ZASA members Shadrack Mutalishi and Augustine Chisembele were kind enough to share the video and photos with us so we thought you should get to see these for yourselves. The images came with a simple warning from Shadrack, “This is Chingola / Solwezi Road, if you are going on holiday to Solwezi take a flight if there is any.”
