Kampyongo worried about diminishing burial spaces

General News Kampyongo worried about diminishing burial spaces

KampyongoGovernment says it is deeply concerned with the small burial space that has remained at Leopards Hill and Chunga cemeteries in Lusaka.

Minister of Local Government and Housing Steven Kampyongo has since directed the Lusaka City Council (LCC) to expedite the process of indenting a new burial site for the residents of Lusaka.

Mr. Kampyongo said Leopards Hill and Chunga cemeteries are almost filled up hence the need for the local authority to treat the matter of finding an alternative burial site with urgency.

He said this in Lusaka today shortly after a tour of Chunga and Leopards Hill cemeteries this morning.

Mr. Kampyongo, who was accompanied by Lusaka Town Clerk Alex Mwansa and senior council officials, also toured the Chunga solid waste dumpsite.

He has appealed to the Lusaka City Council to work closely with the local authorities in the surrounding districts of Chilanga, Chibombo, Kafue and Chisamba during the process of finding a new burial site.

And Mr. Kampyongo has urged the council to computerise the documentation of the decease persons’ details for effective tracing of information for both government and their families.

Meanwhile, Lusaka Town Clerk Alex Mwansa assured Mr. Kampyongo that the local authority was working hard to urgently address the matter of finding an alternative burial site.

Mr. Mwansa also said the council was exploring various ways of finding a burial site.

He said among the options was the possibility of having a shared cemetery with the surrounding districts.

  1. Presidents should set the example on cremation. Lungu should tell his family to cremate him. Don’t follow Chiluba Sata and mwanawasa in taking up big space when lusaka has no more land

  2. They wait until the burial places are filled for them to think of an alternative. They shud have thot about it some years back or shud hav even opened one or two.

  3. They wait until the burial places are filled for them to think of an alternative. They shud have thot about it some years back when there ws plenty of land and shud hav even opened one or two burial places.

  4. I’m in the crematorium field and should the Zambia government require my assistance with crematoriums which are the best route to go especially when land is at a premium I will gladly assist.
