RTMC Spokesperson Simon Zwane, “We expect that it will take couple more days before any conclusion can be reached, because part of it will have evolved a mechanical investigation on the bus itself. We also have to check if there are any clues that can be obtained from that and that can take a couple of days before we can get an idea of what really happened.”
