The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) parliamentary candidate for Chikwawa east Foster Thipha’s vehicle overturned three times yesterday at a place called Mojo in the district.

He was going to Masenjere Trading Centre for a campaign rally.

Speaking from Chikwawa District Hospital where he had been rushed to for medical assistance, Thipiwa  said the accident happened as he was trying to avoid hitting some animals which were crossing the road  at the place, only to realise  that in the lane where he had switched to was an oncoming motor bike  with two people on board.

He said it was in an attempt to avoid hitting the motor bike that he lost  control of the vehicle.

Thipiwa, who was  still  in shock at the time of the interview, said he and other three party members he was travelling with have all survived the accident with minor injuries.

Meanwhile,  MCP  Regional Chairperson for the Southern Region Peter Simbi who visited Thipiwa said the party is grateful to God for sparing the life of its candidate and that the  party shall  intensify campaign in the area with only few days remaining before  the by-elections.

Why don’t people drive to the condition of the road? You see animals far ahead of you on the side of the road, slow down, anticipating anything can happen. Reaching that point the animals can be crossing the road, if not, you continue. Slow down when going through busy areas. The overturning you can tell he was going so fast.

Was this accident for real, or was it yet another surreal shit happening in his dreams?? With MCP, one needs to ask before we start feeling sorry for the guy.
