THE five firefighters who died in a road traffic accident on the Chirundu-Kafue Road on Saturday night will be put to rest at Memorial Park Cemetery in Lusaka tomorrow, Deputy minister of Local Government and Housing Nicolas Banda has said.
Mr Banda said the fire fighters were working for Chirundu District Council but were from different towns – Kalulushi, Kitwe, Mufulira, and Lusaka – so it was decided that they be buried in one place.
The deceased five are Godfrey Kamalondo, Lackson Simukonda, Oscar Kaula, Happy Mwansa and Lackson Sinkamba.
“The state took up the funeral expenses and burial arrangements. It was decided that all the bodies be buried at a singular point, which is in Lusaka,” said Mr Banda.
