Statement on the death of 29 people in Kwaggafontein
12 November 2013
The ANC Youth League mourns the passing away of 29 citizens on Moloto Road near Kwaggafontein on Monday night. The ANC Youth League passes its condolences to the families and friends of the deceased. We would request the Mpumalanga Provincial Task Team of the ANC Youth League to accompany the ANC led provincial government officials on their visits to the families and hospitals. We want them to ensure that the support that the provincial government seeks to offer families and the affected do cater for the needs of the kids of the deceased and assess the effect on young people who might be busy with their examinations and other academic activities.
We are not interested in knowing how the accident happened as there will be many excuses from all involved, what we need is a commitment from the South African Bus Operators Association (SABOA) and the Road Freight Association (RFA) that they will talk to their members to frequently re-skill their drivers and to ensure that all the trucks and busses are kept in proper road-worthy conditions at all times. As the ANC Youth League, we feel that it is our constituency that is affected most by these bread-winner taking accidents that are now happening almost twice every month mostly because of trucks and busses. We would be making appointments to meet-up with SABOA & RFA on our call for road worthy fleet and well-trained drivers.
