Festive season and new year message from Premier of limpopo, Mr Chupu Mathabatha
The joyous festive season is upon us, we can already feel the love, joy and warmth that come with the season. We are also drawing a curtain on what has been eventful year, 2017.
Traditionally, the festive season is a special period of family reunions and spiritual rejuvenation for majority of the people of our Province and beyond.
On behalf of the Provincial Government, we wish all the residents of our beautiful province a merry Christmas and a truly prosperous New Year.
We call on the residents of Limpopo to use this festive season to recommit themselves to the principles of family, friendship, love and peace.
We are also confident that we will use this period to open our hearts wide with generosity so as to never forget that we are each other’s keeper. We can each make this, a truly special season to everyone by sharing the little that we have with the less privileged.
Sadly, it is during this merry season that as a Province we lose so many lives on our roads. We call on all road users to be vigilant and patient on the road so that we may all arrive alive.
Our law enforcement agencies and personnel have been instructed to show no mercy to any person disrespecting our traffic laws, including those who will be caught driving under the influence of alcohol, over speeding or over loading their vehicles.
We believe and hope that 2018 is going to be better that this year. Let’s come back refuelled to do even better.
Don’t drink and drive, buckle up and arrive alive!
