An Axa Bus travelling from Chitipa to Mzuzu, was involved in an accident on Saturday near Kang’oma River in Mzuzu after a front tyre burst. According to an eye witness, Francis Kayila, the bus was travelling at an average speed when the tyre burst.

Mzuzu Police spokesperson Maurice Chapola confirmed of the accident, and said four people sustained minor injuries and have since been treated as outpatients. The rest of the passengers escaped without injuries.—JOHN CHIRWA, Staff Writer
