South African Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula has personally participated in Operation Malaisha which targeted overloaded and non-roadworthy vehicles heading to Zimbabwe and Malawi.
The major event took place on Wednesday night when the drivers least expected a sudden inspection, Mbalula said.
“Here we got a lot of unroadworthy vehicles and some of them weigh more than what is expected. All those vehicles are being impounded,” the high-profile official stated.
He urged the local motorist to adhere to the laws and not to drive under influence.
