IFP Extends Deepest Condolences to Deputy Transport Minister Chikunga

Jul 19, 2022 | Press Releases

The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), on behalf of the IFP’s Founder and President Emeritus, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi; the IFP’s President and Leader of the Official Opposition in the KZN Legislature, Hon. Velenkosini Hlabisa; as well as all IFP Members of Parliament, would like to extend their deepest condolences to the Deputy Minister of Transport, Sindisiwe Chikunga, following the passing of her son, daughter-in-law and four grandchildren in a car accident over the weekend.

The Deputy Minister and her family are in our thoughts, and we pray for comfort in this difficult time. May her son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren rest in perfect peace.

Following this tragic accident, the IFP once again wishes to highlight the urgent need for ongoing safety campaigns on our national roads and calls for such to be rolled out, particularly during peak times, such as school holidays and the festive season. We further call for traffic officials to be visible, and to conduct regular road blocks and spot-checks to ensure that road users and their vehicles are fit to drive.

Enforcing speed limits is also essential, and penalties must be large enough to deter road users that might be tempted to drive recklessly, at high speeds. The rules of the road are not there to restrict the rights of road users, but rather, to protect and safeguard lives.
