A video of a Limpopo traffic official counting up to 58 pupils coming out of a 14-seater minibus taxi has gone viral on social media.

The incident reportedly happened in Bela-Bela on Monday afternoon.

Department spokesman Joel Seabi said the taxi driver has since been arrested and the vehicle impounded.

“The vehicle was not registered with the department for any category of public transportation in the province.

“We call upon parents to ensure the vehicles that transport their loved ones are fully compliant with the law, while law enforcement officials will continue to apply zero tolerance to such lawbreakers on the roads of the province.”
