Filed under: Statements |

Maureen-MwanawasaLate President, Levy Mwanawasa’s first born daughter, Miriam Mwanawasa has described former first lady Maureen Mwanawasa as a selfish woman who cannot lead the nation.

She noted that Dr. Mwanawasa was not leadership material as did not have the people’s interests at heart.

Ms. Mwanawasa told Ndola’s Sun FM that Dr. Mwanawasa was someone who had torn a rift in her family charging that she did not deserve to even carry the name, Mwanawasa.

Ms. Mwanawasa has since appealed to the people of Zambia to be careful with the kind of people they gave leadership positions adding that if a woman could not take care of her own late husband’s family, there was little she could do for the nation.

She disclosed that she had since decided to join the Patriotic Front (PF) as the Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) had lost direction.

And in reaction to the assertions, Dr. Mwanawasa, who is part of the campaign team for the United Party for National Development (UPND) said she had no time for child’s play as she had more important things to do.
