    • Yes sir, in medical terms, its wrong to establish that it was the car accident that killed the victims. But its things like bleeding caused by the injury due to the accident, lack of breath due to suffocation etc. That is why there is need for a postmortem so that the cause of the deaths could officially be established and recorded. Tebatumpile iyo, there are rules and traditions to follow. What if the husband was just killed by the beatings from the wife’s family and they pretend that he hanged himself? These things have happened before. So a professional medical report supported by a post mortem comes in handy in such circumstances.

    • Very sad news.

      Driving is serious business.

      It only takes a moment to lose control.

      May their souls rest in piece.

    • @ 1.3 CHARLES MUSONDA …cant agree with you more, if you want to prove your point just come to Choma. Tonga men are the most shallowest, slow thinkers on the road. How they got their licences shocks me. things that happen on the roads in Choma can shock you. A car cuts in front of you and this Tonga guy maintains speed at 10km/h, starts talking on the phone, playing with his girlfriend in the car. In the morning during rush hour, these fellows dont understand that, they drive at 10KM/H causing traffic for no reason, Zebra crossings are points they want to show their pedestrian relatives what it is to be bantu yomwe as they give too much room to pedestrians forgetting they are on the road.

      if you want to see clueless drivers, come to choma you will be shocked with things that happen on…

  1. This is what happens when you have a useless party in power like the pf which has failed to ensure facilities and support services for people undergoing grief. Mental instability is a big thing although visionless governments will never understand this.

    • It’s clear? What you’re reading is what has been thought to have happened. A blow to the head may seem like it’s what killed someone but it could have been that the victim had hbp which caused his arteries to rapture just when he saw the punch approaching. Let the post mortem and forensic investigation determine

  2. How come the age difference between the deceased woman (22) and the late son (16) is only 6 years? Strange.

  3. So at 22 the woman had a child aged 16 years old while the husband was 31.
    Am not surprised, HH will agree to this and take me to the Concourt.

  6. Useless reporting, of useless DC. In Zambia you do not have to be overspeeding to have an accident. Your roads are kak and there are no signs alerting anyone to road conditions at all. Even speed limits are guess work. There is this useless attitude that everyone must “make a plan” when they are in unknown territory. Mwe mbushi mwe!

  7. @Wajimona: Now Zambians agree that we are unfortunate in this Country where politics are concerned. How does an accident bring in HH. Secondly when you read this article they wrote 16 years but cancelled or crossed it off and put 6. This is what I am reading my self. Now this PF Wajimona goes to pick a wrong thing and aligns to HH. You are not normal. Repent before it is too late for you for hating HH for no apparent reason.
