Less than a week after a tragic accident involving Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers at Mapanjira in Mzimba, another accident occurred on Tuesday at the same place.

In the Tuesday accident, a man identified as Osward Nyirenda died while several other people sustained injuries.

NkhotakotaAccording to Police in Mzimba through public relations officer Peter Botha, the accident which involved a Van truck registration number MZ 1367 occurred due to overloading.

He said the  truck which was being driven by a driver who is at large had ten passengers on board and was coming from Jenda side going towards Mzuzu direction.

“Upon arrival at Mapanjira  the truck failed to ascend the  ascent due to overloading as it carried one hundred bags of cement and one hundred and twenty bags of maize. The vehicle started moving backwards and fell offside of the road,” said Botha.

Due to the impact, Nyirenda whose full particulars are not known by police sustained head injuries and died on the spot, two other people sustained serious injuries while the rest sustained general body pains.

All Injured people were referred to Mzimba District Hospital.

  2. A man of God can not b involved in these issues u r putting him, accident always happen in our daily life, not matter how many times,we must accept the fact that accident always happen so we are just wasting our time pointing fingers on someone rather than finding a solution to problem. Ndangodusa

  3. Don’t blame the roads over the years accidents have been happening but what matters now is the FREQUENCY.Does it mean its only Ku mpoto where the roads have become so impassable.such that accidents should be registered daily.question Mark!

  8. Open your spiritual eyes Malawi.Here is the thing,you are busy preparing for christmas festive season which is not recorded in the bible that 25 th dec is the date when christ was born.Gen to revelation not a single text talks about it.Satanism is on high to suck innocent blood which is used for sacrifice to to their pagan king born on dec 25.Nov To Dec is their to cause fatal accidents so watch and pray hard.Don’t you wonder that we lose more lives in dec prior to christmas than any other months?Christ is born to us everyday and his blessings are new every morning not on one specified day(25 th dec).Follow what the bible say and not majority.If it is not in the bible ,it is not for you.A challenge to you all,go and find in the scriptures where they say christ was born on dec 25,albet you wont find it.

  9. When I said it last week that our roads need resurvey. Lot of people called me names and insults. The roads have funny blind curves. No visible road warning sign. Yes tar road are there but there are not good especially with these modern cars. Government please do something. We can pray whole night but we are like testing God. Trust me some of these accidents can be prevented. They can put fines ×100 but with these conditions we will carry on like this

  10. That place is dangerous bcz it comes very sudden while u r coming from a very good straight the vehicle will be at a higher speed n its not easy to negotiate that corner.

  11. Tisangoti Nthawi Yakwana Ayi, Kodi Nthawiyi Ikungokwanira Dela Limodzimodziro..?

  14. koma tikuluza okondedwa ndi machitidwe anuwa muziwe mulungu simunthu nsembe zanuzo enakulila kumasangalala kwanilisani maloto anu inde nthawi isanathe zikoma

  15. How could you blame an individual who isn’t even in the country for the accidents? The hatred we Malawians have against each other is just unacceptable, let’s try to follow up and find out always why something happened that way. Hopefully in Malawi we ain’t got forensic investigators, why can’t you spend time studying Forensic studies or if you know you are too cute for studies yourself why not sponsor somebody in the studies who will later have the last say on whatever accident happens in our country!

  16. I Wonder why people organise prayers for whole country but instead they organise demonstrations
    This accidents need prayers not a traffic kukweza mitengo ya Zilango. God have mercy on Malawi

  17. sad news sorry for dat! kwa banja la womwalilayu but i suspect something ku North ku! cz izi zikuchulukilako why?. please abale wanga inu aaku North osazipachika m’khwapa mwa mwanayi akuzitcha mprofetiyu! ameneyu ndiwachabe alindi matchera ovuta zedi inu muzimukonda kumati ndi waku mudzi kwanu. makaso potengera kuti alindi khobili pomamusapota mumaprogram ake koma osaziwaso kuti ndiyemweyu akumakumenyani khondo ya chisisi powononga miyoyo yanu munjila ngati izi!! please stop to support B…………. inorder to save accidents like this.

    • My bro i think you are totally lost in your comment? How many accidents happened @ central and southern regions? Let’s talk things the way it is. Don’t combine other things with another things. Let us just pray to the Almighty Lord so that He has mercy on us. Not your nonsense above. May the souls of our beloved ones rest in peace

    • The issue is not about region,the Mapanjira area my brother is steeply,as you drive you must be carefulness with some bends too.

      If we had enough resources our M1 road needs widening and resurfacing, imagine from Kasungu,I once remember the road was built early 1980’s,looks like lots of wearing outs and potholes.
