    @vaanwyk. Thanks for your comment my friend. big media house like BBC images for example, they advise that the pictures may be disturbing. and even if you look at the pictures, the victims faces, or parts where there is so much trauma are covered/blurred. I wish Nyasatimes takes the same approach, I find it respectful to the families of the deceased as well as help to some readers who might find the picture too disturbing.

  5. vaanwyk says:

    @ALFRED you say Nyasatimes is wrong by showing photographs of the four deceased? No my friend, posting photographs is one of the ethics of journalism. For to believe the story photographs of victims as well as vehicles involved needs to acompany the article? Sadalakwe. RIP .m
