SURVIVORS of a road accident which happened yesterday in Chisamba have paid glowing tribute to the driver, who died on the spot, for his determination to prevent the mishap.
Gelvasio Phiri, 49, of Lusaka died around 09:00 hours on the Great North road when a Higer bus belonging to Yamukombe Express with 35 people on board hit into a truck which suddenly got into his lane.
The truck was ferrying fertiliser to Nchelenge in Luapula Province.
After travelling for nearly 900 kilometres from Nakonde, where most of the passengers had gone to do business, the unexpected happened, just 50 kilometres before their destination, Lusaka.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
