Eastern Cape pupil takes over the wheel as school driver is too drunk. Parents and local authorities in the Eastern cape were left fuming after a drunk school driver left the wheel for a pupil to take over. In the video the visibly drunk driver could be seen instructing the school pupil how to drive.
The video left many parents fuming and horrified by the incident. The incident occurred outside of Moshesh Agricultural Senior Secondary school near Matatiele in the Eastern cape. The driver was sensible enough to know that he is too drunk to seat behind the wheel as it is dangerous however his solution was far too fatal, he saw it fit to let one of the students take over the wheel for them.
Fortunately enough no one was hurt due to this reckless behavior. It has been reported that the adult responsible with these young lives has been held accountable. It’s not certain though if any criminal charges will be laid against him . However the Eastern cape education spokesman Monwabisi Mbangeni has confirmed that the operator’s contract with the government has been terminated, and the panel is now looking for an immediate replacement in order to protect the best interests of the Matatiele learners.
“It is very clear the bus was being driven by the pupil. Obviously, she does not have a code 14 licence. We can’t proceed with a person who is playing with peoples’ lives. The Eastern Cape education department has now cancelled its contract with the operator, and alternative transport arrangements for the students are being made.”
