Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele has called on public transport drivers to refuse to undertake long-distance trips without a relief driver.

The call comes after yet another dreadful crash involving a bus and a taxi on the N2 between Mthatha and Kokstad in the Eastern Cape.

Twelve people lost their lives and five were injured.

Ndebele says in a statement that according to preliminary reports, fatigue may have contributed to the crash.
