Kitwe Mayor Kelvin Sinyangwe has bought coffins and various food stuffs for the funeral of a 43-year-old woman and her two children who died on Monday in Mulenga Township after the house in which they were sleeping was burnt to the ground.
On Monday, the 43-year-old woman and her two children, aged four and two, tragically died in Kitwe when the house in they were sleeping burnt to ashes.
Mr Sinyangwe said he had to buy the coffins and foodstuffs because he was deeply touched at the loss of three lives in an inferno.
He was speaking on Tuesday at the funeral house when he handed over the three coffins and various foodstuffs.
Mr Sinyangwe, who is Patriotic Front (PF) Kafue ward councillor, said the loss of human life was always tragic and sad, hence it was important that people joined efforts in helping the bereaved family.
“As a city father, as a Mayor of Kitwe, I decided to buy the coffins and foodstuffs for this funeral where we lost three people in an inferno.
“As human beings, it is always reasonable to help each other when we are faced with such tragic moments,” Mr Sinyangwe said.
The woman and her two children were buried yesterday at Chamboli cemetery.
