People in the area were seen helping themselves with fuel in buckets and jags. because petrol is very expensive in South Africa people are looking for any means necessary to survive and this and support lot of people under pressure because the petrol prices is high.
Only petrol because also the cooking oil in South Africa extremely is been when we grow up will never thoughtthat one day you will have to buy a 2 l of cooking oil with a hundred Rand because it's used to cost most R37.00 and now it is almost R120.00.
people were seeing risking their lives trying to collect free petrol after the truck which deliver petrol overturned leaving the driver and people without controlling their petrol that they deliver and then people so the opportunity and run just to get petrol.
you must understand that petrol is very flamable and if one person can light a cigarette or just a match next to the truck those people will die and the driver won't be responsible for their death because they didn't have any agreement.
Below are comment made by people.
Not the truck companies fault if people steal from a vehicle plastered with warning stickers all over it, explodes.
If the truck is on fire, the company will have to pay for lives lost.
