PEOPLE STARTED DYING WHEN MICHEAL SATA BECAME THE PRESIDENT OF OUR BELOVED COUNTRY.
HE IS A SATANIST AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE ACCIDENTS.
ONE THING IS FOR SURE…………
——ON JUDGEMENT DAY HE WILL SEE THAT GOD IS GOD.
SHAME ON US ZAMBIANS FOR EVEN THINKING OF ELECTING SUCH A DICTATOR……
LOOK AT ALL THE CRAP HE IS MAKING US GO THROUGH,
WE NEED TO START PRAYING HARD FOR HEAVEN TO SHAKE THIS MAN OF THAT THRONE BEFORE HE CLAIMS MORE LIVES.
O GOD OF JACOB!!!!!!! HELP ME US!!
HELP US AND SAVE OUR BELOVED COUNTRY.
My people perish because of lack of knowledge. To be honest more than 50% of vehicles on Zambian roads are defective. The sad part is that reconditioned vehicles from Japan are not tested and safetied upon arrival in Zambia and a good number of them are not fit to be on roads despite how good they look. Most Zambians do not fear driving defective vehicles they would rather avoid traffic officers or bribe officers to be set free at the expense of their on lives. Speeding on bad roads, passing driver’s licence by bribe, drunk or certain medical drugs lead to accidents. The list can go on. MPs & political leaders are busy calling names at one another instead of finding solution like the above one and poverty. Before God, would you tell Him that it is Sata the cause of road accidents.
Blaming wrongly! Think about the increased number of vehicles on the roads, third or sixth hand vehicles we are importing, poor or lack of proper vehicle maintenance, bad driving practices like drink driving, driving long distances without proper rest, no respect for road rules by drivers, can you blame your president for all such. Some analysis of issues can really be crazy!
yello, mushota…its boring you same and similar stories. how about a ka simple flirt…flirting is never boring as it involves hormones arousal….
This is Sad but I do not agree that its the presidents fault. Lets work together on road safety for all, drivers need to be less zealous and lets make sure we preserve life by increasing vehicle safety standards.
So sorry to the families for their loss.
blood sucker defending a vampire!
Sata should concentrate such development in MUchinga and nothern or the like, he is not welcome in civilised areas.
“The police spokesperson said the accident happened around 04:30 hours as the driver of the Marcopolo bus, coming from Mpulungu, was trying to overtake the Canter which was coming from the opposite direction”.
How do you overtake a vehicle coming from the opposite direction?
My question exactly!
The police spokesperson said the accident happened around 04:30 hours as the driver of the Marcopolo bus, coming from Mpulungu, was trying to overtake the Canter which was coming from the opposite direction. ………………How is this possible, overtaking a vehicle coming from opposite direction?
The quality of Drivers that we have is really questionable more especially the Drivers between 20 to 30 years bracket need to be properly tested to be Driving Busses.There is alot of corruption in the way they obtain their Driving Licenses.
welcome to zambia where we overtake on coming cars
