No one was injuredin the truck. The deceased are aged between 22 and 30 and are members of a Pretoria-based church.
“The process of their identification is still underway, but it was confirmed that one of the deceased is an international recording artist,” said provincial police spokesperson Col Moatshe Ngoepe. He added that the cause of the accidents was still unclear at that stage “…but the ongoing police investigations will tell,” said Ngoepe.
