  1. Imwe ba LT you are not supposed to publish somebody’s passport details anyhow, have you never heard of identity theft?, especially now that the man has passed away?, anyway condolences to the family

  2. Sad. RIP.
    I don’t understand the reporting in Zambia where the vehicle registration number is always published after an accident – and in this story, even the passport number! That is simply wrong and irrelevant. Even in death, there is data protection.
