And Vincent Mulenga Catechist at Mukwikile Sub-Parish said God called President Sata to lead the Nation so that the Country could be delivered from extreme poverty and that lives may be improved especially among the poorest in the country.
Mr. Mulenga said that the next President who will be elected should emulate the fearless leadership which was possessed by late President Michael Sata.
Meanwhile, Patriotic Front officials in Shiwang`andu have called on Government to consider mounting big screen televisions in areas that have no ZNBC TV signal and tap the signal from satellite to enable people watch the burial for the late President Sata.
Shiwang`andu Constituency Chairlady Maurine Bwembya said that the big screens will be of more advantage if mounted in districts where there is no ZNBC TV reception because in many provincial capitals they have ZNBC TV signals and they can watch the funeral in public place.
