Dethroned Chief Nhlanhlayamangwe Felix Ndiweni has proposed that thieves who steal roadside fencing should be given stiffer penalties considering that they expose the public to severe danger.
The traditional leader speaks when the number of road accidents caused by livestock have been on the rise in the country especially in the countryside or near farms. Ndiweni said:
The penalty for thieves and vandals stealing roadside fencing should be stiffened and even equated to culpable homicide! The number of road fatalities caused by livestock is astounding! Small scale farmers livestock is also put at risk because of greed!
Some added that everyone who steals fence from farms should also be punished since their actions also put lives at risk.
Meanwhile, the majority of road accidents in the country are attributed to human error and or the sorry state of roads.
