Death – Obituary News : Zanu PF chairman, Patrick Chinamasa, has faced backlash for mocking the passing of Zambia’s former President, Levy Mwanawasa. Chinamasa’s disrespectful comments on Twitter have sparked outrage and criticism.

Zimbabwean politician and Zanu PF chairman, Patrick Chinamasa, has faced significant backlash after he allegedly mocked the passing of Zambia’s former President, Levy Mwanawasa. The incident occurred just four weeks after Chinamasa’s visit to the Zambian State House, where he met with Mwanawasa. In a recent article on Never Mumba, a platform that discusses political matters, Chinamasa reportedly disrespected the late President and his legacy.

Levy Mwanawasa, often regarded as one of Zambia’s greatest leaders, sadly passed away, leaving behind a remarkable legacy. Born on September 3, 1948, in Mufulira, Zambia, Mwanawasa dedicated his life to public service and brought about substantial changes during his tenure as President from 2002 until his untimely demise in 2008.


Mwanawasa’s presidency was marked by his commitment to eradicating corruption and improving governance. Under his leadership, Zambia experienced significant economic growth and stability. He implemented various policies to attract foreign investment and promote sustainable development. Mwanawasa was also a staunch advocate for social justice and fought tirelessly to uplift the lives of Zambians, particularly those living in poverty.

The reported disrespect shown by Chinamasa towards Mwanawasa’s passing has elicited outrage from Zambians and Zimbabweans alike. Many have criticized Chinamasa for his insensitivity and lack of diplomatic decorum, considering his recent visit to Zambia and the close ties between the two nations.

As news of Chinamasa’s alleged mocking spread across social media platforms, including Twitter, where Joseph Kalimbwe first raised the issue, calls for an apology and diplomatic action have intensified. It remains to be seen how this incident will impact Zimbabwe-Zambia relations and whether Chinamasa will address the controversy and offer an explanation or apology for his reported actions..
