Shaaaaa! MPC bus again. I suspect overspeeding by the drivers. The roads are slippery when it’s raining. Drivers need to always remember “kuthamanga sikufika” . Focus on “safe arrival”, not on speeding to death.

Better be late than be called “the late”

May the soul of Ms. Kamanga Mwale rest in peace

Boycott these buses. Whatever strategy it was to boost revenue was the worst from management. Post ffice needs to hire an independent consultant to define their future through robust business plan. Za ma bus siyani. Costs don’t make any business sense

Post Office should just concentrate on their core business of letters. That’s where they are experienced. Transportation is other people’s domain. Its not long ago when another Post Corporation bus had a similar accident of overturning in Kasungu, killing another passenger. For a bus to lose control and overturn it means it was overspeeding.
