Otjozondjupa region records highest road casualties per 100,000 – MVA

The Otjozondjupa region, with its small population size of 158,237 people has the highest road casualties per 100,000 persons at 429, as compared to the national average of 253 casualties per 100,000 persons, according to the statistics from the Motor Vehicle Accident Fund (MVA).

MVA’s Chief Corporate Affairs Official, Surihe Gaomas-Guchu, last week said, as a transit region, Otjozondjupa recorded the highest number of fatalities, amounting to 95 lives lost over a period of five years.

In an effort to raise public awareness on general road safety in the region, Gaomas-Guchu, said the MVA commenced with a campaign, from 26 to 30 March

“The ‘MVA Fund on Wheels’ community outreach program aims to raise public awareness on general road safety, registration of new claims and addressing claim related queries,” she added.

The Fund has since called on stakeholders to engage in road safety conversation based on the region’s crash data.
