“To lose family and friends through avoidable circumstances such as road accidents is extremely painful. Dreams are shattered abruptly, bread-winners are lost and the entire family become devastated.

“The nation ultimately loses quality human resource, which is essential for our national resources and I extend my deepest condolences, and that of the Regional Coordinating Council, to families of the deceased”, the Regional Minister said in a statement issued on Monday.
