4 die in bus crash

HENRY SINYANGWE, Kasama
FOUR people have died while 41 others are battling for their lives at Chilubula Mission Hospital and Kasama General Hospital after a bus they were travelling on overturned at the Mporokoso-Luwingu road junction.
Northern Province Commissioner of Police Richard Mweene said in an interview yesterday the accident happened when a Juldan bus rammed into a hill around 06:30 hours.
Mr Mweene said the bus overturned after its driver failed to see a junction due to heavy rains and mist on the road.
“A Juldan bus registration ABE 6940 rammed into a hill on the Mporokoso-Luwingu road junction and overturned. It was raining and the driver could not see clearly,” he said.
Mr Mweene said the bus driver, Davie Kasoka, of Kabanana Site and Service in Lusaka and two other passengers died on the spot.
