Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba has described the death of Lundu Mazoka as tragic. Lundu, son of the late UPND founding leader Anderson Mazoka, allegedly choked to death at his house in Morningside, Durban on Tuesday. High Commissioner Mwamba confirmed the development, saying reports indicated that Lundu was eating while lying down in his bed. High Commissioner Mwamba said Lundu began to choke and was heard trying to cough but apparently the food could not be dislodged from his windpipe.
The High Commissioner said the death was tragic as there were no earlier reports of Lundu being sick. He said Lundu is reported to have had a fruitful day. High Commissioner Mwamba said other details regarding the funeral would be released later after consultation with the family.
This is according to Naomi Nyawali, the first secretary press and public relations at Zambia’s Embassy in South Africa.
