Vice president Guy Scott has refuted assertions suggesting that the Patriotic Front (PF) government has ignored the funeral of the late Litunga’s wife Mulako who was the Queen of the Barotse Royal Establishment.
Dr. Scott says contrary to some reports, his office for example is working hand in hand with the Barotse Royal Establishment to make arrangements for the late Litunga’s wife’s funeral and that government does not expect any hiccups.
Dr. Scott has disclosed to Qfm news in a telephone interview this morning that among other things that government has organized resources for is her coffin, aircrafts to be used today and that the Zambia National Service (ZNS) and the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit (DMMU) are working on the burial site of the late Litunga’s wife.
The Vice president says others working on the burial site include the Mongu Local Authority as well as the provincial administration.
He says this is why assertions that the PF government and President Michael Sata in particular have ignored the funeral of the late Litunga’s wife are complete falsehood.
And Dr. Scott has urged Media Houses in the country to avoid basing their queries for him to respond to on reports being published by anonymous media institutions that are allegedly bent on causing embarrassment to individuals.
He says the media should base their queries on facts that they themselves have investigated.
