CHIMWEMWE MWALE, Lusaka
A COPPERBELT University (CBU) lecturer has been found dead in his room in China where he was a Doctor of Philosophy scholar at Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs public relations officer Dorcas Chileshe said the lecturer has been identified as Coster Mwaba, 51.
Mrs Chileshe said in an interview yesterday the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is saddened by the death of Mr Mwaba whose body was found in his room last week, 10 days after he had died.
“Mr Mwaba died in his room and his death was only known after 10 days on September 2, 2016.  Zambia’s Ambassador to China Winnie Chibesakunda has said the Zambian Embassy in China is collaborating with CBU management and the family of the late Mr Mwaba to facilitate arrangements to dispatch the body to Zambia for burial,” Mrs Chileshe said.
Mr Mwaba is survived by a wife and three children.
