General News Five escape death at infamous kapilingozi in Chirundu District

Five passengers escaped death  when a truck and trailer overturned after failing to ascend the hills at the infamous Kapilingozi area in Chirundu district in Lusaka province.

The truck registration number BJ52ZP that was laden with twenty-liter buckets of palm oil and driven by Rayson Kakeno was coming from South Africa to Lusaka when it overturned on Tuesday night.

ZANIS reports that Mr Kakeno said in an interview at the accident scene that his trailer overturned as he was driving uphill.

Mr Kakeno was however delighted that no life was lost in the accident due to the quick intervention by the alert traffic police officers who he said thankfully stopped villagers nearby to loot the oil.

“I was alone in the truck while the other four were in the other car that was escorting the truck. I was terrified, I thought I was going to die…I survived by the grace of God. There is no loss of life except one person who has a minor injury on his forehead,” Kakeno narrated.

And Lusaka Province Deputy Permanent Secretary Josphat Lombe who visited the accident scene was happy that no lives were lost.

Mr Lombe  has however advised the other motorists to drive with care when passing through Kapilingozi hills.

And one of the resident Ackson Mweemba said called for a lasting solution that will help reduce accident at Kapilingozi area.

The traffic flow was temporarily affected as the accident spot became slippery due the spilled palm oil.


  1. we thank GOD, LIFE IS PRECIOUS and may he continue guiding and protecting especially as motorist en other road user.

  2. The words “thank you” are rare on peoples lips especially directed at the government or indeed its agents. Here is one driver who has seen and appreciated the quick response of the men in uniform, the Police.

  3. i don’t understand why a black man fails to plan and build proper secure roads at accident prone areas with signs to avoid more accidents at dangerous sports?
