Pietermaritzburg - Two of the ten buses due to transport young women from uMhlathuze City to the annual Reed Dance in KwaZulu-Natal, have failed a safety inspection."Ten buses were thoroughly inspected. Two buses from an undisclosed private bus company failed the test and were sent back to the depot. The company dispatched another two buses which underwent the same inspection," said spokesperson Mdu Ncalane.He said in a statement that the city's leadership had taken it upon themselves to ensure the safety of 680 young women and their 36 minders, who would be travelling to the Royal Reed Dance at Nyokeni Palace KwaNongoma from Thursday.Councillor Mfundo Mthenjana, together with Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI) officials, had the vehicles inspected at a private testing centre in Alton, Richards Bay.Mthenjana said it was an important exercise for the city in light of the tragic accidents such as the Swaziland one last week, as well as last year’s accident at Nkwalini in KwaZulu-Natal."Our traffic officers will conduct another driver inspection, check their profiles and experiences to ascertain their records. Alcohol breathalysers will also be conducted before and during the trip, as well as before departing back on Sunday."Officers would also escort their buses from Richards Bay to Nongoma and back to monitor driver behaviour on the road.
