    No doubt these guys were involved in an accident, I remember this Landrover overtook us at KCN/Gaddaf, Kameza while overspeeding. We were in a minibus then and we all commented with concern. Infact there were two vehicles looking to be together. The other one was a Toyota Fortuner, all speeding together. At a terrific speed. So sad. Kaya abwana atiuza kuti tifulumire, chonde abale anga kuli bwino nthito itithere posamala sipidi kusiyana ndikutaya moyo.
