Died Three Days Apart 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. Couple Hoped For a Son Until her demise, Barbra worked as an Officer in the Ministry of Community Development. “Mubanga and Barbra have two other girls and were always praying for a boy," a family member told Fyambe Media. Public Condolences The news has been received with sadness from the public, who poured their condolences to the family.
