Former Information and Broadcasting Services minister Chishimba Kambwili has been involved in another road traffic accident.
Police confirmed the accident and named the causer as Reuben Zulu, 49 who was driving a Suzuki.
“We recieved a report of Road Traffic Accident which occurred at around 10:30 hours today at 22 miles, Protea junction on Great North road involving a motor vehicle Mitsubishi Pajero registration number AJD 7443 in which Honourable Chishimba Kambwili was a passenger and was being driven by Alfred Phiri aged 40 years of Kamwala South driving from north towards south direction; and another motor vehicle Suzuki registration number BAE 6389 which was being driven by Reuben Zulu aged 49 years of Chunga Lusaka, driving from east towards west,” police spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo stated.
“The accident happened when the driver of the Suzuki which was joining the Great North road did not give way hence hit into the Mitsubishi Pajero which had four occupants including the driver, causing it to flip over. Honourable Chishimba Kambwili and the other occupants sustained minor injuries and were taken to UTH.
