    Many zambians are dieing in south Africa it seems like south Africans don’t want zambians in their country its better they say so that zambians can back off from their country here south Africans are respected so I don’t think it’s safe for zambians to live there

    Is postmortem only done in Zambia?
    The person died along the street and later deposited in a mortuary awaiting burial! Without clear evidence on what caused the death.
    Please responsible people need to look into such matters.
