SENIOR Chief Mweemba’s grandson Mubita Mubita who died after the chief’s palace was petrol-bombed recently was yesterday buried in Sinazongwe.
And the Government has assured residents of Sinazongwe in Senior Chief Mweemba’s area of adequate security.
Sinazongwe District Commissioner Protacial Mulenga said during the burial that the petrol-bombing of the palace was inhuman and should never be allowed to happen again.
