IFP Sends its Condolences to Families of 4 Killed
in Bus Accident in Durban

23rd September 2014.

  

The IFP would like to send its deepest condolences to the families of four people killed in a bus accident near Bridge City Shopping Mall, KwaMashu, north of Durban.  The IFP also wishes a speedy recovery to those injured in the accident.

 

"We are saddened by this accident. 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,” IFP Secretary-General, Ms Sibongile Nkomo said.

 

“The IFP further calls on provincial departments to have a constant presence on our roads to reduce the number of accidents throughout the year and not only be visibly present during the festive season," said Ms Nkomo.

 

"We urge road users, especially drivers, to take extra care and exercise utmost vigilance on the road. They must obey the rules of the road at all times as they are the custodians of the lives of our people on the roads. We cannot continue losing lives in this manner," continued Ms Nkomo.

 

"We also urge the law enforcement authorities to swiftly get to the bottom of the cause of this tragedy and the law must be firm on those found to have flouted any rules and regulations of the road, leading to such high fatalities," concluded Ms Nkomo.
