A concerned citizen asks:
Why was Dr F Manda not given a state funeral yet Nsanda was? Not even a national mourning time. Who contributed to national well being Dr Manda or Nsanda. Or is state funeral for politicians only?
Urologist Francis Manda, who died on Friday was put to rest at Leopards Hill Memorial Park in Lusaka.
According to Dr Manda’s son, Kunda, the burial will be preceded by a doctors’ professional ceremony at the University Teaching Hospital’s (UTH) main auditorium at 10:30 hours and a requiem mass at Saint Ignatius Catholic Church at 13:00 hours.
Dr Manda is survived by six children: Kunda, Mwelwa, Norman, Meya, Mercy and Philemon.
Dr Manda is the former husband of gender minister Nkandu Luo.
