Horror crash victims laid to rest

MOTETEMA – Scores of mourners converged in Motetema outside Groblersdal on Saturday to pay their last respects to five of the 11 victims of the recent horror crash which occurred on the N11 Road between Marble Hall and Groblersdal.

The deceased, Enos Mailula, Mighty Bapela, Elizabeth Mogale, Amos Tlou and Winnie Mabuza were buried at Motetema Cemetery during an emotionally charged ceremony attended by Limpopo Premier Chupu Mathabatha, Transport MEC Makoma Makhurupetje, Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality Mayor, Julia Mathebe and Kgoshi Rammupudu among others.

Mathabatha sent heartfelt condolences to families, relatives and friends of the deceased on behalf of government and urged the public to adhere to rules of the road at all times to avoid accidents.

“Keep to the speed limits, heed road signs and do not drive under the influence of alcohol to prevent more deaths on our roads,” cautioned Mathabatha.

Mayor Mathebe thanked members of the community for the support they offered the bereaved families, relatives and friends.

“In difficult situations such as these, we need one another more than ever. I would like to thank members of the community of Motetema for coming to support the families. As government we could not have done it alone,” said Mathebe.

Two other victims of the horrific crash were buried in the area on Sunday while others were from Siyabuswa outside Marble Hall, Ga-Marishane, Ga-Mampuru and Jane Furse.
