THREE United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres have died in a fatal road traffic accident in Munyumbwe area of Gwembe District, Southern Province Commissioner of Police Godwin Phiri has said.
Meanwhile, 62 UPND cadres have sustained serious injuries on Sunday after being involved in a road traffic accident.
Mr Phiri said the three cadres, whose names were yet to be established, met their fate yesterday morning (Monday) as they were being ferried in a canter to a Public Rally in Munyumbwe.
He said two males and one female were reported to be dead while 17 were injured and treated.
Mr Phiri said the police were on the ground to get more details over the matter.
In another development, Mr Phiri said 62 UPND cadres sustained serious injuries in Mazabuka after being involved in a road traffic accident.
Mr Phiri said the cadres were returning to Chief Mwanachingwala on Sunday after attending a Public Rally addressed by UPND president Hakainde Hichilema.
He said the accident occurred around 17:50 hours along Sikabanze road, Zambia Sugar Estate in Mazabuka and it involved a Tata truck with registration number AAT 3518.
The truck was coming from East to West and it was being driven by unknown driver of unknown age, address and names.
“The accident occurred when the driver lost control of his vehicle due to overloading of passengers.
“As he was turning right, his vehicle’s left wing flipped open and passengers fell in the Zambia Sugar Estate Canal,” he said.
Mr Phiri said about 62 passengers, who were UPND cadres, were returning from a Public Rally and they sustained serious injuries.
“The accident victims received treatment at Mazabuka Hospital. The driver is on the run and the vehicle had its right wing damaged.
This use of cadres is wrong for each and every party. Also you cadres why sink so low just to attend a rally yet deep down your mind and heart you know who you will vote for. You have all trees around you dressed with political advertisements yet you want to risk your lives by getting into an over loaded vehicle to have a glimpse of your candidate. The people you want to see at the rally did not come to the rally clumped up in a vehicle or helicopter. These leaders are the one who need to be clumped up in the vehicles not you cadres. open your eyes imwe ba *****i.
Looks like it’s yet another sacrifice. The people he is busy sacrificing could have made it 51% to his favour. Shame and sorry to the blind cadres.
Its sad that people have died in this way. Any death is a loss. These deaths have been caused by PF for lack of proper maintenance of roads in the Southern region. There has been not a single road constructed or seriously maintained by PF in Southern province. Thats why people do not recognise PF at all.
However a death caused by the PF death squad is even more painful.
Any way as expected PF minions will say bad things about UPND for they dont have a message to tell the people because its all lies.
PF has lost ground now. It can not even compete with UPND on level playing field. In Northern province they had to intimidate GBM and chase him for Lungu chakolwa to have a rally.
Chagwa and Lungu must fall.
VIVA HH AND GBM TEAM.
Ba dala, muli kabotu? This one will be difficulty for our mason brother to win, let us face it. UMUNTU NI LUNGU, then what type of animal is the Mason?
You are a product of a broken condom. I don’t think your parents intended for you to be born. Several roads have been constructed in Southern Province and example being the Bottom Road.
This HH of yours, will “finish” you before you realize…there is violence or death everywhere he goes!
VIVA HH 2016
Wages of ferrying cadres from other towns to make rallies look well attended. Mtsrip
When PF experienced these accident, and Sata spend most of his last 2 weeks at funeral homes, he finally won elections.
HH is being tested by God like Job of the bible.
Edgar, welcome to our beerhall life.

The snares of a Master Mason can’t be hidden anymore. He will even go to the funeral homes and donate blood money. I have always warned people to beware of this Satanist. He comes in sheepskin as white as smow so that people will not know him. Blood , blood, blood!!!
After being told to celebrate black friday you followed the instruction blindly without knowing that you being sacrificed.it came to light yesterday.watchout Mason temunenu.
As he was turning right, his vehicle’s left wing flipped open and passengers fell in the Zambia Sugar Estate Canal,” he said..Overloading and overspeeding
The people on this rally are too dark, bushe basamba atemwa iyo? Even in the so called strongholds, Kachema is busy ferrying carders and when the perish he blames others. Its the last time your tribesmen are seeing you in public because on 11 August, we are sending you back to your kraal like old Munkombwe.
So even that its PF Government for the good road shame on you UPND
You people are heartless. People have died all you say are rhetoric insults and usual name calling which never ends. As long as I have witnessed rallies of every political party since MMD till now, cadres arrange transport for themselves to attend to a rally of a candidate they love. It happened during Chiluba Sata RB even now its happening. The way you bloggers are coming out as if there is one who is immune to death. Just wish their families condolences after all you lose nothing. Let us not promote hatred and jealous.
Why is there so much hatred on the Tongas now!!! It is only one group of people that are still in the dark. One group that still talks about tribalism. Why always refer to Tongas?. RB has dribbled you and put his man to control you. Proper vengeance on Sata. Read between the lines you people.You will wait for another 5 years thinking one of you by then will mature to take over ..you will be surprised Lungu will groom his own and pass the presidency to an Easterner or Westerner and not you because all along you have been known to be crooked. Watch this space.
VIVA HH 2016
Your tribalist at its worst….even when GBM and others are supporting you UNPN Party still you want to crucify Bembas. what a devil you are. Bembas have left the arena with your HH and Lungu but still you have continued hating them. What kind of people are you. Shame on you.
You must be a TONGA. Always possessed about Bembas. You have all the Bembas you need in your party but it is not enough. Kanshi what is wrong with TONGAs like you. You have Nevers, GBM, Sampa, Lupando, (including Guy Scot), but you still want to be treated special just because you are Tonga. Edgar has a share of Bemba speaking supporters. Listen, Bembas are party of Zambia and they will participate in the activity of the country, in any part of Zambia. So stop complaining about being Tonga and learn to be proud of your tribe. Just convince people why your HH (not a Tonga) is suitable for presidency. Stop thinking with the tribe in mind.
Look at the PF kaponyas gloating at the death of their fellow zambians ……
The looting you are enjoying is not more presious then a life be it a MMD , UPND, DDF.
SHOW US THE PICTURES ..OR MAYBE YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW
HH must suspend his rallies and only resume after burial of the cadres
CONDOLENCES TO THE VICTIMS OF THE ACCIDENTS AND THE RELATIVES OF THE DEAD PASSENGERS WHO WERE FERRIED TO THE RALLIES. ANYWAY, THOSE EARLY WARNING SIGNS THAT EVEN GOD IS NOT HAPPY WITH THIS VIOLENT PARTY CALLED UPND. GBM HAS PROPER BUSES- WHY DIDN’T THEY USE HIS BUSES TO FERRY THEIR SUPPORTER TO CAMPAIGN PLACES? IT IS COMMON SENSE- IF THESE UPND VERY RICH MEN AND WOMEN DID NOT THINK OF PROVIDING PROPER TRANSPORT TO THEIR CADRES, HOW DOES ONE THINK THEY WILL EVEN THINK OF THEM IN THE UNLIKELY CIRCUMSTANCE OF THEM WINNING THE ELECTIONS? LESA NAKANA ATI BA UPND YOUR TIME HASN’T COME YET. WHOLE THIS IS BECAUSE OF THEIR ALL TIME REJECTED PARTY LEADER, HH.
May there souls rest in eternal peace.
bane death is painful stop speaking evil on the party which has lost tho they mocked pf at heroes stadium wen some pipo died in road accident ifwa teinobe. no revenge
HH is the man of the moment
The people who died live within their bounadaries and not ferried from other towns like the way PF does.
Zambia needs an economics president who understand the ins and out flows of the revenue we generate and not chipantepante way of running the affairs of the country.
why ferry cadres from all walks of the country just to attend Mazabuka Rally takwaba abantu, shame HH. MTSRIP
FREE MASONS AT WORK AND THEY WANT MORE BLOOD AND PRINT MORE RED BERETS ! ZAMBIANS BECAREFUL THIS YEAR AND DO THE RIGHT THING OR YOU WILL REGRET FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS.
upnd has lost popularity even in southern province.Most of those who attended were ferried from all over the country to make the audience look big.Shame on underfive politics.
HH killed muntanga by not adopting him and he has killed 3 more cadres and still insists on going on with his campaigns instead of mourning the death of his cadres
The story narrates the wing opened and all the pipo that leaned on it fell,this is not the good or bad road.It could have been on the good road but mwebantu ni sacrifice iyi.Umunenu feeds on Blood elo eka last aka when he will be be having hundreds of pipo in his possession in the name of rallies.Do not be naive mwebantu fimo mwailukako.why not just support him bu ballot .mwelesa tusungeni abantu balapwa being sacrificed.
