They noted that the area had become a deadly black spot owing to the number of accidents that have occurred in recent months.

“About two months ago, two accidents occurred at the same place and lives were lost,” one of the witnesses stated.

Consequently, the area residents have appealed to relevant authorities to take their plea into consideration and have put safety measures to help drivers observe road safety.

“The road was being re-carpeted but the marking was not done neither do we have road signs,” a witness added.
