    Mpasu really deserves the hero’s status without prejudice. It’s unfortunate that he has died while DPP is in govt. It may be that Mpasu’s ailment started because of imprisonment he succumbed during Bingu era. One way of democratic govts running away from unleashing death penalty is to do what they can do and they get away with it. Each time a political opponent gets thrown into prison cells, when he comes out, he doesn’t take long. You hear he is no more. Quite strange indeed. All the same thumps up DPP govt for recognising Sam Mpasu as a hero of our generation.

    So common of people; loving , praising, honoring a dead person when in the coffin who they never wished well while alive.
