One man has died  at Bwengu in Mzimba, the Turn off to Rumphi district  in a car accident involving driver to Minister of Natural  and Environment Vuwa Kaunda.

There was commotion at Bwengu in Mzimba, the Turn off to Rumphi district where a vehicle hit to death a pedestrian.

The driver, Anderson Phiri, who according to eye witness was recklessly driving at high speed apparently in an effort to catch up with  President Peter Mutharika’s convoy, hit a pedestrian suspected to have been drunk  at Bwengu.

Vuwa Kaunda was not in the car at the time of the accident. The  driver had earlier dropped Kaunda at Rumphi Boma for the scheduled Presidential rally .

The Presidential convoy passed  Kaunda’s driver at Ekwendeni trading Centre from where he turned and started cruising  to catch up with  the  motorcade .

The deceased whas been taken to Rumphi hospital mortuary

It is the second death as another person died last night in Mzuzu, when a vehicle hit him to death immediately after the President addressed his supporters at Katoto roundabout.

Mutharika addressed his final campaign rally at Rumphi Boma, ahead of the June 23 polls.

Have NOT SEEN any NEWs Article where Atupele has rushed to the scene to offer assistance such as money and a casket. As he did for political reason when 6 people died because of a Lorries failed brakes.
This is the time DPP should be stepping up to assist their supporters,
