In Africa, most of our commercial vehicles plying our roads are old and weak and do not meet the road worthy standards.
This has caused needless accidents leading to the lost of precious lives in most parts of Africa. The safety measures on our roads are next to non-existent.
Vehicle owners and drivers have collectively failed their passengers and duty bearers who are supposed to check on them to make sure the right thing is done are also sitting aloof while the needless acc!dents keep claiming lives on daily basis.
