Johannesburg - KwaZulu-Natal Transport MEC Willies Mchunu on Sunday called on motorists to adhere to rules following the death of six people in the South Coast.

"I appeal to all motorists to respect the rule of law. Let us all work together in saving lives of innocent people on the road," he said.

On Saturday night, a bakkie travelling from Durban to Mthatha veered out of control and overturned on the N2 in Ezinqoleni on the South Coast, killing four people instantly.

The other two died in hospital while seven others were hospitalised with injuries.

"It is unbelievable that we are losing so many people on provincial roads. Many of these accidents are caused by reckless drivers who disregard the rule of law.

"The accidents we are witnessing these days are unacceptable. The tragic death of six people this weekend must be a wake-up call to road users. " said Mchunu.

He said the accident happened as the province was mourning the death of more than 20 people who died last weekend in various accidents, including the R61 accident which killed six people in St Michaels.
