Republican President Hakainde Hichilema has said that the death of Kabwata Member of Parliament Levy Mkandawire raises a lot of suspicions.

President Hichilema said that law enforcement agencies need not to be instructed to investigate the death of Mr. Mkandawire and settle all suspicions surrounding his death in a traffic accident at his residence.

Addressing hundreds of mourners during the burial of the late Kabwata lawmaker at Leopards Hill Memorial Park, the Head of State lamented that the death of Mr. Mkandawire is not only a loss to the UPND, but that the nation has lost a leader who stood for the wider interest of society.

Speaking earlier during a church service at Mary Emasculate Catholic church where hundreds of mourners gathered to pay their last respects to late Kabwata Member of Parliament, David Daka who spoke on behalf of the family said the death of Mr. Mkandawire has left the family in shock and disbelief.

Mr. Daka described Mr. Mukandwire as a down-to-earth man who always ensured that the family lived in peace and unity.

And widow to the late Charity Ngosa Mkandawire described her late husband as a pillar to the family. Mr. Mkandawire is survived with a wife and four children.

Meanwhile, the ruling United Party for National Development (UPND) suspects foul play in the death of its Kabwata Member of Parliament Levy Mkandawire who died in a traffic accident at the gate of his house last week.

In a statement, UPND Spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa said that the events prior to Mr. Mkandawire’s death were an indication of foul play.

Mr. Mweetwa said that the heavy defeat suffered by the PF in the August general elections has led the former ruling party to start mooting plans aimed at undermining the new administration, adding that he UPND is also aware of strategies that are being mooted by the PF to try and undermine the leadership of President Hakainde Hichilema.

Mr Mkandawire met his fate when a BMW X5 registration number ALM 5955 which was being driven by Jane Mwale lost control and rammed into his stationary Toyota IST registration number ALX 2038 which then squeezed him against the wall fence.

  1. A civilised President calms and assures the bereaved family of a speedy investigation, not amplifying suspicions like a kulima tower call boy. Ka Mweetwa is already pointing fingers at PF because his President is adding fuel to the suspicions.

  2. Very reckless for a Head of State to issue such a statement especially at the funeral and when investigations are ongoing .. reminds of the statement Lazy Lungu issued after Nsama Nsama and the UPND cadre were gunned down…why dont you just say the Police will investigate thoroughly its not like it was a hit and run!!

  3. The PF under Lungu stole enough money to destabilize the country & they are just beginning.

    If you treat them with kid gloves, they will next take a shot on you Bally

    They are like a scared wounded animal

  4. i cant believe the head of state is the one saying such a thing….with the instruments of power you are the President for all Zambians so stop raising suspicion when it was an accident…we have Police who are trained to investigate in short you are telling Zambia Police that he was killed but can you ask those UPND Cadres who claimed that he had died a week before his actual death… Not surprised with Chimbwi no plan comments

  5. This is f00Iish from hh. You are a president please start acting like one. How do you pass comment as a president on a matter that is still being investigated!? This man is influencing court outcomes..I thought he was intelligent enough to know simple things like these. He is clearly not experienced enough for the presidency. Is he saying it is suspicious because he knows there is infighting in upnd? They have already started lynching each other. We told you upnd was violent. Just look at their colour- red for blood

    What an irresponsible statement from a president… hey mate you are the President now and not an opposition cadre anymore. Please stop issuing reckless statements like this. Why would you amplify rumours and conspiracy theories? Shocking!

  9. Just so you know, when the finger is pointing there, I like to look at where the other three are pointing, usually, it’s here. It gives me a hypothesis and prognosis to work with.
    Are demons already asking for an oblation. Quid pro quo with the devil. It is a penultimate crazy deal.
    The accusing finger.

  10. HH needs to have his mentality checked…President of a Country trying to be the Prosecutor,Judge and the Juror at the same time…….just shaking my head how can a President sound so immature…looks like he spends too much time on the Zambian whistleblower and Zambian watchdog…He is not supposed to comment on such issues…it was an accident and it is being investigated….fate is fate…it could have been brake failure or any mechanical problems…..it’s about time HH starts acting like a grown up…meanwhile the youths are busy planning for massive Protests……

  11. Thank God UPND won the elections otherwise if they lost these elections the situation could have been bad in Zambia…you can imagine even after winning they still sound like they’re bitter and ready to fight……just coming up with speculations……now they’ve found something to divert attention to….but Zambians please don’t be distracted we still need Jobs,free education,fertilizer K250, mealie meal K50, cheap fuel, electricity 24hrs

  12. There’s no better time and place. To say it raises suspicions is not wrong. It’s suspicious, what did you want the President to say? Quote some verses from the Bible?
