Within a span of ten days since the sale of alcohol being unbanned during COVID-19 lockdown level 4 and 5, that there have been 63 fatalities and 5 crashes on KZN roads. MEC Ntuli was reacting to a multi-car pile-up at Jozini in KwaZulu-Natal yesterday, which led to 8 deaths and scores of injuries.

MEC Ntuli says he has been in discussion with Police Minister Bheki Cele over this issue and he intends fast-tracking driver education in the province.
