  1. Indeed the government must do something at this bridge. Ndalama osamangothera mu matumba anu ma minister. Konzano bridge limeneli. Komanso sibwino kumwa ndikumayendetsa galomoto. Malangizo alipo oti “Don’t drink and Drive”. look now what has happened. #Ulendo wa ku France walephereka

  2. This place @ Stella Maris bridge is a death trap Roads Authority and city of Blantyre have to do something and quickly. I have driven over this place uncountable times and each time I sense danger. There are no protective bars on the sides , no warning u are approaching a bridge yet the approach from both sides is steep slopes. Recipe for disaster . It’s not the first time a life has been lost at this bridge
