Hakainde Hichilema has expressed sadness at the death of Sesheke UPND member of parliament Frank Kufakwandi.

The UPND leader says Hon. Kufakwandi’s demise is a double tragedy to the party, having lost another lawmaker, Naluwa Mwene of Mangango Constituency, barely three months ago.

Kufakwandi died in the early hours of this morning in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he was receiving specialist medical treatment.

“As a party, we shall greatly miss his immense contribution and dedication to the country where he was representing our great people of Sesheke,” Hichilema said in a statement.

“On behalf of the entire UPND family, we send our sincere condolences to the family of Hon. Kufakwandi and the people of Sesheke Constituency.

“For us, it is a double tragedy to have lost two Members of Parliament within such a short space of time from Western Province.

“We place everything in the mighty hand of our God during this trying moment.”

The late Kufwakwandi was among Zambian patients evacuated by government to receive specialised treatment in South Africa.
