The Toyota Prada that was carrying Mrs Muntemba

Three diplomats including Zambia’s High Commissioner to Kenya are receiving treatment at Machakos Level 5 Hospital after they were involved in a fatal road accident at Lukenya on the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway on the evening of Tuesday, February 26.

The accident involved a trailer and two vehicles which were ferrying the envoys who were traveling from Maanzoni in Machakos county on their way back to Nairobi.

The vehicle that was ferrying Zambian Ambassador to Kenya Brenda Mudenda and her colleague Kama Wasa alongside their driver Joseph Guttu was reported to have collided head on with the trailer.

Botwana Ambassador to Kenya Duke Lephoko and his driver Morris Maweu who were riding behind their Zambian colleagues also rammed into the trailer.

Police reports indicated the convoy was led by a police vehicle with full Siren on and on reaching Lukenya bridge, the trailer that was coming from the opposite direction failed to give way.

As a result a Toyota Prado that was ferrying the diplomat lost control and collided with the vehicle head on before the other one followed.

Guttu sustained a fractured right leg and bruises on the left hand, Lephoko had injuries on the left leg above the knee while Mrs Muntemba complained of chest and abdominal pain.

They were rushed to Machakos Level Five where they are currently receiving treatment.

Both the truck driver and one of those who was driving the envoy escaped unhurt.

The vehicles were extensively damaged.

  1. Fatal entails that someone died. Unfortunately, there is no mention of who died in the article. Perhaps the word was used wrongly in the above article, and hope this can be corrected Ba LT.

    • Thats the reason news has lost credibility these days….people just rush to report even if what they’re saying doesn’t make sense….real news goes through the editorial board….not these whatsapp dander heads masquerading as Journalist

    • And who is Mrs Mutenda? Does the writer mean Mudenda?
      Is this the sloppy standard we can expect from a lack of free press

    • Hahaha. Foooolish reporting. These LT journalists need to go back to school. “Fatal” and “deadly” means people DIED. And yet apparently this reporter doesn’t mention anywhere that anybody died. Mediocre reporting. LT, do you really have competent editors? Shame on you.

  2. So how is it a deadly accident when there was no loss of life?? Maybe it is because English is not my first language.

  4. Ba LT, PLEASE WITHDRAW THIS ARTICLE AND HAVE IT REWRITTEN BEFORE YOU CONFUSE MORE PEOPLE!! The order of presentation of events, description of how the actual accident occurred are all in shambles; how can a trailer collide with a car head-on and then in other sentence say the on-coming vehicle collided with the car carrying Diplomats??

    Hate to criticize someone’s grasp of their second language but are these guys at Lusaka Times a bunch of volunteers who rush out the door to look for a proper pay job? Seriously I’m curious, how is news blog run, who runs? Mistake surely is a one off rare thing, not this relentless malarkey that they continue to feed us on.

    Perhaps write in all 4 major Zambian languages, we will try to get it.

  8. Mrs Muntemba/Mudenda complained of chest and abdominal pain, well, maybe Arap Moi knocked her up with a half Nubian Kalenjin bastador! You bet she is Munthemba because there is no way this tribalistically stinking PF government would appoint a Tonga called Mudenda as an ambassador anywhere. Anyway, we shall soon seccede with our Tonga cousins leaving you thieves alone.

  9. Wishing you all God’s blessings and please get better sooner. Fate does not choose but here in Zambia some leaders can design fate for sake of publicity. Wondering where politics is now taking us to.

  11. anybody know why they were travelling this route (Mombasa to Nairobi) by road? I’ve been on this road, it’s the most dangerous road in kenya, not to mention long and very busy as there are so many trucks from the port.
    there’s a new train that cuts the commute time in half, it’s more comfortable and way safer, even flying isn’t that expensive
    i’ll find out from my Kenyan friends at the Zambian embassy what’s really going on since whoever posted this report did such a mediocre job

  13. Fatal, Mudenda, Muntemba, ridding behind their Zambian colleagues! Waooooh. Our standards are really low. We need to do something about it. And Kambwili goes on ranting about an Indian man operating a compactor, my word.
