Mr Hichilema sends his message of condolences with a heavy heart and calls on the nation to join him in prayer and strengthening the families whose brothers and sisters have had their lives cut short.
Mr Hichilema prays and hopes that the public transport sector will ensure that lives are not lost even amidst restrictions in hours of public transport. Understandably the public transport operator are trying to meet targets due to this restriction, but they should not do it at the expense of life.
