Limpopo MEC for Transport and Community Safety, Florence Radzilani has sent her condolences to the families.

“MEC Radzilani is saddened by the news of the passing of 6 young people near La Havana park, Malamulele, Vhembe District on the morning of 01 July 2023,” she said in a statement.

Radzilani has also raised concerns about the number of accidents caused by human behaviour on our various roads.

“Since the beginning of the year, Limpopo has reported a lot of accidents emanating from the behaviour of our people. Our people tend to ignore the rules on the roads hence the number of fatalities has risen thus far.”

She has also called Safety Promotion officials to come up with ways that will prevent accidents at night and early morning.
