Government through the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit (DMMU) will provide coffins for all the 14 Luangwa bus accident victims.


Chief Government Spokesperson Mwansa Kapeya says government will also provide food and transport to take the bodies to their respective places for burial around the country.


Mr Kapeya who is also Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services said out of 10 bodies that have so far been identified by the relatives at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) mortuary, two will be buried in Chipata, one in Petauke, four in Lusaka and three in Ndola.


He said families of the other four bodies are yet to advise government where burial for the deceased will take place.


Mr Kapeya said in a statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today that government is with the believed families even as they go through this trying moment.
