The bus company that owns a bus involved in a crash that killed 22 people in Musina, Limpopo, has expressed serious concern regarding allegations surrounding the truck driver’s licensing status and immigration status, as he was reportedly an undocumented immigrant.

Limpopo MEC for Transport, Ms Florence Radzilani told SABC that they had received reports that the truck driver was not licensed.

Venetia mine workers were burnt to death when their bus collided with a truck and caught fire in Musina on Sunday.

Both drivers are amongst those killed.

General Manager of Hope Transport Service, Pfuluwani Tshilande, says they work closely with law enforcement agencies to enforce compliance on the road.

“For the last five years that we have operated, we have done over 35 million kilometers death-free or fatalities-free. This is the first time we have actually experienced what we experienced. This driver that we lost was one of the best. He has been driving for over 13 years. We want to partner with law authorities to make sure that compliance is not only applied on one side but is also applied consistently.”
