Crazy and Deadly Race in Eastern Cape

Weziwe Tikana-Gxothiwe, the Eastern Cape Transport MEC, has condemned what she described as a deadly act by motorists who were caught on video racing on a stretch of the N2 outside Qumbu.  Several people can be seen in the video cheering the drivers on as they speed by them.  “I challenge law enforcement to move with speed in tracking down and arresting all those involved in this potentially deadly act.  This kind of behaviour is completely unacceptable and those behind this deadly act have got to face the full might of the law.  Such an act can result not only in death or life-altering injuries for the drivers and their spectators, but also to innocent fellow road users, bystanders and even innocent people in the houses along the road.”

Tikana-Gxothiwe said there had to be consequences for those involved, she expressed shock that people would dare to commit such acts on one of the country’s busiest national roads.  “The road stretches from Cape Town, through the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal to Mpumalanga.  It is also a road that continues to have a high frequency of trucks, ferrying freight even during this period of a national lockdown.”
