Minister Mackenzie condemns attack on Go George bus

1 March 2023

I strongly condemn this morning’s petrol bombing of a GO GEORGE bus in Pacaltsdorp, where fourteen passengers were treated on the scene and transferred to the George Provincial Hospital. The motive for the attack is unconfirmed at this time. I call on the South African Police Services and enforcement agencies to bring the culprits to justice as swiftly as possible.

The people of our province need dignified, safe, reliable and affordable mobility options. We will continue to work with our partners to provide commuters with public transport services that get them to work and school safely.

I have engaged with Minister of Social Development Sharna Fernandez to arrange for counselling and social support for the victims. My thoughts are with the driver and passengers who were affected by this traumatic incident.
