LUSAKA, April 21 (Xinhua) -- Zambian President Edgar Lungu's motorcade was on Friday involved in another accident in the southern city of Livingstone, his office has confirmed.
Presidential spokesperson Amos Chanda said a police rider who was the lead sweeper of the presidential convoy that was heading to the airport collided with another police vehicle that was coming from the opposite direction.
He said the accident occurred when the driver of the vehicle failed to observe the rider, resulting in the collision and that the officer in the presidential convoy sustained minor injuries.
The presidential motorcade was however several minutes away from the accident scene, he added.
Last week, one officer died on the spot while three others sustained injuries when their vehicle that was part of the presidential motorcade in the northern part of the country was involved in an accident.
