  2. That driver is evil he almost killed us about a month ago near the turn off to Ndola girls. He was driving so dangerously and pushed us off the road. We almost crushed but God had mercy on us. We followed the bus and i took a picture of the number plate. We called RTSA toll free several times but there was no response i feared for the passengers on that bus. Then my husband said he knew the brother in law for the owner of the bus and he called him and asked him to tell his brother in law to remove that dangerous driver. If they had taken heed probably this could have been avoided.
    It is so sad.
