  1. i reside in Mthatha and i can tell you that the same root has claimed over 100 lives for the past years. The truth of the matter is, in Mthatha there is no visible policing on the roads and Mthatha has the highest traffic law violations in this country.
    People will continue dying if the authorities don’t up their performance on the roads.

Have your say
