Ten people have been seriously injured when a Lusaka bound mini bus collided head on early today with an oncoming truck at Demu area on the Choma-Monze road.
Pemba District Commissioner Reginald Mugoba who confirmed the accident to ZANIS in Choma said ten of the eighteen passengers on board sustained serious injuries.
Investigations by Pemba police have revealed that the mini-bus was being driven by an unlicensed conductor who was allowed to drive while the driver was sleeping.
Mr Mugoba said Pemba police had a tough time organising transport to rush the injured to hospital because the police station does not have transport.
He has however appealed to the Ministry of Home Affairs to seriously consider allocating transport to Pemba Police .
