President Jakaya Kikwete has ordered thorough investigations into the two bus accidents which killed 22 people and called for legal action against all those operating defective buses.

The directive is contained in a condolence message that the President sent to the Dodoma and Singida regional commissioners yesterday.

"If it is established that the accidents were a result of reckless driving or breach of traffic laws, all people involved should face legal actions as a way of combating the frequent accidents in the country," read part of the President's message sent to Mr Wiliam Lukuvi, the Dodoma regional commissioner and Mr Parseko Kone, his Singida counterpart, as well as the bereaved families.
