The first memorial service of the late Mununga is taking place today at his farm in Mukwela, on Lusaka, Livingstone Road, 10 Kilometres from Kalomo town. Muntanga who served as MP for 15 years died last year.

During his burial while paying tribute, a white farmer broke down saying he could not believe seeing “the Tonga bull” lying helpless in the casket. The funeral was attended by over 10, 000 people with high profiled figures from all works of life.

Senior Chief Sipatunyian told the mourners how Mununga despite being an opposition MP managed to access government to push projects for his people. The Chief said Muntanga’s shoes will be difficult to fit in.

UPND president Hakainde Hichilema described Muntanga as a brave vicious leader who spoke his mind and put the interest of his people first. He recounted how Muntanga threatened to beat up the Police Officers in Livingstone if they tempted to physically manhandle Hichilema during the arrest.

Hichilema told mourners that although Muntanga had not made to file in his nomination for Parliament, he would have been part of the UPND government cabinet.

He urged mourners to honour Muntanga by ensuring that UPND formed government in the August 2016 elections.

President Lungu declared a day of national mourning and described Muntanga as a good Parliamentarian.
