    Team to probe death toll, cause of accident

    By Sylivester Domasa

    27th October 2011

    Chief Traffic Commander, Mohammed Mpinga

    The government has formed a committee to investigate the cause of the accident involving Deluxe Coach bus in which several passengers were burnt to death, on Tuesday outside Kibaha in the Coast region.
    The Chief Traffic Commander, Mohammed Mpinga told reporters yesterday that the team will investigate and come up with the actual number of people who were burnt to ashes after taking the ashes to the government chemist for tests.

    He said members of the committee have been selected from the traffic police department, the Surface and Marine Transport Regulatory Authority (Sumatra) and the Tanzania Bus Owners Association (Taboa).

    Mpinga had earlier clarified that the force was sure of the five people who died on the spot, but the whereabouts of eight other passengers believed to have been in the bus could not be explained.
    He said five skulls were found but eight other people would have to be identified through subjecting the ashes to DNA tests.

    According to police report, the front-right tyre of the speeding bus burst, causing it to leave the road, overturn and catch fire at an area between Kongowe and Misugusugu along Dar-Morogoro highway.

    The bus registration number T 534 AAT heading to Dodoma from Dar es Salaam started its journey with 42 passengers on board, with five others boarding at Kibaha and bringing the total number of passengers, driver and conductors to 49.

    Police said that 36 passengers escaped from the burning bus, some with injuries.
    When contacted the coast Regional Police Commander Ernest Mangu said all except two of the 38 injured people had been discharged from Tumbi hospital.

    Meanwhile President Jakaya Kikwete has directed police to make extra efforts to boost road safety in order to reduce persistent road accidents, which cost lives of innocent civilians and their properties.

    Kikwete said this when he sent condolences to the families of the dead through the Coast regional commissioner, Mwantumu Mahiza following the fatal road accident.

    "The accident has shocked and made me very sad (really!?...and what have you done since 2005 to reduce the numbers of road accidents in Tanzania!?) . But this should serve as a challenge to the police and other road safety security organs to intensify efforts to make our roads safer," he said.
    "We want road safety laws to be enforced including the safety of vessels and passengers. The police must ensure that this is implemented," said the president in his condolence message.

    He reminded traffic police to not only jump into action when an accident has happens, but to remain alert at all times, enforcing strict road safety rules.
    "This problem will persist and grow if you do not rigorously enforce safety rules by holding accountable all those who break the road safety rules and regulations," he said.

    Tume: a finger tip solution to all our problems!!
    Tume hazitatusaidia kamwe! Principle muhimu ya kufanya accident/incident investigation ni kutambua chanzo, kuchukua learned lessons na 'KUFANYA MABADILIKO'. Sasa hii tunaijadili kwa sababu moto ndo issue mpya ama? Tunaandika ripoti zinaenda kuozea kwenye makabati zikipambwa na mayai ya mende! As if hatujui vyanzo vya ajali zetu!

    Tume, Tume, Tume, Tume, Tume, Tume Aaaaarrrgggghhhhh....Zimeshaundwa tume chungu nzima kuchunguza madudu mbali mbali nchini kwetu na tume hizo zimetumia mabilioni chungu nzima lakini nchi bado inaenda mrama tu, ajali za barabarani zinazidi kuongezeka na kuwamaliza Watanzania. Hivi tunahitaji tume kweli ya kutumia mabilioni katika kutafuta chanzo cha ajali nyingi za barabarani!? Kwa nini maaskari wa usalama barabarani wasishinikizwe ili kuhakikisha wanafanya kazi zao barabara na hivyo madereva kufuata sheria za barabara na madereva ambao hawastahili kuwepo barabarani ama kwa kutozijua sheria za barabara, kutoona au kutokuwa na leseni za barabara kukamatwa na kuhakikisha wanachukuliwa sheria zinazostahili? Hivi tunahitaji tume ya kutumia mabilioni kuhakikisha magari yote ambayo hayana hadhi ya kuwepo barabarani hayaruhusiwi kuingia barabarani!? Nchi yetu imeoza kabisa kutokana na hiki chama cha mafisadi.

    Mheshimiwa Dr JK, Hatuhitaji tume.Kauli yako ina mamlaka.Watangazie trafic kuwa unawapa mwezi usisikie ajali halafu uone kama hali haijawa shwari.Tatizo washauri wako wanakupa ushauri ambao hauonyeshi kama una mamlaka na badala yake matamko yako yanaonyesha na wewe unatuma rambirambi na kulalamika kama sisi.Toa tamko lenye mamlaka halafu uone polisi watakavyojipanga vizuri.Usicheke na kima watamaliza mahindi shambani.
