  1. This is due to failure to obey traffic rules by drivers,incompetent drivers (partially trained) and failure to enforce the law by police men

  3. Guys as a country we must work up. Things are really bad in Zambia from all perspectives. This cannot be normal. No witchcraft involved just undeveloped minds inflicting death on each other. We need free and forced education for everyone.
