The Son to late veteran politician Anderson Mazoka, Lundu Mazoka has died.
Lundu died last night in Durban.
Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Emmanuel Mwamba confirmed the development.
Mr Mwamba said the High Commission received the report last night that Lundu was apparently choked to death at his house in Morning-side in Durban.
He said the reports indicated that he was eating something while lying down in his bed and began to choke and he was heard trying to cough.
Apparently the food could not be dislodged from his windpipe and he died.
Mr Mwamba said the death was tragic as there were no earlier reports of Lundu being sick. He said Lundu is reported to have had a fruitful day.
He said other details regarding the funeral will be released later after consultation with the family.
