  1. I thank Calitown for getting events so quickly to their readers – it is a plus.
    May I also express my sympathy to those affected directly or indirectly. May their souls rest in peace and may their relatives be comforted by God. Speedy recovery to the injured in Jesus name. amen.
    Government should be held responsible because if they did very well in providing better jobs to youths, there will be less competition in the road transport industry, better roads and and better trained, safety conscious drivers and road users.
