Local Government suspends bus contract

The Western Cape government has suspended the contract of the company whose bus was involved in an accident in which two pupils died near Malmesbury in the Swartland last month. Education MEC Cameron Dugmore has called for the immediate suspension of the contract. Michaela van Rooyen and Heather van Wyk died when a bus, transporting 54 learners from the Anne Pienaar Memorial Primary School to their homes, overturned about 12 kilometres from the school, injuring a further 15 learners and the driver. The suspension follows a departmental probe into the accident that revealed the school had not approved the use of the vehicle to transport the pupils.
