Probe into ac­ci­dent on­go­ing

The Herald (South Africa) - - NEWS - No­maz­ima Nkosi

AN in­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Nel­son Man­dela Bay Mu­nic­i­pal­ity fol­low­ing the death of two peo­ple in­volved in a crash with a mu­nic­i­pal ve­hi­cle last week is still on­go­ing.

A se­cu­rity of­fi­cer as­signed to DA Eastern Cape leader Nqaba Bhanga was in­volved in the fatal ac­ci­dent in Zwide.

Close pro­tec­tion of­fi­cer Kgothatso Moshele was crit­i­cally in­jured while a 17-year-old man died on the scene and a 45-year-old woman died later in hos­pi­tal.

Moshele was on his way to col­lect Bhanga’s girl­friend.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion was meant to be com­pleted yes­ter­day but mu­nic­i­pal man­ager Jo­hann Met­tler said the driver had not yet been in­ter­viewed.

“Tech­ni­cal data is also still out­stand­ing from the tracker such as speed and brak­ing,” he said.

“We do not have ac­cess to our ve­hi­cle yet as there is an on­go­ing po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion and there­fore we can’t down­load tracker in­for­ma­tion as a re­sult.”

Po­lice spokes­woman Cap­tain San­dra Janse van Rens­burg said po­lice were in­ves­ti­gat­ing a case of cul­pa­ble homi­cide.

“In­ves­ti­ga­tions are still on­go­ing.”
