  1. Sad indeed and no words are enough to describe the tragedy. The road between Lusaka and Ndola is one of the busiest and its time government developed it into a dual carriageway. Such an initiative will save a lot of lives as an accident like this one would not have happened if the road were dual.

    • Some of these government leaders need to visit other countries and see the road network. Every highway is dual or freeway, From the president himself to the lowest ranked leader are unexposed, never lived or driven in developed countries. God will definately punish all the presidents that have ruled zambia. Right now if I was judge I would slap SATA with murder coz he has failed to develop busy roads and innocent people are dying. He shouldnt even go public to pass his condolences.

  3. We have left so many things to be decided by politicians who are laymen in areas of safety, engineering, health, law and even spiritual matters. It is time for God fearing people to PRAY.

  27. This is a disaster,the president must setup a commission of inquiry,we can not let this go just like that,we need to know why people died and there was a way this could have been prevented,if it requires to change laws, we must just do that.Our roads are narrow for heavy traffic.The great north road needs to be a dual carriage way.Health and safety must improve.

  31. The loss of so many lives is so heart wrenching. How can we really help the bereaved families mourn their dead loved ones? Why should it happen to mother Zambia? The causer of this accident, dead or alive, must be brought to book. Let us stiffen laws governing the irresponsible drivers. May the good Lord comfort the bereaved families. May he give them strength and courage during this hopeless time. May the good Lord also touch the lives of the injured so that they can have speedy recoveries. May the souls of the dearly departed rest in the eternal hands of the Lord. Another Sad day for Zambia. When does this come to an end?
