  1. Rest in eternal peace Br Mabila and Br Stanley. You have run your race, you have fought a good fight.

    Condolences to the Franciscan Fathers, to Mabila Augustine Mutale’s family and Stanley Mukuka’s family.

  2. condolences to the Catholic mission and to relatives of the deceased. For the car to overtun like that speed was a contributing factor. Alchohol could have played a part too knowing that ba Katotika balitemwa tubwala. Zambians should learn to observe speed limit which we don’t have marked on the roads. Ou roads are so bad that drivers should not gamble their lives by speeding.

  3. MMd has killed them..the road network is very pathetic..they are busy stealing money and buying suits ..how do their souls rest in peace..the souls have gone back to the onwer..they are just bodies now..too bad that innocent and well meaning lives have been lost..they must have been very promising Zambians..MMD is to blame for poor roads..

  4. I HAVE TRAVELLED ON THE MUTANDA – MWINILUNGA ROAD SEVERAL TIMES AND I CAN CONFIRM THAT ITS ANOTHER ‘HELL RUN’.I REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT DEVELOPMENT MR.SHIKAPWASHA TALKS ABOUT IF THEY EVEN FAIL TO PATCH-UP POT-HOLES ON THAT ROAD.IT TOOK US 5-HOURS TO TAVEL THAT STRETCH OF 148KM. MAY THE PRIEST’S SOULS REST IN ERTERNAL PEACE!
