A very sad news reaching atinkanews.net this moment is that of a Zambian couple who died recently leaving behind 2-day-old baby.
Stanslous Mubanga Musonda died on Friday, July 16 followed by Barbra Muuka Ndulu on July 19, which was meant to be the day of her husband’s burial.
Stanslous Mubanga Musonda and his wife Barbra Muuka Ndulu looked forward to welcoming yet another baby to their family, but that was not to be.
In the would-be lovely story which turned out to have a sad ending, the couple from Ndola died three days apart leaving behind a two-day-old baby.
The Mwebantu newspaper reports that Stanslous died on Friday, July 16, when his wife Barbra was in labour.
Barbra died on the morning of July 19 not long after being informed of her husband’s death, the two dying within a span of three days.
“They were both admitted in Ndola General Hospital until their death. Barbra was not told about the passing of Mubanga until the second day when the baby was born. She, unfortunately, died after hearing about her husband’s death,” said a family member.
Coincidentally, she passed on the very day that Stanslous was supposed to be buried.
The news has been received with sadness from the public, who poured their condolences to the family.
