Wina eulogises Evelyn Nguleka

ARTHUR MWANSA, Lusaka
VICE-PRESIDENT Inonge Wina has described former Zambia National Farmers Union (ZNFU) president Evelyn Nguleka as a person who worked so hard to achieve recognition at both national and global levels.
Mrs Wina said this yesterday during a church service for Dr Nguleka at Apostolic Faith Mission Longacres Tabernacle in Lusaka.
Dr Nguleka, 47, died on Saturday at the University Teaching Hospital after suffering from a kidney failure.
“Fellow mourners, today is a day of deep sorrow for everyone gathered in this church as we mourn our beloved family member, the late Dr Nguleka. I am short of words as we are all in shock in mourning her loss,” she said.
Mrs Wina said the nation, family and friends has lost a woman who worked so hard to achieve recognition at both national and global levels.
Mrs Wina said this in a speech read on her behalf by Minister in her office Sylvia Chalikosa.
She said Dr Nguleka was a trendsetter in Zambia.
“I pray for God’s strength to see us through this trying moment,” Mrs Wina said.
She thanked all stakeholders for their support to Dr Nguleka’s family during the mourning period.
Dr Nguleka, who also served as World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) president, was put to rest yesterday at Leopards Hill Memorial Park.
She is survived by a husband, Micky Ndlovu, and two children.
Other government officials present at the church service included Minister of Justice Given Lubinda, Minister of Community Development, Mother and Child Health Emerine Kabanshi, Ministry of Agriculture permanent secretary Julius Shawa and Ministry of General Education spokesperson Hillary Chipango.
