  1. Condolences to the bereaved families!! But plz the boss for ma tours advise ur drivers. I have traveled with ma tours twice from blantyre to mzuzu. The first time after reaching mzuzu I made up my mind not to travel on ma tours again bkz of how ur drivers drive. Next time I had no option bkz there were no trspts available at mzz depot when returning to blantyre.
    Ur buses are new but plz advise them to control their speed.
