Limpopo holds a prayer for Deadly Road Accidents. Premier spokesperson Kenny Mathivha said the Premier has been in touch with the Provincial Commissioner, General Ledwaba, who has already established a Special Task Team to investigate these unfortunate incidents.
Limpopo Premier Chupu Mathabatha has learnt with shock of the criminal element currently said to be operating along the N1 between Kranskop and Mokopane.
In the lastest incident, about 6 people perished on Saturday when a truck that was avoiding alleged robbers caused an unfortunate accident which resulted in the deaths of 6 people.
“As a Province, our concerns are with our people, we can’t afford to lose people in large numbers. “The Province together with National Department of Transport will be holding a National Prayer Day near Mookgophong next Sunday,” said Mathivha.
The National Prayer Day is expected to assist in the spiritual cleansing of the road. More than 40 people have already died in the past two months in this ‘deadly stretch of the road’ with six more people just yesterday.
The Premier has urged drivers to be vigilant and report any unusual activities to the police along this road.
