  1. Pepani anafwedwa nonse. Efe tonse tili limodzi nanu pamavutowa. Mizimi Yao iuse mumtendere. Kwa ovulala muchire msanga. Apolice a traffic kuno kwanthu ndi ma heartless people ntchito kulandira ziphuphu komanso salemeranso or munthu udandaulere kuti mabasiwa amathanga ngati sananyamule anthu anangokuyang’ana ngati sakumva. Mabasi oti sapangidwa ndi service yomwe chigulireni komwe anagula. Moyo umachita kuthawa ukakwera mbasi. Kaye Kaye ma deviant minibusi drive ndiye usayerekeze kuyankhula akutinso ambiri mwao they belong kwa atraffic omweo. Shame incomplete Malawi traffic police.

    That’s carelessness. It means the driver was overspeeding and only saw the truck when he was close. Or he was dozing and saw the truck late.
