L/stone teacher dies in road accident

A TEACHER of Sianalumba Basic School in Livingstone has died while her one-year-old baby survived after the vehicle she was in with her husband and other family members overturned.

In an interview after receiving treatment at Livingstone General Hospital yesterday, Yent Tende, 31, the brother of the deceased, said he did not know what happened as he was asleep at the back of the Mitsubishi van registration number GRZ 930BX and only found himself on the road.

“We were eight; all from the same family in the vehicle, travelling from Monze to Livingstone. We left Monze around 22:00 yesterday (Sunday) and stopped over in Choma, where we slept and resumed the journey around 03:00 hours. Just about 30 kilometres before Livingstone I just felt the van swerve and when I woke up, I found myself on the road and I dragged myself away from the road,” Tende said.
