South African MP witnesses car


PROVINCIAL MP Mahlakeng Mahlakeng was just unassumingly inspecting roads in a North West Province constituency in the presence of an SABC news crew, when in an ironic twist of fate an accident occurred right before his eyes.

The public safety official was just explaining how more than two hundred million rands had already been spent on the particularly treacherous road, saying, “this road continues to kill,” as a car passes by the cameraman and slides into nearby fields with another car in-tow, with a local pedestrian narrowly escaping the incident.

Traffic accidents continue to claim scores of lives in South Africa, including those of tourists and even public officials.
