  1. Trucks in our roads pack anywhere, whether in the middle of the road or partly in the road making it extremely dangerous for other motorists. It’s high time govt started charging Truck owners and their Drivers for careless parking. Check Ndola -Lusaka road, you will find Trucks parked all over the road & Driver on the side chating. If its a breakdown let the truck owner immediately make arrangements to remove the Truck from the road or face the charge. It’s unacceptable to be experiencing the same problems caused by carelessness of others.

  2. Icimpwena you call it mourners and yet they are going for free meals.

    Time we lessened this nonsense of hiring trucks and buses to ferry mourners.
    Shame
    Professional mourners

  3. No fatalities resulted if no one died in the accident.
    Granted, accidents do and will happen in the future, however, all drivers, particularly for passenger vehicles and trucks should take extra care in bad weather conditions coupled with the poor state of highways.
