Knysna-Plett Herald - - News | Nuus - S­taff re­por­ter

A ca­se of cul­pa­ble ho­mi­ci­de was o­pe­ned fol­lo­wing the de­ath of a 31-y­e­ar-old Ma­la­wi­an na­ti­o­nal on Sun­day 26 No­vem­ber at a­bout 20:30 in Main S­treet, Knys­na.

Ac­cor­ding to po­li­ce spo­kes­per­son Ser­ge­ant Chris S­pies, the man was tra­vel­ling on a mo­tor­cy­cle to­wards Sed­ge­field w­hen he hit the cor­ner of a pa­vement.

“He lost con­t­rol of the mo­tor­cy­cle and lan­ded on the ro­ad sur­fa­ce. The man sus­tai­ned mul­ti­ple in­ju­ries and died at the sce­ne.”

Ser­ge­ant S­pies said in­ves­ti­ga­ti­on in­to the mat­ter con­ti­nues, but ad­ded, “The­re is no in­di­ca­ti­on that a se­cond vehi­cle was in­vol­ved in this in­ci­dent.”

The na­me of the de­ce­a­sed will be re­le­a­sed la­ter. –
