What a loss to the Zambian Society!! Go well Bishop, Zambia now needs strict measures for this thing, twalapwa, yaambo kusenda nabapatili sure that have a natural social distancing order!!
That’s very sad. This Covid 19 is real and people are getting infected and are dying daily. The Coronavirus knows no Tribe,Religion,Race,Political Party etc. The biggest problem among blacks is Secrey or lack of disclosure on Covid 19 infections.Unless there is improvement in Contact Tracing and Testing infections and death will spike. Let’s hope this disease will soon come to pass so that People can have a normal life. May the Bishops Soul Rest in Peace.
Terrible. Big loss to the Catholic flock.
When the day comes,no matter what measures you put in it will come to pass but thanks be to God because the dead depending on how they spend their day while on earth will be raised again and have ertenal life. The man has run his race , condolences to the family and the church.

The African Conference of Catholic Bishops was highly against the pro vaccine narrative. I wouldn’t doubt for a minute that big pharma or their evil minions had something to do with his death. RIP.
