Statement by Bongani Msomi – UDM Secretary General
As we approach the holiday season, the United Democratic Movement (UDM) calls on drivers to be more vigilant and ensure that travellers reach their destination safe. We must curb the incidents of road rage; drivers and passengers must not be impatient.
Pedestrians also must abide by the law and rather use bridges to cross highways. They must also not jay-walk while intoxicated.
Let there be no injuries and fatalities as we usually witnessed, we can achieve this by making sure that drivers obey the rules of the road and rest if tired.
The UDM also calls for visibility of law enforcement officials – it is their job to keep roads and people safe.
Owners must ensure that their vehicles are road worthy.
Please accept our well-wishes for those who observe Easter and those who are due for a period of respite, should come back rested.
