Road Accident

Ukhozi FM's Ayanda Msweli Was Traumatized When He Wrote His Book

The rising numbers of road accident rates has made Ukhozi FM Traffic Reporter Ayanda Ngwenya Msweli publish a book based on the strategies to avoid this.

Msweli is an author of a book titled Qapheqolo Njengonwabu : Ngwenya

Many will remember that Msweli once worked as a traffic police officer at Durban Metro before completing his B Tech Road Safety and Transport Management course at Tshwane University of Technology.

His hard work and knowledge made Qatar government invite him to be a guest speaker at Road & Traffic Logistics Qatar Evolution Assembly and Expo conference , which was held in September 2019.

Msweli revealed that he was traumatized when he was doing a research on his book.

'I found myself suffering from depression because of the sad incidents explained by some of the road accident victims.' Stated Msweli

He mentioned that some of the stories included in his book are stories of people explaining the pain they went through after losing both their legs in a road accident.

'These people stood up and did something about their lives as one of them is now a Talk show presenter' stated Msweli who is also an Road Safety ambassador at the department of transport.

He said it doesn't end there as he also teach community members on what steps to take when involved in a car accident.

'The first thing to do is to write a report about the incident. In this book we have shared different methods that one can use to write a report. This book explains the importance of safety on roads.' Continued Msweli

He said the difference between Qapheqolo Njengonwabu : Ngwenya and K53 is that his book doesn't only focus on road signs but also on incidents that happen on and off the road. It took him a year to put together his book as he wanted it to have more rich and deep knowledge.

'None of the information included in this book is fiction, i have ensured that i researched and confirmed that the people i spoke to were really affected.' Concluded Ayanda

He said this book can be used as a safety guide to prepare drivers before taking a trip. Ayanda Msweli's book costs R320 including delivery.
