Eight Heads of State to attend Sata’s burial-Kalaba

Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba has disclosed that eight Heads of State have confirmed to attend President Sata’s burial on 11th November 2014.
Should they come, it will be the first time in three years that Zambia will receive a Head of State apart from Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe.
Among the leaders to attend are Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe who was a close ally of President Sata, Joseph Kabila of Congo DR, Uhuru Kenyata of Kenya and Hifikepunya Pohamba of Namibia.
Others are Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Malawi’s Peter Wamutharika.
Tanzania will send the vice president while South Africa’s Jacob Zuma will only send his wife to represent him.
Guy Scott had recently told parliament that eight heads of state had confirmed to attend Zambia’s golden jubilee independence celebration but none of them attended the event.
