IFP to Join Jane Harley's Fight for Transport's RTI Victims
11 November 2014.
The IFP has thrown its weight behind the fight
waged by Ms Jane Harley to ensure that there is justice for the
families of the victims of the KwaZulu-Natal Department of
Transport's Road Transport Inspectorate tragedy of 2012. According
to yesterday's Witness newspaper, Ms Harley has resolved upon
embarking on a crusade to ensure that the Commission's Report is
released and that the government pays the victims.
"The IFP promised that it will forward a question
to the Premier with a view to pressurising him to release the whole
report of the commission and to ensure that justice is being done to
those who lost their lives," said IFP Member of the Provincial
Legislature, Mr Joshua Mazibuko.
"First, as the IFP we commend Ms Jane Harley for
the fight she is taking up on behalf of the victims of the
KwaZulu-Natal Department of Transport's RTI tragedy of
2012.Secondly, we commit ourselves to partner with her in this moral
crusade she is involved in. We intend to challenge the Premier to
tell the Legislature as to when he will release the whole report as
well as ensure that reparations are paid to the families of the
deceased and to the wounded," continued Mr Mazibuko.
"It is completely unacceptable that up to now the
government has not moved an inch to ensure that justice is seen to
be done to the victims. Even more shocking is to know that even the
four implicated officials have not been brought to book," concluded
"Ms Harley's is a just fight worthy to be
