    • @ Nostradamus…..Using electricity then Zesco does their load-shedding in mid of cremation. Then the rest of the mourners disperse leaving a few behind, waiting for a minimum of eight hours for power to be restored. lol

  6. WE HAVE MISSED AN OPPORTUNITY TO RESERVE LAND FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. WHEN YOU ARE DEAD IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT MODE YOU ARE IN. DUST TO DUST, ASHES TO ASHES.

    LCC NEEDS TO PROVIDE A PLATFORM WHERE WE HAVE AN OPTION FOR THOSE OF US WHO WANT TO BURN.
