This accident was caused by wreckless driving. We don't have buses carrying to the capacity of 103, this was an overload which has contributed to this horrible accident. Some of our bus drivers and owners are greedy, that is why they always make overloads. Basotho! please don't adopt bad South African style, overloading buses and taxis is the South African style, please bus/taxi drivers we value our lives!!! You drivers! have to comply with transport regulations! ok?

U r right and for that matter very right, but on the other hand please understand the situation, the same day(this is according to the MP ea Likhetlane on Harvest this Morning)ho ne hona le li Pirate taxis on that route that ended in some squable and apparantly the police chipped in and a number of taxis were cought, hence inadequate transport. the bus in picture was on its last trip(though the bus itself e tsofetse)bo-'marona ba lifemeng tsa maputsoe ba ne ba sena transport ea hoea hae and they were all squezzed in that oldtimer bus. ofcourse that was an overload which by all means we have to avoid, but geven the situation, these people couldnt sleep there, they had to go home but fate was not on their side.
May the souls of all the departed rest in peace untill the coming of the Christ.

Ha ho be joalo (ke hore ba robale ka khotso)! Ke utloa your line of thinking and I understand the desperation those people might have been in, but the driver, knowing very well that he was carrying more than it was required, should have driven at a slower pace than normal. In that way, it gives him a slim chance of controlling the vehicle. He may have needed only that. Joale ba ea jaha!!!

You are very right. Joale kea kholoa batho ba Molimo because they were desperate ba t'saba le ho mo kopa hore a khanne hantle. Ke tlasa ona maemo ana batho ba roakuoang ke baqhobi ba likoloi tsa baeti Afrika Boroa. We seem to adopt everything from them that it is likely the poor workers thought he would jeer at them.
