Filed under: Breaking News |

21A Zambia Malawi bus heading to Lusaka from Chipata has been involved in an accident with a  Post Courier van at Kafunka near St Francis Hospital in Katete.

The accident happened about 05 hours this (Wednesday) morning.

Reports reaching the Watchdog indicate that the small vehicle has been flattened as  seen in the picture but is not yet known how many passengers have lost their lives.

According to one passenger who was in the overturned bus, no passenger from the big bus died . She was however too traumatized to see the number of casualties  in the smaller vehicle.

‘It is gruesome’ said one person who sent the photos to the Watchdog.

This is developing story. Check back later for details….

  3. POST newspaper courier! Things appear to be getting closer and closer to the instigators.

    Where is fr Bwalya with his white chickens? I wouldn’t be surprised if he is in Chipata.

  4. Dear beloved this things are very clear, the Black Magic is at work here in Zambia!
    Somewhere, someone has given Zambia to the devil… it’s clear I am not against anyone.
    I am just realistic ! We need more prayer if you say No or you think that I writing for pleasure it’s because this things happened far one day it’s will be closer two you or your family.

    It’s started with Mobutu in Zaire when He was sick and travel to India for Black Magic.
    In South Africa when Mandela is sick and closer to die such things happened
    In Zimbabwe When Mugabe is sick and closer to die such things happened
    In Malawi it’s was the same with Mutarika

    We need more prayer….
    God bless Zambia

  18. who to blame,the question is 05.00 hrs,too early the bus starts off moving fast to reach lusaka in less than fours hours who checks for the speed of these buses,where these bus serviced since they were bought,Did the driver had enough rest to start off early who monitors them to make them have enough rest and not spend time in night clubs,for the small post bus fast to chipata to deliver the newspapers for us in the east to get the informations who to blame? a lot of things to be done a chain which needs stakeholders to be involved,all thing are in place if you look at policy documents on transport but implementations is what is lucking the figure points to Zambia Police and RTC and long term projects by RDA.

  21. What is happening in zambia is the work of the devil,people need to seek GOD in prayers.We need also to realise that as we come close to the coming of Jesus satan works with great power to cause destruction everywhere in the world.The other thing is that,most of these accidents happen in the morning,perhaps buses should avoid starting early.

  25. On Sunday night i had a dream of a sneak eating a small animal and a necks had to stand covered with blood. when we stated throwing stones on it turned into a black necks and it rune away. Then i meat a man who was sweeping with a dust pan in his hands and i stated complaining that there are so many sicks around this place and he started telling that you are complaining with this few sneaks because more are coming to Zambia and i work up.

    This means that Satan and his Angels who may be called Satanist planning to attack Zambia. So we need to stand in prayers to cover our Zambia in the blood of Jesus and closed all the borders where Satanist could enter from in spiritually.

    May God protect you and Zambia.
