Justice Minister Ngosa Simbyakula and Deputy Secretary to Cabinet Peter Kasanda.
Others who saw off the Head of State include service chiefs, deputy ministers and some senior party official.

The ruling Patriotic Front has since adopted Mr. Simbao as its candidate for the Senga Hill parliamentary by-election.
