Catherine Kasavuli succumbed to cancer after a long battle with the deadly disease.

CS Namwaba noted that the government needs to do more than what is being done to beat cancer.

"We have to do more as a government in the fight against cancer; we have to invest more at the diagnostic level in order to identify it and deal with it before it becomes a monster," Namwamba said.

Several other leaders attended the burial ceremony of the deceased journalist, including Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula and several others from different parts of the country.
