The call follows an accident that recently occurred between Mosolotshane and Moiyabana villages in which two donkey carts were involved in an accident with a Toyota Vitz at around midnight along the Lephephe-Serowe road.

Serowe Police Station Commander, Superintendent Poloko Oteng raised the concern.
