Written by  Alex Mwangosi

An AXA Bus was on Thursday involved in a road accident at Chiweta hills in Rumphi district along M1 Road.



Eye Witnesses say the bus lost control of brakes while descending Chiweta which forced the driver to direct it to a wall of the hill.

They added that when the bus hit the wall it stopped and every person on board survived to what they termed would have been a serious fatal accident.


The Bus, registration number AXA 28, was traveling from Mzuzu to Chitipa via Karonga.

Some five years ago a similar accident occurred in Chiweta involving Kumwenda`s Bus claiming more than 22 lives after developing brake failure.
