She died on the 13th of October 2010 in St Charles's Hospital in London where her body is still in the mortuary.The hospital details have no known relative or next of kin.

Two officials from the Zambian Embassy UK in the presence of a London based close Zambian female and a Zambian male friend of the late Maureen and me, today entered Maureens home. Also present was a representative from owners of the property. The access to the property was to try and retrieve valuable documents that can facilitate the possible repatriation of the body to Zambia. In the flat was a lot of her personal latest valuable goods. Most of them in very good condition. Parked outside the flat was a slick silver CLK Mercedes sports car she owned. Her passport has been found and some mail which might help with bank details. The Embassy is in touch with authorities here and her relative in Chongwe, Lusaka and might supervise the smooth transportation of the body and her goods to Zambia if there is enough funds for that in her account. The Embassy does not fund for any transportation of goods or human remains anywhere. More update here as soon as its available. Uncle Ronnie

The Council wants the house to be surrendered. The packer asked to do an assessment requested to be paid £5,400 for packing the household goods. Since there is no money at disposal, The reliable staff at Zambia House decided to do the packing manually themselves and bring the items to the Mission for safe keeping while other modalities are being worked out. Efforts are being made to try and locate any of her savings to finance the disposal of the body. Any disposal option costs around £3,000 or more. The processes required seem to be taking long because she left no will and the procedures are quite tedious without a family member as next of keen. The members of staff involved at the Embassy intend to continue the parking on Tuesday next week if the Tenancy Manager will be available.
