Government has taken over the burial arrangements for the thirty two people who died in the Mufulira-Mokambo bus accident on Friday last week.

Kitwe District Commissioner Chanda Kabwe said government will also provide necessary logistics required by the bereaved families.

Mr Kabwe was speaking in Mufulira during a meeting with families of the deceased held at the civic centre.

AND Mufulira District Commissioner Hildah Mwansa said the remains of the deceased will be buried in a mass grave since they cannot identified.

Thirty two people were burnt to death after the scania bus from Kitwe to Luwingu overturned and burst into flames along the pedicle road.

The accident happened around 12:50 hours on the pedicle road, about 20 Kilometres from the Mokambo border post.
