A train in Lusaka has run over a man between Ngwerere and Kabanana townships.The unidentified man believed to be between the ages of 30 and 35 has since died.

In a statement released today by Zambia Police spokesperson Charity Chanda said the incident happened this morning.

“When the police rushed to the scene he was still alive but had lost both legs and died as he was being taken to the hospital by police officers,” she said.

Ms Chanda said investigations into the matter have been instituted to establish whether the deceased was beaten and thrown on the rail line or it was a mere accident.

  1. What is this now…Whenever there is an accident involving vehicles, then a train accident follows with 24 hrs literally in the same areas.

    A fuso truck in Mazabuka and a train in Kafue.

    Now its a bus in Chibombo and a train in Kabanana!

    We need to pray very hard ladies and gentlemen!!

    • PRAY FOR WHAT @1. OUR TRAINS TRAVEL AT A MAXIMUM SPEED OF 30KM/H WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO PRAY FOR. RAIL LINES MUST BE SHIELDED AWAY SO THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ANY ONE OR ANIMALS TO GET NEAR TO THE LINES. IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE IF NOT ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE HERE FOR ONE TO BE RUN OVER BY A TRAIN UNLESS THAT PERSON HAS PLANNED TO COMMIT SUICIDE. RAIL LINES IN ZAMBIA ARE CROSSED BY HUMANS AND ANIMALS AT ANY GIVEN POINT

  2. To hit by a ZRL can only mean that one either drunk or blind and deaf or all of the above…. those faulty locomotives barely do 5 miles/ hr.

  3. Zambia is porous concerning entry of illegal immigants. Imagine there is NO check points 10km from each border entry in Zambia. In TZ they put check point every 5km from the border and 10km to check illegal immigrates. The GVT should put back these check points or else Al Shabab will enter Zambia

  5. ‘The man was still alive when police arrived to take him to the hospital’. The question is, how well equipped for the purposes of applying first aid are Zambia police when attending the injured at the scene of accident?
    Secondly, in Zambia you never hear of ambulances rushing to where an accident has occurred, does this mean that even Lusaka has no basic reliable emergency services? With well trained police and ambulance crews many lives would be saved.

    • Zambian ambulances only attend to maternity cases in between hospitals and UTH sorry ALL other emergencies are not relevant to them. I dare you to try it, call them and say you have a medical emergency at your house NOTHING will happen….nada. They will even tell you we cant never come to your house.
