President of Zambia, Edgar Lungu, has joined the bemoaning of the passing away of a  fish that lived in the pond of Copperbelt University, Zambia’s second largest university.

The fish was named ‘Mafishi’ meaning ‘Big Fish’ and students of Copperbelt believed it gave them good luck in examination for the past 20 years.

Students at Copperbelt University (CBU) lit candles and marched around campus to mourn the big fish.

Latest person to join the trend of mourning ‘Mafishi’ is president Edgar Lungu.

Leader of the university’s student union said the death of the fish is being investigated.

“It is yet to be buried, we are planning on embalming it,” Mr Kasonde told the BBC.

“Some students used to pay homage to the fish before exams, believing it brought them good luck while others saw it as a stress-reliever”, says BBC Zambia reporter Kennedy Gondwe.
