"Bwana, I have a puncture and I have no spare wheel"
This is what the driver of the Kenworth truck told me at my home one Sunday in Kitwe, Zambia. So I loaded up a vanette with a couple of spares and some tools and collected my team.
Upon reaching the truck just North of Lusaka, I found the horse (tractor unit) had indeed got a couple of punctures but the back axles had been nearly torn off when he jack-knifed on a straight, dry road!
It took two days to recover the Kenworth - nothing unusual, these incidents happened quite often ;-)
