Ndambo was…The programme ran for two weeks during prime time late last year…

    • @Zakeyo thanks for sharing that fact! This Ndambo thing was and is together with the hopeless bitter UPND DEC officers directly responsible for the death of Dr Nguleka!
      Read my last comment from yesterday I stated it clearly that Ndambo is a United Dunderhead member and that documentary confirms it. (2020vision as accurate as ever!)

      The United Dunderheads even in opposition will show their sa.tan.ic ways- they are responsible for this poor woman’s demise! May God judge this sa.tan.ic group harshly and I believe God wil do just that.

  8. I hope that Ndambo Ndambo wont walk Scot free now that his co accused has passed on(MHSRIP)because this will not be fair at all.The fact is that there was a serious case of misappropriation at ZNFU and this matter should be dealt with to fullest extent.This Ndambo fool should not even be aloud to interfere with the case by taking advantage of the demise of Dr Nguleka.

  9. May her soul rest in peace. She was a good woman and leader. We as a nation are too good at ruining people’s lives even before we know the truth. We like to pass judgement even before we listen to the accused’ s story. The media has killed our genuine way of life.

  10. May her soul rest in peace. Condolences to the family. workwise, she screwed up. she messed up her well earned respect because of corruption and greed. when the rot was exposed, she kept on fighting and telling off donors to the detriment of majority ZNFU membership. That was selfish.
