The accident happened at the weekend and the government has called on South Africans to be responsible when drinking.

“As a country, we need to review our laws on the access of alcohol. We need to address this as it continues to kill our people on roads and everywhere,” said Mbalula.

“There is over-access for alcohol. People are out of control. We must now put our heads together.
