The court case for the accident was held yesterday. Abdallah was – as we knew – in the clear (though in Africa, given rife corruption, one can never be absolutely confident that evidence alone will be sufficient; police reports and pictures might be a waste of time in the face of an opportunist judge).
The driver of the other vehicle, which swerved right across the road into our path, was not in possession of any of the appropriate paperwork. Nor was his car insured. He was fined T.Shs 30,000/- which equates to just over ten quid, or 20 bucks.
I expect that taught him a lesson. I expect that with such hefty fines we can all rest assured Africa’s roads are going to be safer places.
