    The driver’s identity,although am not 100% sure,must be John Chigumula of Tchete village T/A Mwambo, Zomba. MAY THE SOULS OF THE DEPARTED REST IN PEACE.Koma msewu wathu wa Zomba-Jali,wafika pokaikitsa.Almost every week kukuchitika ngozi.Previously,it was at Lomoni,Mamphanda @ talking about accidents involving cyclists,motor cyclists & pedestrians,they are countless.Should the blame be shouldered by the police?,road users?,or there is satanic intervention? May the good lord have mercy on the innocents who are losing lives eg the just demised six-yr old.

    May their soul rest in peace, we need to encourage people to travel with their particulars. At least have papers with your names etc. Fone numbers or for anyone in your family incase of such tragic accidents.
