Mish

I realize this is not an English class but your statement saying, "I have only used the Mazhandu bus twice which both are my worst experiences with them." is nonsensical.

The word 'worst' is a superlative which refers to something of the highest quality or degree. In this case the highest degree of bad.

If you had said your two experiences with this shitty bus service were your worst experiences of all the bus experiences of your life, that would have made sense. But you yourself said you only had two experiences with this shitty bus service, how can the two be the worst with them? Makes no sense whatsoever.

I thought I was the only one with such complaints , I have only used the Mazhandu bus twice which both are my worst experiences with them. The first time was when I was coming from Lusaka to the copper belt, I got on an afternoon bus which was suppose to leave Lusaka at 17 if am not mistaken but the driver wasn't around ,don't know where he went to but he came in late when it was almost 6pm, as if coming late wasn't enough, he smelled of Alcohol too, but they still allowed him to drive the bus, his driving was so careless and some people decided to drop off the bus cause of the way he was driving, they instead chose to hike which was dangerous because at that time, it had already starting to get dark and it was around a bushy area, one of the passengers called the superiors who responded n when we got to kabwe around 8pm, we found a woman from the same company who looked like she was in charge, she called the driver by the side and instead of them changing the driver, we still went ahead with the same one. The other one was on Sunday, a 10am bus, the driver was also careless with his overtaking and all vehicles coming from the opposite direction where flashing at him, when I moved to the front seat because I was going to drop-off a few kms ahead, I noticed that the driver was playing with his phone while driving n he kept on messing around, here and there e.g. trying to remove sticky papers from his side window while driving and texting as well...how can you play around when you are carrying a lot of people on the bus. These drivers really do feel Superior, one has to be taught a lesson, some of my friends have sworn not to use these buses again. How many customers do you want to lose...Do something before your business you worked so hard for is brought down by people you employed to help..

The service leaves much to be desired especially with buses that leave after 12hours .They don't start on time and seats are kept for unsuspecting would-be passengers from whom those who sell tickets expect a cut consequently keeping passengers waiting for hours to start off. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone for travels especially afternoon time.

All these tachograph and authority changes are unimplementable because bane lets be serious its down to the people with the power i.e customers. I have been of these death traps before and I have seen these drivers by urged by passengers to speed up because they want to get to their destination in time. Pa zed people have no appreciation for timetables its about who gets someone where faster. I remember being on these buses where a driver was driving reasonable and some chaps started to ngwita and complain to the driver to butukisha the bus. And also these accidents are not down to the bus drivers fault it could be down to the other motorists . If you have ever driven to siavonga you will know how some of these buggers drive like bats out of hell, I have probably had over 10 near death experiences due to some idiot driving like a daredevil

Zambians are full of shi*t. There was a thread here on DZ where the same zambians were praising Mazandu buses now things have changed. People said so many good things about mazandu, my fellow comrade shalapungu can remember that, for ka mr zambia cannot remember it because that time he was not yet born.

Zambians are fuc*ked up people, useless in nature, baboons in their thinking capacity and above all zambian lack consistency in what they are doing.

OK jocks are a side. How many people has mazandu buses killed? I like post bus and Ingwe buses. Why. You remember how many people were killed in Chisamba by post bus yepieeeee thats good.

OK what about my favourite bus Ingwe? You know it guys Lusaka to Jozi. Do you remember how many people it burnt alive as it was passing through Zimbabwe. Yes that was excellent service for Zambians.

Idiots!!!!! I hope that mazandu bus can sort out you as well.

From meme the great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just buy and ride in your own vehicles imwe. That's the problem with you Zambians. You fail to work hard and buy cars. You shall forever be stuck with reckless Mazandu or whatever you call it buses.

Yes, that's how those two have intercourse. It wasn't me, sorry.

My wife came very close to death yesterday, on the Kitwe to Lusaka route. Bus overtook a stationary truck right in the path of an oncoming petrol tanker. The two vehicles actually scraped each other quite badly and the bus ended up off the road in the bush. Two or three more inches to the right - and 70 people would have been incinerated. The answer is simple, but it would cost: legalise for drivers' hours and speed limits and enforce these by installing tachographs in every bus. These record everything the driver and bus does, and cannot lie. It is illegal to drive a bus (or truck, and they would be the next target) any distance without a tachograph in Europe. Zambia is the 11th most dangerous country in the world to drive in terms of road deaths. All we need is for Parliament to make legislation. Yes it may put bus fares up, but then it would save lives. If enough of us complained to our MPs, something might be done.
The other solution is to bring back passenger rail services in Zambia. This is the one I prefer.

I travelled from Livingstone to Lusaka in one of these buses. It felt like we were travelling fast so I turned on my GPS. We were travelling at 159km/h! Absolutely crazy!

this Mazhandu piece of junk sounds like another operation run by a PF thieving cadre. They are the only ones who fear no consequences these days

just arrived from lusaka on a Mazhandu Bus around 17hrs and I have to say this..this driver was also reckless in his overtaking...Something should be done mwe

Re: MAZHANDU BUSES A DEATH TRAP!

YES!!!! Thank you so much for also complaining! Please search for my letter about Mazhandu. I will never ever set foot on one of their busses ever again. Their bus drivers have a serious superiority complex, they are rude and drive extremely recklessly. They also greet and all police officers on the way by name and you have no chance of any police officer even listening to you. I have called their line to complain whilst on the bus. Even though they call the driver to drive better, next time you will find the same driver using the same tricks and NOBODY else on that bus will complain. I have been told to shut up and sit down and even though begging to be let off, they refused to stop. I would suggest we all if we have a passenger, ask the passenger to use their phone video recorder and record people who drive like this. Get the phone numbers of all roadblocks if you travel regularly and phone ahead and tell them you have the evidence. Then you insist on seeing that person charged. We have no choice, RTSA and traffice police are doing nothing.
