A 36-year-old driver has been fined K600, 000 for causing death by reckless driving in Blantyre, according to Chileka police.

Tiyakhulenji Chitseko was driving with steel metal bars and flat sheets on a trailer when he failed to negotiate a roundabout and hit three pedestrians and eight stationary vehicles.

One pedestrian, Mrs. Teleza Paulo, died on the spot.

Chitseko pleaded guilty and was fined, with K300, 000 going to the deceased’s family as compensation.

The prosecutor asked for a stiffer punishment due to the increase in such cases in Chileka.
