ROAD Transport and Safety Agency says following a spate of road traffic accidents by Mazhandu Family Bus Services in the recent past, the agency will be summoning the operator to show cause why the Road Service License (RSL) should not be suspended.
Road Transport and Safety Agency senior public relations manager Fredrick Mubanga in a statement urged all motorists to exercise maximum patience on the roads and avoid over speeding.
“And following a spate of road traffic accidents by Mazhandu Family Bus Services in the recent past, the Agency will be summoning the operator to show cause why the Road Service License (RSL) should not be suspended. The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) is saddened by the death of six people in a road traffic accident along the Kabwe Kapiri Mposhi road involving a Mazhandu Family Services Bus,” Mr. Mubanga stated.
“Preliminary accident investigations conducted by the RTSA have revealed that the driver of the motor vehicle failed to negotiate a curve, due to excess speed. According to one of the eye witness, the driver of the bus Kasheka Shadrick Kabange was over speeding and failed to negotiate the curve and lost control causing the bus to slip on the road.”
Mr. Mubanga stated that the investigations also revealed that the driver of the bus was fully licensed.
He stated that the investigations further showed that the section of the road where the accident occurred is a curvy stretch with a speed limit of 80km/h and the road is clearly marked and that the road is smooth.
“The investigations have also revealed that the road was wet as it was raining during the time the road accidents occurred,” stated Mr. Mubanga.
