Police in Balaka have launched a manhunt for Luka Dzombe, a minibus driver, for allegedly causing an accident due to speeding after his vehicle collided with a motorcycle, leading to the death of 47-year-old Albert Patrick Kalambo.

The accident happened along the Liwonde-Balaka M8 road in Balaka District.

“Traffic report indicates Dzombe was driving from the direction of Liwonde heading Balaka with some passengers on board.
