Opposition MMD in Kasama District calls for Late President Sata’s dignified funeral
Kasama, November 04th, 2014, ZANIS — THE MMD in Northern Province has advised the ruling PF leaders to bury their differences and allow for the dignified funeral of late Republican President Michael Sata.
MMD provincial chairman Steven Mukuka said it was against the African culture to begin making appointments before burial of a respected member of society.
ZANIS reports that the opposition party’s leader said this in an interview in Kasama District, today.
The MMD was reacting to differences that have rocked the ruling party over leadership positions.
Yesterday, acting president Guy Scott dismissed Edgar Lungu as Secretary General of the PF.
However, Mr. Mukuka appealed to the PF leadership to allow for more time for Zambians to mourn the passing of President Sata with respect and dignity.
He said President Sata was not just a President for the PF but was the leader for all the Zambians.
Mr. Mukuka also called on MMD members to unite and mourn the late president in dignity and respect.
