Speaking to an eye witness, he said “the driver is the DCE’s brother who always moves around with the vehicle with loud music in the company of some girls. They were even on their usual cruise when the accident occurred.”
Meanwhile, questions are being given asked as to why an official car belonging to the Assembly would be given to an outsider and not to an official driver of the Assembly.
“If this people are not official workers of the Assembly before they are using the car then, they have to be arrested. We need answers as to who gave them the authority to use the car and whether the driver is a staff of the Assembly,” an Assemblyman said on anonymity.
According to some Assembly members, they want to know the legitimate and officially assigned driver to that vehicle since it is a serious offense for unauthorised person to drive government vehicle especially out of working days.
