    • Oh thou holy HH Oval head, who has not sinned, who does not make mistakes. HH Oval head you are pure, you don’t make errors, your talk is serene such that Jesus never came for you. You are such a magnificent person. The all knowing HH Oval head. I wish I was like you. But God will deal with you in His own time.

    • Fire truck, that’s only thing in this reporting. Drivers name is not even close to be thought of.
      What a scandal.

  1. The life is in your hands so don’t think the police will keep it for you. The police is just there to remind you about safe driving.


    Reduce speed whenever u approach a bridge, green robots, road intersection, speed hump etc with caution. If possible foot on brakes and seat belts on the loose when crossing longer bridges like Victoria falls, Biet bridge etc just in case of a sudden tremor.

  3. Are there people in Zambia today 8th February 2018 who need to be told what a Fuso Fighter Truck is? Wonders shall never endooo.
