Zambian Student who died in Ukraine war to be buried today


Zambian student Lemekhani Nyirenda who died last year while fighting for Russian forces in Ukraine is due to be buried today.

Nyirenda was serving a drugs-related prison sentence in Russia but was freed on condition of signing up and then deployed to the front lines in Ukraine and he died in September.

The burial will take place in Rufunsa district, Eastern Zambia, six weeks after his body arrived in the country.

Nyirenda’s mother, Florence told a farewell church gathering in the capital Lusaka that she will miss her son who was the last born in the family of four.

“I will miss my son’s naughtiness which i enjoyed so much,” She said.

Family spokesperson Ian Banda thanked the government for the support given during this trying moment.
