Members of the Mopani Traditional Healers Association in Limpopo have called on the provincial department of roads and transport to broaden the roads that are notorious for a high incidence of crashes.

The association said it was concerned that more people continued to die due to accidents, despite the regular cleansing ceremonies they had conducted at these hotspots.

Association district coordinator Abram Tauyatswala said the affected routes included the Tzaneen-Lydenburg road and the R88 between GaSekgopo and Giyani.

He claimed that the Morutji-Deer Park road in Bolobedu was now safer after traditional healers and churches conducted a cleansing ceremony there three months ago.

Tauyatswala warned motorists driving on the affected roads to play their part by obeying traffic regulations.

He said the Mopani Traditional Healers Association was disturbed because the accidents regularly occurred at the same spots due to traffic congestion and, in some cases, reckless driving.

Tauyatswala said the GaSekgopo section of the R88 was giving them headaches because of the frequent crashes there.
