Six people have died while others have been injured in an accident which occurred around 07:00 hours on the Mwense-Mansa road in Luapula Province.

The accident happened when the driver of the Scorpion bus tried to avoid a pothole but went and collided with an oncoming rider.

Zambia Police public relations officer Esther Katongo has confirmed the deaths.

The rider died on the spot together with five passengers who were trapped in the bus.
“Involved was a Zhong Tong bus registration number AIB 3978 property of VIDA Logistics Transport of Ndola which was being driven by Kendrick Simusokwe of Kitwe who is among the seriously injured and admitted to Mwense Hospital,” Mrs Katongo has stated.

The number of the injured passengers has not yet been established and are admitted to both Mansa and Mwense Hospitals.”

    Substandard journalism “rider” not well defined! Too many accidents and while state of the roads could be contributing, the intelligence of drivers and all road users is suspect and complicit! Gone are the days when public passenger vehicles had speed limits pasted on them and public responsibility would alert the next nearest traffic control office of any observed threat encountered on the road while traveling!

    I was heartbroken that my husband moved in with another woman so I had a spell to bring him back home and stop the affair he had with her. In just 1 week he left her and went to live at the motel. He called to say so and get news of the kids. The discussion was pleasant as if he was changing to become the man I knew when we got married. It was exactly as you said…. Now he’s back home and is absolutely crazy about me. I am so thrilled by this spell that I can’t find the right words to say how I feel right now. All I can decently say is that you changed my life and saved the most important thing in my life and my family.
