‘Zambians feel insecure,unsafe’

By NATION REPORTER

THE endemic high cost of living, the looming hunger, the malice of the political elite against the governed coupled with the worst cholera outbreak ever which saw the state bury victims without funerals has undermined and threatened the country’s peace and security, His Grace Archbishop De Alick Banda has said.

The Archbishop of Lusaka says the endemic high cost of living, the looming hunger, the malice of the political elite against the governed coupled with the worst cholera outbreak ever which saw the state bury victims without funerals has undermined and threatened the country’s peace and security.

Archbishop Dr Banda particularly bemoaned that, due to information management challenges Government buried unaccounted for victims of the cholera outbreak without the knowledge and consent of their relatives, an act that has caused deep distress and trauma in communities.

“This outbreak has claimed many lives of our people and has left trails of emotional, mental and spiritual distress. There has been a challenge with information management of the sick and subsequently the dead, who have been buried anonymously, and without a funeral. Unsuspecting families, have only come to learn of the fate of their loved ones, long after they have been buried without their knowledge and consent. What a trauma! And how to cope with such a tragedy,” Archbishop Dr Banda said.  Dr Banda, says Zambia has reached a point where citizens are getting more agitated with tempers flaring within themselves, the emotions which have become a threat to the safety and security of the nation and its people.CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
