By A Correspondent- Bulawayo City Council (BCC) has suspended burials at the Athlone West cemetery after a grave-digging machine broke down.

According to council sources, all burials in the city are now being conducted at Luveve cemetery.

The sources attributed the breakdown of the machine to the increased number of burials which is being fuelled by the spike in covid-19 related deaths.

Said the source:

“The grave digging machine broke down and council has not been burying bodies at Athlone West cemetery. All burials are now being conducted at Luveve cemetery.”
