According to trucking publication FleetWatch, for every 10 heavy trucks on our roads, between six and seven of them are unroadworthy.

Joining CNBC Africa’s Tumisho Grater for this discussion are Gavin Kelly, Road Freight Association’s Technical and Operations Manager and Fleetwatch editor Patrick O’Leary.
