  1. May the Good Lord have mercy on us by not exposing us to these satanic forces. Lord kindly remove these satanic forces to avert any future loss of human life. If it is a man who is invoking these satanic forces have mercy on him and show him your love and win him back unto yourself. Let our leaders have no faith and practice in witchcraft and sangomas. Lord we speak the blood that was shed on that cross strike them blind as you did to Samson so that they may see your glory clearly. Let our leaders not bring calamity on this land by getting involved in and with witchcraft. If there is such a leader involved in consulting witch doctors Lord hasten his down fall so that this land may presented to you as pure acceptable in your sight.

    So be it

  9. This is very sad indeed. Not sure what happened here but I was on that road two days ago and was appalled at the manner in which a driver of one of the Juldan buses was driving. RTSA or whoever the responsible authorities are should make it mandatory that bus owners put an emergency number that is conspicuously visible both inside and outside the buses so that such drivers can be reported before lives are lost.

  10. It’s so terrible, may the souls of the departed find solace in the Living God Almighty and find rest. What a serious reminder this one is, that death comes as a thief, unexpected and a lesson that we all should stay awake and prepared.

  13. Its disgusting to read some peoples comments even when the article talks about serious and saddest thing. Zambians let’s be sober, sensitive and mature. My deepest heart felt sympathy to every affected family. This shouldn’t just end by our words of comforting the bereveaved ones, the govnt should be proactive in addressing such problems. Its too much.

  14. @Ezron learn to be sober! Are you drunk with Sakeni Faeses!! It is not time to politiking when so many pipo have died because your govt don’t care for its citizens! If PF cares for pipoz lives they could make sure we have safe roads! They have allowed people to be driving while they are drunk with bottled tujilijili!!

  24. Google: palo mayombe, then u will understand. There is too much sacrifises being made. The sangomas you are bringing in this country this is the result. Zambians we have forgotten our God and we have concentrated on materials things. Let’s repent a turn from the wicked ways. Let Sata repent!

    God help Zambia!!!

    • @Defend th bible says do not judge, in all th terms of our Presidents accidents happen. “Zambians we have forgotten our God and we have concentrated on materials things. Let’s repent a turn from the wicked ways.” that is th only way to go, mind u, salvation niweka, lets jst pray & lov one another.

  25. I totally support the dual carriage way idea. It is actually long overdue. we need dual carriage ways for all the major roads, like Mumbwa road, livingstone,and great east. We must not wait for tragedy to strike before we do the needful

  27. Please make this road Lsk to ndola dual road because most of population is concentrated along this road. Also all the way to chingola. It will cost money but in the longterm more lives will be saved.

  34. Sad indeed. May God comfort the families of deceased. We surely need duo carriage way between Ndola and Lusaka. Drivers for big buses panic on the road and cruise like no man’s business. Lets not spend money on useless bye elections and paying useless people to just cause confusion. We have a serious development agenda.

  38. The bus operating companies are also careless, on Saturday power tools allocated Iriza bus ACK 143 to nakonde route and it had no wipers there was heavy rain, and only two options, low beam or full beam. when the director was called he switched off his phone. the same night another power tools bus had collided head on with an Armgard CIT killing two ZP officers on the spot.
    its time these chaps satred paying compensation to families in Millions (Rebased) so that they can follow safety standards. My the souls of our people rest in peace.

  48. The 30km stretch from John Chinena to Kabwe is historically a black spot, especially during the Rainy Season. I am talking from experience as I worked in that area for 6 years during the MMD Mwanawasa reign. The tarmac was really slippery ground & I personally witnessed a number of accidents. THE WAY FORWARD IS TO BUILD A DUAL CARRIAGE WAY.
