A group of Pentecostal faith Pastors has been allowed by government to hold prayers against the continued accidents on the Great north road and other parts of the country which have been on the rise under the PF regime.
Reliable sources have told the Zambian Watchdog that the prayers will be held at Kabwe’s Ebenezer Cathedral of Pentecost off the Great North Road on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
‘It is true they will hold prayers against accidents. Government was at first hesitant in accepting the request but they have finally given in. They have decided to hold the prayers at a church which is right off the road where these fatalities have occurred, the venue is Ebenezer Cathedral of Pentecost, you will know about the program of events,” said a government source.
On the eve of the first anniversary of the fatal Chibombo accident which claimed over 50 lives when a Zampost bus collided with a foreign truck five people died on the spot when a bus they were travelling in lost control and overturned near the same area, while another bus collided with a car driven by an officer cadet near Chindwin barracks in Kabwe but all the passengers escaped death, though they suffered injuries.
