POMP and aplomb yesterday characterized the burial of Zambian artiste, George Mulowa, commonly known as Shimpanzi who died on Tuesday at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) after suffering from kidney complications.
Mulowa was put to rest at Mutumbi Cemetery in Lusaka and his burial ceremony drew people from all walks of life with fellow musicians thronging to pay their last respects to their departed colleague.
After body viewing, the artistes gathered around his casket and sung some of his songs as well as other gospel songs, rolling back his years in the music industry where he gave the Zambian music audience nice jams they danced along to.
Meanwhile, reports reaching The Scoop suggest that Mulowa’s house in Emmasdale was ransacked by thieves a night before his death while he was battling for his final hours of his life.
The thieves are said to have taken advantage of the fact that there was no one at home, broke in and stole some household valuables.
