    Police should be held responsible for this accident. They have 24 hr roadblocks mu road imomo, how come so many people were in 2 small vehicles when there shouldn’t be intercity travelling? Were they given free passage? Was someone given something to look the other way? Tollgate staff should also answer some very few questions. The Mhandamabgwe tollgate, what happened to allow access to fully loaded vehicles access to pass when they were told not to do that due to the corona lockdown conditions set in place.
