Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga said the Mission in New Delhi, India, has received with deep sorrow the demise of a  Zambian national, Peter Mwamba, a 3rd year Civil Engineering Student, in a tragic road traffic accident

The High Commissioner said the deceased was in the company of his colleague, Dennis Musukwa, a 3rd yr Pharmacy Student, who is in a critical condition.

Ms Kapijimpanga said the accident occurred around 19:00 hours Indian time (15:30 hours Zambian time) on October 31, 2018.

“Information shows that they were hit by a truck in a hit and run tragedy as they were on a motorcycle and a good Samaritan by the name of Ishy took the accident victims to the hospital,” she said.

“I have dispatched an officer from the Embassy to get more information in Gujarat State, about 1087 kilometres away from the Indian capital New Delhi, and help in anyway necessary,” she said.

Ms Kapijimpanga said the Zambian Mission in New Delhi and the student’s populace in India were deeply saddened by the untimely accident and urged the families to remain strong in the trying moment of difficulty as the students were promising.
