FORMER Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) general secretary Violet Sampa-Bredt was yesterday put to rest at Lusaka’s Makeni suburb.
The burial service was attended by First Lady Esther Lungu, Minister of Transport, Works, Supply and Communication Yamfwa Mukanga, CCZ general secretary Suzanne Matale and hundreds of other mourners.
The church service was held at the United Church of Zambia (UCZ) St Paul’s congregation in Kabwata.
Rev Sampa-Bredt, who was also former Patriotic Front Chawama member of Parliament, died last Sunday in Germany where she was being treated for cancer.
She was a lawmaker from 2006 to 2011 and was the first female to serve as CCZ general secretary.
