Masemola extends condolences to victims of seven in Limpopo


Limpopo’s new MEC for Transport and Community Safety Namane Dickson Masemola, has extended heartfelt condolences to the families of sixteen victims who died in seven separate accidents which happened in various parts of Limpopo province over the past weekend.

In two major accidents which claimed the lives of four and six lives, reckless driving is suspected to the main cause.

In the first major accident which happened on the R71 near Mageng village after Boyne, an Isuzu Ldv was overtaking another motor vehicle when it collided head on with an oncoming Ford Ldv. In this accident four passengers died.

In another serious crash which happened in the early hours of this morning at Chuenespoort, a Renault sedan failed to negotiate a curve when it collided head-on with an on-coming VW Polo leading to six people losing their lives.

“As we convey our deepest condolences and wish a speedy recovery to those who are injured, we continue to insist that motorists must drive carefully on road. Reckless overtaking, fatigue and speeding have been proven to be one of the major causes of road fatalities. I appeal to road users to exercise patience towards one another and obey the rules of the road at all times. Of importance, is to remember that speed kills. Chances of one dying in a collision multiply two fold if one is speeding,” said MEC Masemola.
