Condolences to the Families of Those Killed in Limpopo Bus Crash

22 November 2013    

 

 

The IFP would like to send its deepest condolences to the families of the 11 people who were killed in a bus accident in Limpopo this morning.

 

IFP spokesperson on Transport, Mr Petros Sithole MP said, "We are saddened by this accident as it comes less than two weeks after the Moloto road bus crash, where 30 people were killed when a Putco bus collided with another vehicle. Our roads have become modern day killing-fields and not a day goes by without a report of road carnage in some part of our land"

 

Our traffic laws require far stricter enforcement if we are to create a culture of road obedience and road safety.

 

Sithole further stated that, "NOW is the time for this government to pay less attention on flamboyant, ineffective campaigns and instead focus on ensuring that our traffic police are visible and that the road laws of this country are properly enforced. This culture of lawlessness on our roads must end"

 

The IFP further calls on provincial departments to constantly have traffic officials on our roads in order to reduce the number of accidents throughout the year and not just during the festive season.
