The South African High Commission in Zambia has disclosed that it is in talks with the Zambian government on that country’s intention to exhume and repatriate the remains of some struggle icons buried in Zambia.

Speaking when he paid a courtesy call on Her Worship, the Mayor of Lusaka, Ms. Chilando Chitangala this afternoon, South African High Commissioner to Zambia GN Twala has implored the Zambian councils to help in providing information that would lead to the speedy implementation of the repatriation exercise.

Mr. Twala said this undertaking is meant to preserve South Africa’s political history as well as cement ties with neighbouring countries like Zambia that played a pivotal role during the apartheid era.

He also said the possibility of marking the graves of the heroes instead of repatriation may be considered by the team on the mission, depending on the information available.

He said his team plans to visit all the cemeteries that have information related to the remains to be exhumed and repatriated.

The High Commissioner’s team included forensic archaeologists who will assist in gathering crucial information regarding the operation.

And Lusaka Mayor, Her Worship, Ms. Chilando Chitangala has assured the delegation that the council will provide assistance towards conducting the exercise.

Ms. Chitangala has also expressed her desire for the Commissioner’s office to erect monuments of South African freedom heroes, in order to educate and inspire younger generations.
