The Western Cape transport department is probing a minibus crash that occurred on Friday outside Parliament in Cape Town’s CBD.
On Monday Western Cape Transport MEC Daylin Mitchell said he had tasked his department with probing the accident which left several school children injured.
The 16-seater taxi was transporting 20 pupils and two adults when it crashed outside Parliament.
It is still not clear what caused the accident.
The children, aged between six and 14 sustained injuries ranging from serious to minor.
Mitchell said the driver of the minibus taxi did not have a driver’s or operating licence and the vehicle was also unlicensed.
The Western Cape transport department has urged parents to check the operating licences of scholar transport vehicles.
Meanwhile, the police’s Frederick van Wyk said a case of reckless and/or negligent driving has been registered.
