Disgraced? Sata wont attend Chitimukulu’s burial in Mungwi

President Michael Sata will not attend the burial Mass for  late paramount Chief Chitimukulu Mwango Chilufya Chitapankwa (III) scheduled for today due to the embarrassment he faced after being told off by the Bemba chiefs when he tried to muzzle into their traditional affairs. Instead the President has gone to officiate at the centenary celebration of Lusaka city.
An impeccable source from state house has told the Watchdog that the invitation to this national and cultural event was made to the head of state but due to his ill health and the standoff with the Bemba chiefs, he will not attend.
“You know the big man (Sata) has a problem with the Bemba chiefs when he dethroned senior chief Mwamba and the Bemba royal establishment rejected his manouvres and ka health sikali mushe (his health is not so good). Definitely he would not attend and it is not established who is representing the government,” said the source.
