A pedestrian and a driver have died while two musicians , Provoice and Macelba have sustained injuries following a road accident that happened today December 4, 2022, in Dedza district.
The driver, Lapieni Malivenji, was driving a Honda Fit vehicle registration number BY 1692 from Dedza district and was driving towards Lilongwe direction with two passengers that included Macelba and Provoice on board.
Upon arrival at Hinda Turnoff after Chimbiya Trading Centre, the driver lost control of the vehicle which swerved to the extreme verge of the road before hitting a male pedestrian John Namagunda who was coming from the opposite direction.
The vehicle later overturned several times and rammed into an earth wall.
Following the impact, the driver and the pedestrian sustained severe head injuries and were pronounced dead upon arrival at Dedza District Hospital.
Macelba escaped with minor bruises and was treated as an outpatient while fellow musician Lameck Mwenewanda sustained a fractured pelvic and was referred to Kamuzu Central Hospital in Lilongwe for further treatment.
Macelba had just performed in Zomba district on Saturday night and on the fateful day was heading to Lilongwe where he was expected to partake in the bridal shower ceremony of his fiancée.
It is believed that the cause of the accident was due to fatigued driving.
Police have since advised the general public to have enough sleep before embarking on a journey.
