Former Zambian High Commissioner to Kenya Mumbi Phiri says she will greatly miss the late President Mchael Sata because he taught her smart politics.


Speaking in an interview with ZANIS at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka today, Mrs Phiri  said President  Sata was her mentor.


She said the late President groomed her political career by teaching her that in politics decisions are not made when one is annoyed.


Mrs Phiri who was recently recalled from Kenya said she was depressed that Mr Sata had died before she could meet him.


She reminisced that when the PF was in the opposition she would accompany Mr Sata on his campaigns.


The former Munali MP who was a close ally of President Sata has urged PF members to be united so that they do not lose direction and destroy what the late President Sata toiled for in the 10 years that he was in the opposition.
