Details of the burial arrangements will be announced later to the general public.

  1. Condolences to the family. this is one reason why PF should stop wasting money and invest in health rather than sending people to India just to come a die a week later at UTH. with good medical facilities, this tumor could have been detected early and operated on. but then why did UTH not operate on him?

  2. meanwhile the head of state is busy flying. People let us get it right by now that since chiluba, presidents have been flying claiming that they are going to bring investors. By now we can see how that has worked for Zambia. The real investors are not here because our president traveled. e.g Lumwana mines owned by australians, no president traveled to australia to bring them to Zambia. So this trip ku Israel ya tourism fye and nothing tangible to benefit a poor zambian.
    Had we spent this travel money on UTH, by buying equipment and improve man power and training these deaths would be diagnosed quickly and prevented

  3. There is no cure for death. We should just prepare most especially spiritually by being ‘born again’ in Christ Jesus.
