HOME Affairs Deputy Minister Misheck Bonshe has died. Home Affairs Minister Lameck Mangani, who confirmed the death of Mr Bonshe in an interview, said Mr Bonshe, who was Mufumbwe Member of Parliament, died in Nigeria yesterday.
Mr Mangani described the death of Mr Bonshe as shocking and that his contribution and service to the nation would be missed.
He said the Government was making arrangements to bring the body back home, and that the nation would be informed once the arrangements had been finalised.
