Opposition UPND Member of Parliament for Katuba Patricia Mwashingwele has died.

Ms. Mwashingwele died in the early hours of Tuesday, May 2nd 2019 after a short illness.

Keembe Member of Parliament Princess Kasune Zulu confirmed Ms. Mwashingwele’s death this morning.

“Great loss to the entire nation of Zambia, women in leadership, the Lenje people and UPND party,” Mrs. Kasune-Zulu wrote on her Facebook page.

“Hard to believe just last month we took this photo. Today Honorable Mwashingwele of Katuba Constituency (in white headdress left) passed away few minutes ago. Unbelievable still not believing this. Our big sister for central province unreal. Indeed life is too short. Fleeting life is. What a loss for Bwine Mukuni #Surreal.”

Born on 30th September 1968, Mrs Mwashingwele was elected Member of Parliament in 2016 after defeating PF’s Jonas Shakafuswa by a wide margin.

She also served as UPND Deputy Spokesperson.

  1. Very sad. We should not be losing leaders at such a rate. May her soul rest in eternal peace.

    • Oh shame – MHSRIP. Thoughts with her family.

      Davies Mwila and his cohorts will be salivating at a chance to get the seat back to PF.
      I don’t know why I’m thinking like this. I hope I’m wrong.

      I hold a phd

      Thanks

    • Two different pictures here but same name. Which one is true. The top or bottom white headdress..

    • Comment:Oooh nooooh what a big lose, my heartfelt condolences to the family, Katuba constituency and the nation of Zambia at large

    • PF violence off to Katuba. These are the real by elections which cannot be avoided not where you sack your own members then lose your seat to NDC

  2. First of all condolences and may her soul rest in eternal peace.

    HOWEVER, Who is poisoning UPND MPs????? This needs to be investigated!!!! You can’t have a small party in Parliament losing two MPs due to death in a space of a year compared to the other bigger party , not losing a single MP due to death. The probability maths is not adding up here. Something is fishy here. This is like the Boeing 737 MAX. You can’t lose two new planes within a short span of time. We need to investigate why UPND MPs are dying so fast and inducing costly by elections.

    • @Observer. Well you’re right UPND has lost more MPs and chairperson(s) in this 2016 to 2021 period. Even though death is natural this is kind of strange.

    • i totally agree with you. P.F. and SUNDAY CHANDA are capable of anything sinister. They could be behind these deaths, in desperation to get to two thirds majority in parliament,

    • I am wondering if there is a connection between her death and that of her husband, Professor Peter Chanda Chishimba of the University of Zambia’s School of Education who passed away just two weeks ago. Someone told me the two had been very close. Could it be depression and its related effects?

    • @Old School. We understand natural causes, but it is at UTH were she died, the same hospital avoided by those in govt. Why they avoid it we don’t know.

    • @4.1 Observer….. You call someone whose 50yrs, young age. I dont know which planet you come from. MHSRP

    • Exactly, remember Dr. Chikusu who was poisoned and died. He was the MP for Katuba before Madam Mwachingwele?

  3. Deepest condolences to the UPND and the family of the late Mwashingwele.She was quite a voice of the voiceless. May Her Soul Rest In Peace

    • Depression can kill you in weeks. Depressed people stop eating and drinking, they commit suicide, they lose interest in things that made them happy, etc. You can easily die with depression

    • She always spoke sense in parliament, a true voice of the people. Rest in eternal peace Mama. Indeed takalwilwa na mwine.

  5. She always spoke sense in parliament, a true voice of the people. Rest in eternal peace Mama.

  6. Too bad and may the family accept our heartfelt condolences!!!
    As for you UPND cadres above who are blaming PF over this death,you should be real in life guys because soon you will start blaming PF for failing to do your wives nicely on bed!!!DEATH IS NATURAL IN LIFE,SO ANYONE CAN DIE AT ANYTIME!!we hear that she just lost her husband 2 weeks ago,meaning she died due to stress!!!
    MAY HER SOUL REST IN PEACE!!

  7. Nakale nakale abakalamba balesosa abati: pasopo, icuma ca wafwa tabapenenako, chilaletelela mwana yama. Uyo Peter Chishimba nao ali nabana bakwe no lupwa no mukashi wakubalilapo. Ati wemwana teka akasanga mulinso, pilikiti pilikiti tanasha fikali kano male male.

  8. Bantu botatwe enjoy multiple relationships, please beware of HIV and AIDS do not blame anyone but personal behavior and SIDA in bantu botatwe.

    • Stop the Stigma! People no longer have to die of HIV related diseases. Princesses Kasune is a good example

  9. Sp Prof. Chishimba was married to another woman but at the same time sleeping with this woman mp?

  10. It very sad indeed.may her soul rest in peace. Now its not fair to think that other people are salivating over the loss of afellow human being. It sometimes the people who always write like this harbour hate and are the ones thinking in those lines. Whose not going to died on earth?

  11. The MPs who are attending the NDF need protection. Trib.als don’t take kindly to their MPs doing reasonable things for the nation or their electorate. When Keith Mukata defied the gods by not boycotting the presidential opening of parliament a few years ago, there was a statement issued that he would be dealt with. The rest is history…… the evil trib.al characters who want to rule us!!

  12. The bible says Jesus shall come like a thief. This means that naturally death is not programmed. One can die at any time regardless of your state of being at that time. MHSRIP

  13. Let us face facts. Death is their for as all. Read from the below extracts from a blind Zambian singer whose song was banned simply because he mentioned the of GOD in his song. KK banned the song fact is the guy was telling the truth

    “Infwa chintu chabi pa, imfwa mulyani wesu ushimoneka
    “infwa tawaba nokusala, imfwa bane tailaya nobushiku ikesa
    “Mayo nali kwete aba nandi,
    “We LESA we tawa kwata uluse imfwa nayo wasendela abanandi
    “Ne mulanda ya nshila ama chushi nama tontonkanyo pano chalo
    etc

    This song extract played for only a week on Radio Zambia around 1977/78/79, one of these recall cause I was then based ku chingola. KK and UNIP banned this song, when in actual fact death does not look at someones age, colour, sex, status in Society. Death can strike at anyone,…

  14. Cont……
    anyone, including the unbørn right in their mothers wombs

    Anyway it has been said that God creates and the same God takes away

    As human beings the earlier we accept death exists the better our lives. The equation is as follows;
    B+L=D (birth +life=Death)
    When we are born as humans, we are automatically sentenced to death, in the sense that we shall all die whether we like it or not. Imagine it is year 2019 that is to say two thousand and 19 years have passed since we started recording history, if you divide 2019 by 100, the result is 200 generations of 100 years each are no longer alive. Food for thought
    So death yena kusumina fye ta kwaba uku butuka nangu ukufisama awe

  15. I have accepted and takes death as it is, as there is no other way. We who are alive should not that those that are dead are stupid, we shall all go through that whether we like it or not. That is the fairness of death. Everyone shall test mr. death, ukwa bula uku pipila, kala suminafye chapwa

  16. MYSRIP. I followed & admired your work even when you were in Agenda for Zambia with Fr. Frank Bwalya
    You were indeed a leader for your people. We pray for God’s strength to the bereaved family.

    • She was indeed a powerful woman who I also followed at the time of “ALLIANCE FOR A BETTER ZAMBIA” under the chameleon father Frank Bwalya. Rest in peace mum.

  17. UTH is a not fit for a purpose. That is why those in goverment run to India and South Africa. That hospital is a death trap

  18. Blair should answer the question s/he asks. Inonge is in SA and this lady dies in UTH and you asks if she is young?

  19. Wait and see the candidate the UPND they will pick in katuba, they will end up picking someone who stays in Town instead of a local person.As long you corrupt management team you adopted.HH don’t allow Garry nkombo to manipulate the system otherwise you will end up picking Jonas shakafuswa who is like chameleon.patricia. m you will be missed on this Earth.

  20. Deepest condolences.
    How I wish we cud just have the UPND pick their member who took 2nd position in their primaries… My foot wat cacophony & unnecessary waste of public resources we’ll be subjected2 in the bye election!!!

  21. Just noticed that Mrs Mavis Lengalenga Muyunda was also Katuba MP. The late MPs for Katuba include Dr Chikusu and Godfrey Layima

  22. Exactly, remember Dr. Chikusu who was poisoned and died. He was the MP for Katuba before Madam Mwachingwele?
