The week ended in tragedy after a minibus taxi travelling in the Groblesdal road just after Bronkhorstspruit crashed.

The Gauteng education department on Friday afternoon released the following statement:

It is with sadness to inform that, a minibus transporting learners was involved in a horrific accident, and about 20 learners died on the scene. The accident occurred on Groblesdal road just after Bronkhorstspruit.

The MEC of Education Panyaza Lesufi is rushing to the scene. More information will be shared in due course.

Fatal minibus taxi accidents have become a common occurrence on SA’s roads and government seems ill-equipped to bring drivers to book for their transgressions.
