Mozambican authorities are not releasing the numbers of deaths, if any or casualties but confirmed reports from Malawi indicate that the bus, Nyamende Bus Transport Services has been involved in an accident.

Sources at Malawi Police National Headquarters were reluctant to give details on the accident.

“We have received reports that there is an accident and our men are planning to go there but details are very sketchy because our counterparts in Mozambique are not fortcoming,” said Nyasa Times source.

He however dismissed online reports that the accident might have been ambushed in the war torn Mozambique.

Social media information indicate the accident has occurred at Songo Turn Off, near Tete, a place which has seen skirmishes between the governing Frelimo forces and opposition or rebels Renamo.

The bus registration number is KM256NGP and the trailers motor vehicle registration number is KM10NGP.

Why are the speeds of these buses NOT regulated. They make an attempt at flying and all they succeed is killing innocent people. May SADC secretariat can give us a hand in this. Opening up borders should lead in the end of us all.

And Maliseni at transport, have your reconsidered your cowardly decision to let the Bongos/Vannetes keep on carrying passengers? Wake it is your first on the job!
