You don’t drink and jaywalk on the road! – KwaZulu-Natal Transport Department

The message was brought home through edutainment

As MUT students and staff prepare for the winter break, they will be carrying a very important message to their communities around the country – “Road safety is everyone’s business. Let us all do whatever is possible to keep ourselves safe”. This message was carried by the KwaZulu-Natal Transport officials and the Road Accident Fund (RAF) to MUT staff and students on 20 June 2018 when they visited the University. Nkosenhle Mngadi, the Chair of Youth Road Safety in KwaZulu-Natal, said they saw it fit to communicate this important message to the youth during the Youth Month. “Our biggest problem is that majority of people that are dying on our roads are the youth between the ages of 18-35. We would like them to be aware of what they can do to bring down the number of accidents on the roads,” said Nkosenhle. He was supported by Philile Mkhize, the Regional Communication Officer at Road Accident Fund. Philile said they informed the students about the services the RAF offers. MarComms’ Innocent Dimba thanked the Department of Transport and RAF for partnering with MUT, and added that road safety and awareness was everyone’s business.
