Scholar transport safety in the spotlight

Johannesburg – A taxi driver involved in an accident while taking learners to school remains behind bars.

At least nine learners have been killed and 10 other injured when their scholar transport overturned on the Mpuluzi Bridge in Mpumalanga.

Families are at Embhuleni Hospital to identify the bodies of their loved ones.

Mpumalanga Community Safety spokesperson Moeti Mmusi said the department will support families and learners with psychosocial support.

“The department … will be working closely with the other stakeholders including Education and DSD to ensure that families get all the adequate support they need,” said Mmusi.
