President Edgar Lungu says the death of Mwansabombwe Member of Parliament Rodgers Mwewa is a shock and a great loss to the people of Zambia.

The President said this through Justice Minister Given Lubinda who led mourners in paying their last respects to Mr. Mwewa who died Saturday July 18th, 2020.

Speaking during the Church service at Praise Christian Center in Lusaka, the President described Mr. Mwewa as a selfless man who showed love to many and executed his duties diligently.

Meanwhile, Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini said Mr. Mwewa’s contribution to the development of Zambia through debate in the house will be missed by the National Assembly.

Dr Matibini was represented by Luapula province minister Nickson Chilangwa.

And widow Anna Mwewa described her husband as a humble, kind man and a pillar who was willing to go an extra mile for other people.

Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila said the death of Mr. Mwewa is a huge loss to the PF and the country at large because he cared for the less privileged in society.

Earlier, hundreds of Orphans and Vulnerable Children paid their last respects to Fountain of Hope Founder Rodgers Mwewa.

Several children broke down as the body of Mr. Mwewa who was also Mwansabombwe Member of Parliament made its way into the Orphanage.


  1. Yaba my president I was so emotional when I first heard the terrible news. My president we have lost a great man. However in his honour we will win the next election by landslide. Kz

  2. Yaba my president I was so emotional when I first heard the terrible news. My president we have lost a great man. However in his honour we will win the next election by landslide. Amen

  3. How can it be a shock when you fully aware of your agenda?

    You’re busy campaigning and pushing your failed bill 10 amidst covid-19 pandemic.

    Edgar Lungu and PF stop shedding crocodile tears.

    PF must go!

  4. The ones who negligently insisted on reopening Parliament in the middle of a Covid crisis should take full responsibility for this loss of lives. The Bill10 chief priests should own up!

  5. Bill-10 at Funeral?? Why let Lubinda be the main speaker at Funeral of MP and not Mundubile, Chilangwa, Chief Mwata Kazembe etc. What was purpose of Lubinda??? Hooo yaa it’s because Rodgers came from Luapula to Lusaka to debate support Lubinda. So let Lubinda compensate the Mwewa family.

  6. How can this lazy man be shocked when he let Parliament stay open against WHO guidelines when the building was contaminated with covid-19.

  7. You cannot tell an 1diot in plot one that he is an 1diot.
    What a load of rubbish
    PF must go or zambia dies

  8. Pres. Lungu is responsible for the spread of the COVID-19 and the subsequent deaths. He’s been going around the country campaigning not observing the COVID-19 regulations.

  9. May his soul rest in peace.People
    Always have respect for the dead.
    Good words are always said for the
    People who have passed away.

  10. Really sad. May he be at peaceful rest in Christ. May his family find comfort from memories of his wonderful love of others and for them.

    I think maybe it was too much for the children to see his body/coffin. Children also suffer depression and it can lead to long-term underlining mental health conditions. For the orphans he was a parent figure. They will be very distressed and I hope they will be counseled.

  11. These *****s don’t care. And what are they all doing there? I thought there supposed to have a limited number of people at a funeral. I think this should open people’s eyes of who they chose to lead them
    They can’t bring back his life and yet they were
    ruthless in insisting everyone remains in parliament to force bill 10 through. They have taken an innocent soul. God does not allow evil to prevail. You have caused the death of 4 lives. You will suffer for that. You evil doers

  12. He sounded like a good man but I don’t agree he’s a loss to the nation, it’s a loss to his family, PF and Luapula. It should also come as no surprise to all PF die hard nincompoopering fools there in parliament who raced back through COVID to debate Bill 10 that both Lungu & Matibini refused to attend the funeral in person! Kuuuunya tu.fikala tu PF.

  13. So sad. This is a man who dedicated his life to helping street kids. He has helped thousands of children in his life. I was lucky enough to spend a week at Fountain of Hope Orphanage. Rodgers would be there from morning till night with the children, every single day. If they needed to go hospital he would take them. Rodgers death is a massive loss to Zambia. Who will look after the orphans now? RIP my dear friend I will miss you so so much ?
