Police Spokesperson Esther Mwaata-Katongo says the driver of the Kapena bus which killed 17 people in Luangwa three days ago, was identified and apprehended from Lusaka’s Garden Compound last night.
And Katongo says 13 bodies out of the 17 victims who perished have been identified.
The driver of the Kapena Scania bus identified as Matomola Mubyana aged 36 of Lusaka’s Zanimuone Township who had initially escaped was apprehended yesterday from Lusaka’s Garden compound at about 22:00 hours. He will be charged with 17 counts of Causing Death by Dangerous Driving. He will be taken back to Luangwa district where he will appear in court after being examined by doctors since he is complaining of body pains,” stated Katongo.
She went ahead to name the victims who died in the accident.
“Among those identified, seven are female while six are male. Most of the identified victims were based in Eastern Province, one Tanzanian while others were from Copperbelt and Lusaka. Those identified are as follows: Bridget Mutale, Ann Chali both of Lundazi District, Willy Mwanza of Nyimba District, Ian Tembo of Chipata District, Ann Lungu of Nyimba, Agnes Ngoma of Katete, Laston Ngoma of Chipata, Susan Shamilimo, Janet Kasalu of Luanshya, Hassan Munkondya of Lundazi, Paul Ngulube also of Lundazi , Abel Mwakasala, a Tanzanian national and Thokozile Nyirongo of Lusaka’s Zingalume. We call upon members of the public to continue coming forth to help us identify the remaining bodies,” said Katongo.
