Zambian Coffin Sellers To Move From Hospital To Graveyard

Zambian coffin sellers have until March to move their wares away from a hospital in the country’s capital, Lusaka, in a report by Daily Mail

Lusaka Mayor, Miles Sampa, said the coffin sellers would be relocated to the graveyards if they failed to move.


Before now, the traders had been conducting business outside the University Teaching Hospital where they opened shops outside close to the mortuary.

Patients and their relatives are reported to have complained to the local authorities, prompting the ultimatum.

Mayor Sampa was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying the coffin sellers were depressing patients, making it hard for them to recover.

He advised that they had found an alternative location for their shops or be relocated to graveyards.
