Inglis was laid to rest at her home in Chitakale in Mulanje with thousands of mourners, largely from the football fraternity, paying their last respect.

Nyamilandu who described Inglis as the “love of my life, my soul of my heart” braved the shoulder chest pains he sustained in the accident to give his fiancé a decent burial.
