Mukata’s wife endorses PF candidate for Chilanga

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Maricoh Mukata, wife of incarcerated former UPND Member of Parliament Keith Mukata, has called on the people of Chilanga to vote for PF candidate Maria Langa-Phiri in the June 5 parliamentary by-election.

Langa-Phiri is locked in what is largely seen as a two-horse race with UPND candidate and Keith Mukata’s ex-girlfriend Charmaine Musonda.

Last year, Mukata and Musonda were jointly charged with the murder of Namakambwa Kalilakwenda, a security guard at the former’s law firm. Mukata was convicted and given the death penalty while Musond was acquitted.

Speaking at a media briefing in Namalombwe Ward today, Maricoh said her husband supports the candidature of Maria Langa as the right person to replace him.

She also stated that she and Mukata are still married and have never at any time divorced.

“We have three children together. My husband and I have endorsed the PF candidate Mrs. Maria Langa-Phiri for Chilanga,” Maricoh said.

“UPND has not offered us any support after the husband was incarcerated but has only been supported by the PF and Keith’s friends from the legal fraternity. I should emphasise that Keith and I are still married and have never divorced at any time”.

Maricoh was flanked by PF candidate Langa- Phiri and her campaign manager Jean Kapata, who is also PF national women chairperson and Minister of Lands.

  2. Keith has always been a political traitor so seems his wife too.

  3. This is not news. This is obvious. It is impossible for her to support her opponent. In any case I’m just hearing about her now. Does she command any influence in the constituency? On what basis is she endorsing the PF candidate?

  4. thats the greatest problem with the UPND because of not having the spirit of helping despite having resources in their pockets.

    • Like many others do you join a party with a view to what it can do for you or what you can do for the party? You can equate PF so viewed assistance as independent of dipping into national resources or laundering as the ruling party has all access to pilferage while the opposition have to fend using membership! All I can see is when it is UPND everyone expects HH not to draw a line between what is his accrued from his businesses and that which the party raises for its operations!

      @ ken jay you summarize it well as Mukata used deception on UPND when deep down his soul PF was still his darling. While pitying “mercenary Maricoh” she needs to open her eyes and not jump headlong in PF trickery she’s better off staying mum in the comforts of her home and maybe praying for the incarcerated father of her children. The demeanor showing on the picture as she was being paraded by the flanking hawks tells a million stories!
