Opposition Forum For Democracy and Development FDD president Edith Nawakwi has paid tribute to the victims of the Mazabuka and Kafue road accidents and has since sent her condolences to the bereaved families.
The opposition leader said she learnt of the untimely death of so many people with a great sense of shock and anguish due to the circumstances in which she reckoned could have been avoided.
“It is with a deep sense of shock and anguish that we learnt of the untimely deaths of so many people in circumstances that could have been avoided. We pray that the bereaved families find strength and solace in Christ.
Death is a mystery that is always difficult to understand but it is a reality that all humanity has to live with hence. This painful loss should remind all of us that we live with death therefore, we ought to put our hope and faith in Christ at all times.”
Ms. Nawakwi further requested that RATSA and other relevant authorities do an audit on what has gone wrong with the country’s road network and investigate the causes of the continued road carnage leading to the rise in the loss of lives in the country.
The FDD leader also appealed to well wishers including the church,neighbors and other stakeholders to come to the aid of the bereaved families.
