Two passengers were killed in a Jeep accident between Rizua sub-township and Lailenpi villages of Matupi Township, Chin state, Myanmar on 6 February 2014.
The dead were identified as Pu Khai Lau, the owner of the Jeep and the driver, who died on the spot. The Jeep owner from Cangbawng block of Matupi was loading construction instruments of Capaw village primary school which was contracted by Pu Khai Lau. The brakes of the jeep failed near Zau Mang village, said a local.
“The road is bad and even motorcycles find it difficult to negotiate and it is very dangerous” said Salai Bicho.
The road was constructed by the local people during the military regime in 2007 and 2008. The road connects Hakha, the capital of Chin state, Rizua and Matupi Town. In
2014 the newly elected democratic government of Myanmar sanctioned funds for Rizua- Lailenpi motor road which is being built by the Canaan Development Company Ltd. but work is yet to start.
