LATE veteran politician Daniel Munkombwe’s second wife, Anne, has been chased from her husband’s estate by one of her stepson.
Anne, 55, resided at her husband’s estate, Kabebya Farm in Choma of Southern Province.
Mr Munkombwe died in June, this year, after battling ill-heath and was survived by two widows, Margaret and Annie, along with 15 children.
Annie, confirmed the development in an interview and that she had been chased her son, named Siafwa.
She narrated to the Times that Siafwa told her to leave the farm after being accused of allegedly inciting farm workers to report him to the Labour Office for wrongful dismissals.
“Siafwa told me to leave, in that I was disturbing him, but now, where do I go, he has told me to leave, I nursed the old man for over one year and some months this is so painful and cruel,” she said amid sobs.
After being told to leave, she was forced to seek the counsel of the area traditional ruler, Chief Cooma, but while there she met with Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) boss Alita Mbahwe, who encouraged her to report the matter to the Police.
She was later escorted to the Police by the DEC officials, who visited the area at the time of her banishment.
She claimed the differences with Siafwa, surfaced after the death of Mr Munkombwe, who indicated in his will that she be given K30,000, but that this did not go well with the ‘aggrieved’ son.
She said Siafwa decided to fire some farm workers that intended to report him to the Labour Office and accused her of inciting them.
She had now sued Siafwa for harassment, with the matter coming up in court tomorrow.
When contacted for a comment, Siafwa declined to comment as he was by Press time preparing to go to the Police where he had been summoned.
“Such matters you don’t discuss on the phone, maybe you could be recording me, but I can’t say anything right now, I am preparing to go to the Police, so I will be free after two hours,” he said.
Annie got married to Mr Munkombwe in 2014.
