About Alfred Chipembele
Alfred Chipembele is beginning his training to take part in Cycle Zambia 2018 later this year, cycling 490 kilometres with the goal of contributing £3,650 to Transaid’s vital work in Africa to improve road safety.
Alfred comments “I have joined a mission to create road safety awareness in an effort to reduce road traffic accidents in Zambia and Africa in general. In March 2008 my own elder brother Millios Tembo – a professional driver himself just two years away from his retirement – lost his life together with his friend at a zebra crossing after being hit by a minibus driver in Lusaka. I believe many of such horrific accidents can be prevented if driver training and government road safety policy makers put more emphasis on the importance of road safety and driving standards.”
