FBOA 'in the dark'

Nasik Swami
Thursday, May 29, 2014

FOLLOWING yesterday's horrific bus accident which endangered the lives of about 35 young students, landing them all in hospital, the Fiji Bus Operators Association wished the injured students a speedy recovery.

In a statement, association president Virendra Kewal said the accident would no doubt have been a traumatic experience for the primary school students.

"Our thoughts are with all of them as they recover from this traumatic experience," Mr Kewal said in the statement. "No bus operator wishes for such an event to happen on any of their trips and when it happens, the operator in question will naturally come under scrutiny."

Asked about how the accident occurred and what exactly went wrong, Mr Kewal said he was in the dark.

When asked about the roadworthiness of the bus, Mr Kewal said: "As far as we are concerned, the buses are all standard, they got their fitness certificate."
