Families of three netball players are currently mourning after loosing their loved ones who were involved in an accident.
The three players together with one official part of the SA Netball team, passed away after their bus got involved in an accident today in the Eastern Cape while travelling to a tournament.
Speaking about the accident and loosing the players, President of Netball South Africa being Cecilia Molokwane said "As Netball South Africa we are deeply saddened by this news, loosing lives is never an easy thing to deal with, we are devastated by the news and we would like to send our deepest, sincere and heartfelt condolences to families who have lost loved ones. We are all in mourning, the people that have passed are part of Netball and we are heartbroken by all of this".
It is so sad that players passed away on their way to a tournament. It is unfair that they had to prepare a tournament that in the end, they did not get to be part of because the rules of the road were not followed. Those responsible for the accident must be arrested and be dealt with even though the players will never return but atleast it will bring closure to their loved ones.
Road users must at all times remember to follow the rules of the road especially now that it is a festive season and roads will be more than busy. It is better for a person to avoid the road than to drive while knowing that he or she is not a perfect condition for driving putting the lives of others at risk. If it can start with the road users then these many accidents that continue to claim people's lives will be decrease in numbers.
