COSATU offers its heartfelt sympathies to the families of the 10 SADTU members who tragically passed away in Limpopo

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) offers its heartfelt sympathies to the families of the 10 members of the South African Democratic Teachers' Union (SADTU), the drivers of their taxi and the truck involved in the collision who tragically passed away on the 28th of May near Polokwane, Limpopo.

This is a devastating blow to their families and loved ones, learners and colleagues, SADTU and COSATU. We wish them all the strength and our prayers during this painful time.

We urge law enforcement to investigate the possible causes of the accident, including mist on the road and to take the necessary precautions to seek to prevent and reduce future such tragedies. We appeal to all road users to be vigilant at all times. Our families cannot afford such devastating losses.

Rest in peace. Robala ka khotso.

Issued by COSATU.
