A presidential motorcade involving a rider has been involved in a road traffic accident in Livingstone. according to a statement made by the presidential spokesperson Amos Chanda that was made available to kitwe Times, a police rider who was the lead sweeper of the presidential convoy leading to the airport collided with a police vehicle that was returning from the airport. The car also happens to be the official vehicle for Southern Province Commissioner of Police Bonnie Kapeso who had been dropped off at the airport.
