Movement for Multi-Party Democracy (MMD) President Dr. Nevers Sekwila Mumba wishes to convey heartfelt condolences, first of all to the families of the six Hillcrest Technical Secondary School students who perished in a tragic road traffic accident along the Livingstone – Choma road during the night of Friday 17th June, 2016. He further wishes to convey sincere condolences to the school administration and entire student body on the tragic loss of these young lives.
Hillcrest Technical Secondary School is very dear to Dr. Mumba as he was a student at this prestigious school from 1974 to 1978 for his Form 1 to Form 5 secondary school education and is aware that students who qualify to enter this school are among the cream from around the country. It is for this reason that this loss assumes such gravity as it has robbed the country of potential future leaders of distinction.
Dr. Mumba joins all Zambians in mourning these students and pray for God’s comfort for their kith and kin as they pass through this dark cloud and may the souls of the dear departed rest in peace.
Prayers and thoughts continue to be with the injured students and wish all of them God’s strength and quick recovery.
