“We have now intensified traffic checks on the road, our traffic officers are checking speed limits and road worthy of vehicles plying on that road. We have put speed traps and breathlisers,” said Chapola.

The first accident happened when a speeding minibus killed a pedestrian near Mzuzu University then days later there was a four vehicle accident on the Chiweta, two accidents which happened ten minutes apart one of the vehicles involved a minibus that had Sunday School children on board and on Saturday a National Bus that had refugees on board from Karonga overturned killing its conductor on the spot.

This article is not well written. The statistics given in the article are not well organized. No wonder the author has decided to hide his name.
