JOHANNESBURG: South Africa's government said at least 27 people, including children, have been killed in a multi-vehicle accident in Limpopo province.
The statement by President Cyril Ramaphosa's office said a minibus, truck and delivery vehicle crashed on Friday on a major highway between Mookgophong and Kranskop.
Ramaphosa said, "It is all the more worrying considering that barely a month ago 11 people lost their lives on the same stretch of road when a bus overturned.
" Neither the presidency nor emergency responder ER24 released details on what caused the accident.
South Africa's Road Traffic Management Corporation says 14,050 traffic deaths were recorded in 2017 alone.
