PRESIDENT Michael Sata is today expected to lead mourners in putting to rest late former Defence Minister Benjamin Mwila, who died in South Africa last week.

Family Spokesperson Ary Mumba said Mr Mwila would be put to rest at the Memorial Park Cemetery in Lusaka.

General Mumba said burial would be preceded by a church service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross at 10:00 hours.

Mr Mwila died at a South Africa hospital after an illness and his body arrived in the country on Wednesday.

Mr Mwila fondly known as BY, was leader of the Zambia Republican Party and had served in various ministerial portfolios under the late Frederick Chiluba administration.

    • The fact that you’ve never heard of B.Y. Mwila tells us how old you are and also gives the justification for your childish comments.

      Thanks!

    • Kindly accept my apologies. Nick and I share a laptop. When I was typing, he was wiping my ‘exhaust’. You see, I have a running stomach and it’s affecting my brain.

      Nick and I would like to personally thatnk BY for the contribution he made in the development and evolution of what we now refer to as our nation.

      May God comfort his family and perhaps lead them to prophetic church…..
      ….and may that aunty not wear black for the whole year as she did last time.

      Thanks

    • Mushota, you seem to have an identity crisis or is it inferiority complex. I find it difficult to believe your claims that you have never heard of BY. I believe you must be telling lies. Being in UK does not mean you are in heaven. There is nothing special about UK. You are not the first Zambian to be in UK neither are going to be the last. You do not need to be an angel to be in UK. You claim that you are highly educated but you certainly lack wisdom. You are full of education in the head but no reality in the heart. Your comments are quite disgusting.

  1. Let us hope that those who claim to be leaders will learn to re-examine and respect their own consciences. The late Ben Mwila (BY) was a victim of a well known living tyrant.

    As time moves on schemes designed to torture fellow humans will often end up tragically. We thank RB for his kind heart in providing the much-needed human assistance to BY in life. MHSRIP.

  3. When a man of BY’s stature passes on, a nation goes into mourning and somber reflection. Apart from leaving indelible foot marks, such departed ones leave behind lessons for others to learn from. Go well, BY.

  10. Embassy Park is for presidents,

    BY will buried at Leopards Hill Memorial Park.
    I would have been shocked too, if it was Embassy Park, but then, I thought too that family declined and said they bury in Kitwe near the fathers grave?..well, the dead knows nothing, even if SATA gives a good treatment, BY has died a miserable man due to the ill treatment by SATA government. The Dead Know nothing,

    Leopards Hill Memorial Park

    Leopards Hill Memorial Park is a private cemetery in the eastern suburbs of Lusaka, Zambia, offering quality facilities in landscaped and secure grounds, giving a tranquil final resting place for loved ones.

  11. I would like to set eyes on Mr. Sata as verification that he is still alive and at the helm. A video would be best but pics are fine too.

    He appears for a funeral but not for Press Conferences? Most people would be more appreciative if he skipped the funeral (mourn privately) and address the many ills the nation is facing in a question and Answer session.

    Talk to us sir!

  13. when the occasion does not call for talking about the economy or strategic developmental plans, you can be rest assured Sata will ‘take the lead’. I liked BY and am genuinely sorry he died.
