General News Two RCC workers repairing the cut off Maamba/Batooka injured ...

Two people from the Road Construction Company (RCC) are battling for their lives in Maamba Hospital when the culvert they were working on along the Maamba/Batooka road in Sinazongwe district collapsed and buried them.

The incident occurred on Monday at Mweezhya where the culvert collapsed following the floods that cut off the entire Sinazongwe district from the rest of the country.

One of the RCC workers at the accident scene Febias Chibilika said three of them escaped unhurt.
Mr. Chibilika said the top layer of the culvert collapsed on them while they were trying to dry the water so that they could repair it temporarily to allow traffic to start passing.

He said the top layers of the soil buried his two colleagues Loyd Chami and Nerbart Siabana.
Mr. Febias Milandu one of the workers for RCC said heavy rocks collapsed on them adding that quick response from his other workmates rescued them from perishing.

A Check by ZANIS at the hospital found that Chami has a dislocation on the collar borne, fractured ribs and was in pain while Siabana had a fractured arm.
Road development Agency has contracted RCC and China Geo Corporation to do the emergent repair works on the damagwed and culverts by floods along Maamba Batooka road.
