By: Maano Nekhavhambe

Honourable Stanley Chupu Mathabatha accompanied by the National Department of Transport Deputy Minister Ms Sindisiwe Chikungo have led a delegation of the Executive Council to a mass funeral service of 18 victims who died in a horrific multiple vehicle accident that happened on the N1 between Kranskop and Nyl Plaza two weeks ago.

 

Thousands of mourners of the bereaved families and different dignitaries gathered at the Senwabarwana’s Ben Seraki stadium, Blouberg Local Municipality, to bid an emotional farewell to their loved ones on Saturday 27 October 2018.

A truck carrying cements lost control and veered into oncoming traffic and collided with four vehicles, including a 22-seater minibus and a bakkie. The two vehicles caught fire on impact on the area with High Accident Zone alert.

“Your feeling of loss is also a feeling that has engulfed us. The pinching pain you are experiencing at this moment is a pain we also bear as the government and the people of Limpopo. We have come here as government, as leaders and as the people of Limpopo.” Said Mathabatha

To honour the names and memories of the departed deceased, the Limpopo Provincial Government will recommit to the message of road safety every single day.

Government rely on individuals who utilises the road to adhere to road safety regulations and to be patient. The N1 road has claimed more than 30 victims since the month of September.
