    @Chizle the God, it is idiocity to pass jokes on serious issues such as funerals in an African context, worse still that man was a leader with a family and relatives, how will they feel to read your comments? You loose nothing by being honest with yourself…

    You will never be a ‘future president’ unless you learn to distinguish between ‘loose’ and ‘lose’. Do not blog to just embarrass yourself.

    His Minister of Health and F-uc-k-son Shamenda are retards who have led to UTH and others’ nurses’ strikes. Patrick’s death could as well have been avoided if those two did not cause that crisis (real headache for a pro like Chikusus). Another cargo on SAA. MHSRIP working minister.

    Please .No soul rest in peace.How could he rest in peace when he is covered in the soil?Then if its so let go and unearth those we have buried so that they get fresh air.

    When we die,the body decompose in the ground that is if you bury the dead.The breath goes back to the own GOD.Remember that the Breath plus + the body = Soul a living thing or a being.

    Ba Chikusu rest in peace. Your death is a big loss but it has left me VERY VERY ANGRY:
    1. My D/Minister of Health gets admitted not to any GRZ hospital but to Coptic (Private)
    2. My D/Minister dies in a private SA clinic but not public hospital or even private hospital in Zambia
    3. The body of my D/Minister will be flown into the country straight to some private mogue.
    Fellow countrymen, we are being fooled. Enough is enough. Foolishness is refusing to read the signs of the time and learning from them and then acting on the lessons learnt to improve our predicament.
