Written by Lethiwe Mdluli on 21 August, 2020
The case against Jozini truck driver, Sipho Ntuli, who crashed into a number of people in the small town in northern KZN has again been postponed.
Ntuli appeared in the Umbombo Magistrate’s Court, only for the case to move to another day angering masses of community members.
The truck driver has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and eight counts of culpable homicide in connection with the horrific Jozini truck crash.
Eight people were killed in the incident and over 30 others injured in June.
On June 10, Ntuli lost control of an empty sugar cane truck he had been driving on Jozini’s main road, ramming into nine vehicles before ploughing into a market area where street vendors had set up shop.
The case was postponed last month for further investigation and has again been postponed until 3 September for his bail application.
