STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S EXECUTIVE MAYOR, PATRICIA DE LILLE
On behalf of the City of Cape Town, I wish to extend our sincere condolences to the families of the 13 victims who died in the fatal bus crash on the N1 near Touws River in the early hours of Sunday morning.
One of the victims, 24-year-old Zizipho Juliet Mnqanqeni, is the daughter of a City employee, Abigail Mnqanqeni.
The City is saddened by the news of these lives which were cut short in such a tragic manner.
We carry Abigail Mnqanqeni and all other family members and friends of the other victims in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
A number of passengers are still recovering in hospital and we extend our wishes to them and their families and pray that they will make a full recovery from their injuries.
