Very shameful as there was dramma at the funeral of late Patrick Mbewe when the master of ceremony called Hon Atupele Muluzi and Hon Chakwela to lay their wreaths together .
To the surprise of the people, Chakwera did not show up as he was busy giving an interview to the journalists.
His wreaths was later laid by UDF SG Mr Kandi Padambo as people mummered in disbelief.
The development busted into laughter politicians who were there including Hon Nankhumwa who represented the president , Hon Muluzi Hon Mpinganjira, Hon Mchacha and others.
Some mourners were overheard that this is why MCP cant get a parliamentary seat in the south dueing general elections . Chakwela is useless. How can leave without informing his senior friends at state funeral like this.
