  1. Let the widow accompany the body you were here only last week with Kankasa now escort up to the airport and then his body will be met in Livingstone on arrival…please don’t stretch the over stretched budget paid for by the tax payers…

  2. Isn’t Emmanuel Mwamba a High Commissioner? Doesn’t he have a press person to do the communication? Seems he is a saint anne funeral polour of south Africa performing on behalf of Zambians. In short, Malukula.
    We cant afford to have him travelling every now and then. Government should emulate business entities who are busy cutting costs not unecesary travels at the expense of tax payers.
    This man, awe sure.
