IFP Saddened by Death of Two Boys From Delft

22 April 2014.

  

The IFP is deeply saddened by the death of two young boys, Siyamthanda Madlantse and Andakhe Qoyi, who were killed in a hit-and-run incident over the Easter weekend while playing with friends in Symphony Way in Delft. 

 

It is deeply saddening to see our children die while at play, because of the negligent and reckless driving of some drivers.  It is a parentís worst experience to bury their children; as the IFP we send out heartfelt sympathy and sincere condolences to the families of the two boys.

  

We hope the driver will be sent to jail, if found guilty, for the pain he has caused the two families.

  

The IFP urges the Western Cape Provincial Department of Community Safety to erect a fence that will separate the walkway from Symphony Way. The provincial government should also make a park in the area for children to play in, so that they can play far away from busy roads.
