Makeshift hearses on the increase on national roads

It is reported that coffins, suitcases and cadavers are often part of the luggage in vehicles and trailers on the country's roads. The makeshift hearses on the N1 and N2 are on their way to cemeteries in the Eastern Cape and various other destinations over weekends. A traffic official says over holidays and long weekends, as many as 15 bodies are transported by family members and most of them are taken to the Eastern Cape. A manager of a funeral parlour says families are often forced to do this because they don't have enough money to pay an undertaker.
