The Lusaka City Council LCC has called on members of the public to cooperate with people managing burial sites whenever they are allocated places to bury their loved ones.

Mr. Sichimba says the local authority is doing everything possible to help bereaved families bury their loved ones according to the burial spaces that can be found at the two operational graveyards which he says are also full.

He told ZANIS in an exclusive interview that the Chunga graveyard has been completely closed while Chingwere and Leopards Hill cemeteries which are being used only has infuse spaces between old graves.

There has been concerns from members of the public over the shortage of burial spaces in Lusaka where bereaved families are using small spaces between old graves to bury their loved ones while others are allegedly burying on top of old graves.


You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God.
