People are talking about the First Lady’s attire as so bright for the occasion but should have been black. Not all others have put on black. Picking the madam is unfair as others are spared. Look at the background of both photos, you will see other colours.
By the way paying respects to the tombstone does not necessarily require one to put on black attire as would have been on the funeral procession.

Zambia practices civilized politics of leaving tribalism aside.In malawi, you have empty tins promoting tribalism because they have nothing to offer or talk about.

Colour blocking stupid First lady you need to be lectured on wardrobe. It appears the one who does your wardrobe thought you were going for a valentine day party.

I hope APM thanked Kaunda, or at least mentioned and appreciated him giving refuge to late Bingu when he “escaped” from Malawi, self exile fashion. From the cruelties of Kamuzu’s dictatorship. Zambia was Bingu’s first stop on route to Zimbabwe. And the rest is history.

Can some body educate the first lady and whoever dresses her about what colors to wear to what occasion. This was a somber occasion, no one wears hot pink to pay homage to the fallen…… Only in Malawi!!!! Hot pink is when she is fundraising for BEAM! What an embarrassment.
