Confusion persists in the discovery of a man whose face was eaten by rats at Mansa General Hospital Mortuary.
This time the family that has been refusing to bury the remains of their 20 year old were incensed when a pathologist failed to show up for postmortem.
The emotional relatives of the deceased nearly engaged in physical confrontation with police officers that were deployed to calm the situation because they suspect the absence of the Pathologist is an attempt by authorities to compel the family to bury the body without addressing circumstances in the matter.
However, management at the hospital claims the Pathologist, who is Lusaka- based, could not make it to Mansa via Pedicle Road which is in a deplorable state.
