I am very surprised 🤨 looking at the damaged car. How could a ‘convoy’ accident possibly lead to such a writeoff?

Our thoughts and prayers are with those families affected.

Be careful everyone.

Nyasa, best reporting should have been including cause for the accident, what the locals say as observations, what the state VP says on the incident etc…this report is inconclusive.

Wherever chilima goes, he leaves corpses or bullet wounds on the roads. He is very careless with other people’s lives. Arafat Hamdan is simply too selfish.

It is high time VP Chilima and your boss, for your presidential motorcades to respect the road traffic laws of our country’s! Especially when it comes to overspending! You can not drive with a speed of 100 km/h plus through villages or towns !

Destroying lives of government employees and ordernery citizens plus the huge cost of replacing this expensive modecade… Read more »
