We are asking our good president to send a good number of delegates , Zambia is very near and the president can afford to hire buses and minibuses to escort our president to go and attend The Late Sata Chilufya funeral , he should not worry about the foreign currency , there is plenty of Zambian Kwacha which he can change at Mchinji border.
