      I guess these guys should have written, ‘a very terrifying accident’ & not the word ‘terrific’ they have chosen to use.

        They meant “Traffic” – This is where spell check fails one. One needs to study Comm Skills to be a good journalist.

      Nothing wrong with the word. Synonyms for terrific -terrible – tremendous – dreadful – frightful – horrible

    This portion of the road new Mwaiseni Shopping Centre is very bad! Motorists have even improvised it into a four lane stretch because it is so bad! Chingola MPs please push for a major road rehabilitation for Chingola!

    Katz, look it up! Terrific can either be something splendid or very good, OR it can be something that fills one with terror; something terrifying…

    I saw this accident at around 20hrs on Saturday thank God the driver survived he had a bottle of MOSI.However a few issues i observed was 1. the trailer had no number plate 2.the crushed copper ore transported could have been stolen from some mines as the driver bolted head only 3.the RDA should work toward rehabilitating of this portion of the road as its the link to DRC and rain season is coming.4.If the road was wide enough the corolla driver would have used other alternative.napela

    Its note always we should put the blame on Government
    our own carelessness on the the road. Think about the bottle of MOSI the corolla driver was holding according to Cris. Aka bwalwe taketika

    why should an accident be dubbed terrific? Property was lost injuries incurred and you call that terrific! That was a terrible accident. Sad reading

  25. duh!

    October 8, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    This is why we need some of the 750 000 000 million euro bond to go towards maintaining the rail line . And no trucks carrying heavy goods should be allowed on our Roads. All transporters should be using the rail instead of the roads they are causing alot of accidents and damanges to our Roads.

    God is great. The driver should turn to God if he is not christian.

    Sad ending. The Mosi bottle died before it could reach the next nearest bar.
    Thanks to God you survived. Money is no issue, you buy a better car nest time my pal Ernest.
