The accident, involving Post Bus registration number BW 7919 occurred in the early hours of Saturday, November 2.

The state company says the bus was travelling to Mzuzu from Blantyre and had 26 passengers and two crew members on board when it overturned at Nkhamenya in Kasungu.

“We have regrettably lost one of our passengers, Mr. Hosea Mologera, an Immigration officer from Mzuzu who died on the spot and three have sustained serious injuries while 14 others have minor injuries,” says the company in a statement.

MPC says it is doing everything possible to ensure that all affected passengers are assisted.

The accident comes at a time when MPC says it will pay late its staff the October salaries due to financial problems.

The buses were acquired using a loan from China.

Something very fishy about MPC. The first thing the new chairman of the board did for the company was to embark on a trip to visit each and every post office in the country. He then gleefully billed the struggling company K7M for the holy trip. The second thing he did was to accompany the technical team to China to purchase the ill-fated buses. By the time his term of office will be over, there will be no MPC!

Sad. I feel for the company. Nobody sets off to have an account. May Mologela’s soul rest in peace.

That is a bad start for MPC. But which is which? Was the loan from China or FDH bank?

So sad. The two crew members mentioned by MPC management here are a driver and a conductor. To make it more clear, this means one driver for the whole night journey. I noticed this when I boarded this night bus recently. They will be a driver starting off from Mzuzu and another one starting off from BT who simply swap buses at Lilongwe. The one coming from BT will return in the bus heading to BT while the Mzuzu one will take the bus coming from BT. This means one driver driving a bus for the whole night!. Actually, the… Read more »

Very pathetic indeed. Truly speaking our roads are not in good condition and i would rather ask govt to expedite the process of rehabilitating Lilongwe Mzuzu road bcoz it has lots of shoulders which pose danger to lives of people. So please let the roads be well widened otherwise will continue losing innocent and influential lives.
