I wish to comment on the scorpion bus accident in Solwezi. That driver is evil he almost killed us about a month ago near the turn off to Ndola girls.
He was driving so dangerously and pushed us off the road. We almost crashed but God had mercy on us. We followed the bus and I took a picture of the number plate.
We called RTSA toll free several times but there was no response I feared for the passengers on that bus. Then my husband said he knew the brother in law for the owner of the bus and he called him and asked him to tell his brother in law to remove that dangerous driver. If they had taken heed probably the accident could have been avoided. It is so sad.
Fourteen people died in a fatal bus accident on the 17th April along the Solwezi-Chingola road in Mushindamo district, in North-western Province.
Accident investigations conducted by RTSA revealed that the driver of the bus Eddie Katoyo, was over speeding as evidenced by the fact that he overtook several vehicles and ended up hitting into a stationary truck in the opposite lane.
RTSA records indicated that on 11th April, 2019, the same bus driver was reported to have been driving at excessive speed around Chisamba area on Great North Road after which he was summoned, but did not show up to answer to the charge.
Further investigations into the accident also indicated that the offender Eddie Katoyo was not licenced to drive a Public Service Vehicle and it was further established that the driver gave false information to officers when he presented fake documentation indicating that he was licensed with a PSV licence when in fact not.
