Wina Leads Hundreds in Putting to Rest SA Accident Victims

Acting President Inonge Wina led hundreds of mourners at the Cathedral of the Child Jesus in putting to rest Zambians who died in a road traffic accident in South Africa.

And Wina says the Zambian government will never walk away from the plight of Zambians in life or death and at home or abroad.

She also wished those that sustained injuries a quick recovery.

Eleven Zambians died in Mokapane, Limpopo Province in South Africa in a road accident involving Royal Bus Services.

And Wina has praised Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, Emmanuel Mwamba and his staff for the prompt response and effective coordination of the entire episode.

The Zambian acting President also thanked President Cyril Ramaphosa, President of the Republic of South Africa and the Limpopo provincial government  for the  help rendered to the both the deceased and those admitted to hospitals.

She said that government would ensure that continued help to the family was rendered until peace is restored after the loss of their beloved ones.

Wina said that President Edgar Lungu was affected by the tragedy and sent his deepest condolences to the bereaved families and the entire nation.

    Much as this is a sad moment for the country, and especially for close relatives and friends to the departed, there was no need to turn it into a national event. The departed were not on national duty when the unfortunate tragedy struck and that’s why there was no justification for the government to give them an official funeral. This is a fact and people might not like it but money has been spent that shouldn’t have been used this way.
