The visit by the delegation will also afford the ministers an opportunity to engage with the National Road Safety Authority in the Central Region on ways to ensure greater compliance with transport safety regulations, especially among commercial road users.

Preliminary investigations have blamed the incident on overspeeding from the drivers of the two passenger vehicles.

The visit by the Minister will also allow him to engage doctors and nurses treating the injured.
