  1. Zikwangwani za panseu zimatithandizira kudziwa what lies ahead. Am sure there can’t be a road block without speed limit sign and eventually stop or yield sign. Its unfortunate we always blame these ppo whom r there to ensure our safety panseu. Sometimes they put these emergency road block on a tip kuti chinachake chachitika. In a duty to rescue someone who has been say robbed they got hit…… My goodness. We aught to be concerned

  4. Condolences to the families of those dead but when we take a look at our traffic police system of roadblocks we will see that these guys man roadblocks on dangerous hideous places for the sake of surprising drivers so that they get more money… If you could mount your roadblocks at open places this couldn’t have happened… But Shaw Malawi was speed trap kuchita kubisala mu mtengo ukangoti pakona umuwona wina uyu akuthamangira mu mmsewu ati uyime..

  13. So they saw a car coming with full speed and someone had the guts to just stay and lean on that block, or maybe the other one stood on the road and raised his hand up, anyway it’s not funny because they have died… May there souls rrst in eternal peace

  14. very sorry. i understand the killed officers were leaning on the road block’s cross bar. did they not realize the on coming vehicle was out of control? I have made it my habit to study security personnel on duty. MOST of the times they are not alert. you see them chatting with friends/customers. plz let’s change our attitude, ALWAYS STAY ALERT. THIS IS YOUR LIFE. DON’T SAY YOU WERE NOT WARNED!!!!

  15. I guess there should be signs before 500m of every permanent roadblock to alert the drivers… some of them comes soon after a curve that is unable to be visible from far…

  16. Kodi nkhani zabodza zi mumazitenga kuti? The vehicle hit three police officer’s who were manning the road block 1 died on the spot, 1 seriously injured and the last one with minor injuries
