    • He was drunk in government vehicle. Please show the vehicle, must be ministerial car he receives allowances on. Was he alone? Can’t be, he had a woman. If she got injured they can’t even report about her.
      Let’s see if that Kafwaya minister of works got balls to be transparent on the investigation.

    • For anyone to be treated in ICU at the hospital they must have taken this dull fooool’s blood to test for alcohol …so the police spokeswoman is telling lies when she says cause is unknown!!

    • I am sure you are not familiar with Thabo Mbeki Rd…. You should really be driving carelessly to flip a Land cruiser on that Rd. This guy was without a doubt drunk or driving childishly to flip such a vehicle on Than Mbeki Rd

  8. Some comments are too diabolic. Rejoicing at the misfortune of others is tantamount to witchcraft. Anyone can get involved in an accident anytime, whether drunk or sober. The measure we use to judge others is the same measure that will be used on us.

    • Do you read anywhere about a third party vehicle being involved…who flips a vehicle in the wee hours of Saturday night..put two and two together…a gullible individual like yourself can know the answer to that!!

  9. We wish him a quick recovery so that he can be fit enough to announce the postponement of the launch of zambia airways once again for the umpteenth time.

  10. Nine chale ,what do you expect U/Ts ? Then an ancient ape calling himself “clergy man” is yapping that LET US fight tribalism. Tribalism can’t be fought as long as these stools start respecting names from Eastern and Northern corridors.

  11. Some people luck respect . Fooling and insults are just in their door steps. Lusaka times you should block useless comments.

  12. Traffic Police or RTSA should have made the announcement as this falls within their responsibility and would have given a more detailed brief. Management Lesson 101.

  13. Jay Gay, field day for trib.als obviously.
    As Nine Chale says, accidents can happen to everyone of us, including trib.als and non-trib.als, at any time, chauffeur driven or self driven.
    Even those in convoys, official or not, unplanned or planned accidents …. ask Trib.al Hacks about Mongu.

  14. Trib.al, witchcraft and evil spirits are one and the same thing. I am sure Jay Gay is wearing his traditional trib.al suit as he is blogging.
    Wish you quick recovery Hon Minister.

  15. I am a damn good driver, but I was once involved in a nasty flip which really baffled me. Fortunately the only injury that I sustained was a small fracture on my fore finger and a stiff neck. And of course I looked like a makishi, dusty I mean.

    But maybe these things don’t happen to trib.als, or I have not noticed….kikikiki….from now on I will observe….wait and see whether their officials are immune from accidents. No wait a minute, didn’t the MP (MHSRIEP) from trib.als “party” die in a road accident in Itezitezi, there is a by election there right? If that is not proof enough, we shall wait for one involving a more prominent trib.al….you better pray hard Jay Gay, but then which God will listen to you with such an evil mind?

  16. It’s funny how people love to conclude, anyway it’s a good thing the accident isn’t on any of the people commenting here accidents happen drunk or not, and what has Zambia got do to with this. people drink and drive all over the world, and some of you want to paint Zambians black because of the ministers accident. Shame on you and what has the USA got to do with this have you ever head of a drive by in Zambia ????
