    Fact here is the vehicle was ridiculously overloaded making it dangerous for vehicle stability. Therefore the driver should be charged for overloading and careless driving and causing an accident leading to loss of lives as there was failure to obey the law.
    @ Bashikulu Em2a compensating the families is the right thing to do beginning with bearing all funeral costs then engaging families on compensation. However I am skeptical of it ever happening and wonder why there are no lawyers able to seize opportunities that broaden understanding individual rights! Prisoners are as human as any person outside the walls of prison and for government to fail in providing for prisons is gross negligence! Imagine 39 people packed in a Spotero! Families could sue government, but where are the lawyers? Oh! I am forgetting that lawyers are fueled by money earning by the hour at too exorbitant charges.

    Prisons driver should be charged for this together with his supervisor who ordered the transportation of this overloaded van.

    Too sad for the untimely death of our brothers. MTSRIP


    I seek clarification here. Were all the 39 traveling in a Mitsubishi Spotero? If yes, the vehicle was loaded to more than what its capacity could stand. Hence, tire burst

  13. Not true

    Sad development but were is the driver
