Eastern Region Police Spokesperson Thomeck Nyaude has confirmed of the development saying eight others have been admitted of various degrees of injuries at the Zomba Central Hospital.

The minibus, NU 3353, belongs to Kilimanjaro Tours and was  on its way from Mangochi to Limbe.

It is said that the accident happened as the driver was trying to overtake another minibus and it overturned.

“There is a sharp corner at the place and the driver was over-speeding and trying to overtake other vehicles.

“He lost control and the minibus overturned, leaving the boy dead while him [driver] sustained head injuries and was pronounced dead upon arrival at Zomba Central Hospital,” said Nyaude.

The driver-from traditional authority Mponda in Mangochi-was pronounced dead upon arrival at Zomba Central Hospital while child is reported to have died on the spot.

I was shocked one day to hear a minibus driver boasting ‘sangaigwire iyi ndi ya bwana wa traffic ku area 30’. Indeed when the driver was caught driving the bus without valid documments,he told the police traffic officer kuti ndi yabwana wa ku area 30, it was immediately released. See that;corruption too much. Ma minibus driver ndi amwano ochita kupatsidwa ndi a polisi omwewa – Shit

First of all gud riddance to the stupid driver for killing himself, vuto eni ma min bus amalemba ntchito ma driver oti alibe ambition in life ,no familly responsibillity kwawo anachoka kalekale zoti ali moyo akwawo samadziwa, no school kapena kuti “Akafansiyanji” they dnt care about the lives of others, their own life and the owners wealth, chomwe amadziwa nkupanga dolla ya lero basi

THE FUCKIN DRIVER IS TO BLAME,POOR JUDGEMENT ON THE ROAD COUPLED WITH UNRULEY BEHAVIOU ( MWANO ) PASSENGERS ALSO SHARE THE BLAME.SOMETIMES PASSENGERS ENCOURAGE THE DRIVER TO RUSH INORDER TO CATCH UP WITH TIME OBLIVIOUS OF THE FACT THAT IT ONLY RUSHES THEM TO THE GRAVES.LET US ALL TAKE RESPONSIBITY.WE ARE CUSTODIANS OF OUR OWN LIVES AND NOT THE DRIVER.REPORT THESE RUDE DRIVERS TO RELEVANT AUTHORITIES RIGHT THERE IN OUR JOURNEYS
