Authorities to investigate allegations driver & vehicle in Cape Town minibus crash unlicensed

The cause of a minibus taxi accident in the Cape Town CBD, that left several school children injured, was still unknown on Saturday.

The crash happened outside Parliament at around 7 am on Friday morning.

The taxi was transporting 21 pupils aged between six and 14, with two adults also in the vehicle.

Western Cape Education MEC Debbie Schafer said the children, whose injuries range from serious to minor, were reportedly from 12 different schools – largely within the city bowl and Walmer Estate areas.

The MEC said, “Upon further inquiries, we have been advised of allegations that the driver and vehicle were unlicensed. We have been in contact with our colleagues from the department of transport and public works regarding the investigation of these matters and regarding what action can be taken.”
