We learnt with great shock and sadness about the horrific accident that claimed the lives of so many people yesterday.
We extend our sympathies to those who have lost loved ones. We pray for those who mourn the injured and the medical teams that are assisting them.
We abhor the callous and irresponsible approach of transport operators who, in trying to make a few Rands, compromise the safety of our people. We appeal to the authorities to deal firmly with the owner and driver if negligence on their part can be proved, or if it can be shown that the vehicle was unroadworthy.
