ZAMBIA Police Service has dispelled the falsehood being peddled on social media that the vehicle that was involved in a road traffic accident was on the presidential escort convoy at the time of accident.

Police Spokesperson Rea Hamoonga said in a statement, that the vehicle in question is not used on the presidential escort convoy duties but rather is used by traffic officers to check the deployment of officers on the route.

Mr Hamoonga said police in Lusaka have since charged Namuyemba Lyapa aged 32 of Lusakas Nyumba Yanga for the offence of Careless driving Contrary to Section 154 of the Road traffic Act NO.11 of 2002.

“This was after a head on collision that occurred on 2nd December, 2021 at 19:00 hours at the Junction of Mosi-O-tunya and Tokyo way (ring road) involving a Nissan Almera ZP 198 C driven by Sergeant Nkwashi Hillary and Nissan Murano registration number BAR 2206 driven by Namuyemba Lyapa,” he said.

He explained that the accident happened when the driver of the Nissan Murano was approaching from South towards North and failed to give way to the Nissan Almera which was approaching from the opposite direction and was turning right when the traffic lights indicated the arrow sign hence the collision.

Mr Hamoonga added that the Nissan Almera had a broken left head lamp, bonnet, grill and front bumper while the Nissan Murano had a depressed front bumper.

This accident occurred when the driver had knocked off duty on his return to his duty station.
