HeadlinesTutwa Ngulube dies of suspected Heart Attack

Former Kabwe Central Member of Parliament Tutwa Ngulube has died. Mr Ngulube is suspected to have suffered a heart attack this morning and was rushed to a specialized heart hospital near the Kenneth Kaunda international airport where he was pronounced dead.

Confirming the development to Journalists in Lusaka this morning, acting patriotic front president Given Lubinda described the death of Mr. Ngulube as a huge loss to the party and his friends.

Mr Lubinda said they the former ruling party was scheduled to have a meeting this morning, but after being informed about the death of Mr Ngulube, the party decided to cancel the meeting in hour of Mr Nguulube who was described as the party’s dear friend, a good lawyer and hard-working colleague.

Mr Lubinda said the funeral proceedings will take place in Kabwe at his family residence and all the members of thePF central committee will be travelling to Kabwe to join the family in mourning Mr Ngulube.

Tutwa was born on 12th April, 1979 at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in Lusaka from Onesmus Sandani Ngulube and Miriam Tivwale Mtonga Ngulube.

He did his primary education at Woodlands A primary school and went to a Choma secondary school as a boarder where he completed his secondary education in 1997. Tutwa is married to Glendah Sokontwe Ngulube and together have five beautiful children.

In 1999, he enrolled at the University of Zambia (UNZA) and graduated in 2004 with bachelor’s degree in law. In 2002 while studying at UNZA, Tutwa started working for Legal Resources Foundation.

After graduating as a law student in 2004, the foundation sponsored him to Zambia Institute of Advance Legal Education (ZIALE). He came back in 2007 and was admitted to the bar to practice law as a legal practitioner.

Between 2005 and 2007, Tutwa enrolled at the American University in Cairo Egypt for a short course in Human Rights.

While working with Legal Resources Foundation, Tutwa had a privilege of working with nongovernmental organizations among them Women in Law Southern Africa (WILSA) and Women in Law Development Africa (WILDAF).

Working with WILSA and WILDAF gave Tutwa an opportunity of training paralegals and offering Human Rights courses.

In 2006, Legal Resources Foundation transferred him to Kabwe to be in charge of the Kabwe office where he took over from Abram Mwansa who is now solistor general.

Tutwa Ngulube’s political career started when he was a law student at UNZA having served as a Law Association secretary general. He also vied for UNZA student Union vice president.

It was during this time that he joined the Forum for Development and Democracy (FDD) under the leadership of Lieutenant General, Christon Tembo and Major Richard Kachingwe.
Coming from a humble background, Tutwa decided to join politics to offer a service and add color to politics by being himself.

He noticed that most of the elected leaders always abandoned their people and failed to criticize leadership by running away from the truth.

Tutwa was one of the most influential youths of Kabwata who managed to elect Major Richard Kachingwe as the first FDD MP for Kabwata constituency.

He and his colleagues among them Antonio Mwanza who is currently PF media deputy director worked very hard as UNZA students during the time FDD swept almost all the parliamentary seats in Lusaka.

At that time, Tutwa and his colleagues despite being students were very instrumental in politics.

In 2004 Tutwa joined the Patriotic Front (PF) when the FDD lost director after the death of its founder General Tembo and worked very closely with the late President Michael Chilufya Sata.

At this time he had already graduated with a bachelor’s degree in law from UNZA.

When the late President Mr Sata decided to stand in 2006, Tutwa and his colleagues managed to gunner a lot of support and votes for Mr Sata and the PF party.

When Mr Sata contested in the Presidential by-elections in 2008, Tutwa and his friends were very confident he “Mr Sata” would actually win the elections.

Tutwa had an opportunity to represent Mr Sata as a lawyer when he came face to face with the courts of law as leader of the strongest opposition political part at the time. As one of the people that worked closely with Mr Sata, Tutwa knew the late President to be a very honest man who inspired him and his colleagues in politics.

Mr Sata’s honest gave Tutwa a lot of courage and its this boldness that makes him speak the truth. In some cases his honesty has made him come in conflict his own party, the PF. At this time he had already graduated with a bachelor’s degree in law from UNZA.

  2. A life taken so young. Condolences to the family. This should be a reminder to all of us that there is but a step between us and death and whatever we do or say should be seasoned with salt to give grace to those who interact with and hear us. Politics is not all there is to life. Be tender hearted to oneanaother, forgiving one another even as God forgave you in Christ.

  8. Zambia is suffering today because of these thieves , since when is it sad when one thief dies? Since when? Him and KBF should have died a long time ago – they secured the Edgar Chagwa Lungu victory in Kabwe at the expense of Innocent. Had GBM, Miles Sampa or Christine Kaseba won those elections , Zambia wouldnt have suffered this much in the last ten years, People wudnt ve died the way they did. Let the bugger go and die in hell also. mxm, nonsense!

    • Really laughable you think a bully, Tenderpreuer and street thug like GBM would have made good President…as for Miles Sampa as President he is a coward only good at womanising and fathering armies of kids. Christine Kaseba isnt savvy enough to lead …this is a woman who is still working in Paris at the embassy if she had any brains she would have been contesting for PF Presidency

  10. We do not celebrate the loss of any life. However, we must not make a hero of bottom feeders merely because they are dead. Tutwa Ngulube like his colleague Lusambo was a very stupid and violent boy and he will not be missed by all. May he rot in hell. I am pleased,
