South Africa: KZN to Launch Easter Road Safety Campaign

In a bid to drastically reduce road carnage in KwaZulu-Natal, MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison, Willies Mchunu, will on Sunday officially launch the provincial Easter holidays campaign.

The launch will take place at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Clermont.

In line with the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety Campaign 2011-2020, MEC Mchunu will also reveal intensified law enforcement plans for the Easter period and beyond.

MEC Mchunu will be accompanied by EThekwini Mayor, Councillor James Nxumalo, Members of Parliament, transport industry stakeholders and members of the public.

The launch will be preceded by a motorcade through Clermont and a People's March for Safety which will start at Clermont taxi rank and proceed to the stadium.

The march will symbolise the need for people to start acting responsibly on the roads and will highlight the importance of community safety.
