Driver jailed 85 years for 17 deaths

THE Lusaka High Court yesterday sentenced a bus driver to 85 years imprisonment with hard labour for causing the death of 17 people last year.

Mubiana Matomola was jailed for five years for each of the 17 deaths he caused and the sentences will run concurrently, meaning he will serve only five years.
He was charged with causing death by dangerous driving when the bus he was driving plunged into a ravine near Luangwa Bridge, killing the 17 people and injuring 46 others.
