Mourners from all walks of life today trooped to Mulungushi International Conference in Lusaka to pay their last respects to late President Michael Sata as today marked the end of body viewing for the general public.
A check by QFM News crew at Mulungushi International Conference Centre today found a queue of people had lengthened from outside the main gate of the conference centre, while other people were still flocking to the centre.
The late President’s remains have been lying in state in the main conference hall of the Mulungushi International Conference since 1st November 2014.
