Copperbelt Minister Mwenye Musenge says government will not sit back and allow reckless public transport drivers continue killing people.
Mr Musenge has meanwhile urged public transport drivers to strictly observe road traffic rules to reduce road accidents which he said are mostly caused by reckless drivers.

Mr Musenge was speaking at the Chingola road cemetery during the burial of four accident victims who died in the Kitwe-Ndola road accident which left 15 people dead last Tuesday.

The Copperbelt minister led hundreds of Kitwe residents in paying their last respects to Lydia Phiri, Lazarus Nyirenda, Kelvin Gondwe and Lillian Musonda.

And Mr Musenge has appealed to church organizations to commit the Copperbelt province into prayers against road traffic accidents.

The provincial minister said the rate at which accidents were happening on the Copperbelt was too high hence the need for churches to intercede against the spirit of accidents.

The horrific accident happened on the Kitwe-Ndola duo carriage way around Kamfinsa area.

Meanwhile, the remaining eleven accident victims were buried on different days earlier in the week in Chingola, Ndola, Mufulira and Lusaka.

And a family representative to one of the deceased thanked government for the help rendered to the families saying their burden had been lightened.

Also in attendance at the burial were Copperbelt Province Permanent secretary Stanford Msichili, Kitwe Deputy Mayor Kelvin Sinyangwe, Kitwe District Commissioner Elias Kamanga, Mufulira District Commissioner Chanda Kabwe and other senior Government and Patriotic Front –PF officials.
