ZASA

Good day ladies and gentlemen.

Jitotwe luxury coach was involved in a road accident last night [22 April 2017] a few km away from Beitbridge border. We have received information about a few Zambians that have passed away but we will wait for confirmation from our source.

We will keep on updating you as we receive confirmed details.

All those who had family and friends on this bus that left Johannesburg traveling to Zambia yesterday please contact ZASA immediately.


Update 1: Confirmed – Mrs Memory Kainga and the daughter Taonga Mwale have passed on in the same accident. They are from the Yoeville branch.

We have asked Mr Chris Kambalame to travel to the scene and get us full information. He is traveling with the deceased’s husband to Louis Tritchard memorial hospital.
Catherine Chanda is much better we believe but Josephine Mwansa is critical and has been referred to JHB hospital.
Updates coming as we receive them.
