POLOKWANE DRIVER TRIES TO FLEE TO ZIM

South African police this morning arrested the driver of an Intercape bus which killed nine Zimbabweans, among them a toddler, in a road accident near Polokwane on Friday last week.

The bus was travelling from Harare to Johannesburg.
Limpopo police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said the man disappeared from a hospital in Polokwane at the weekend and was intercepted at Beitbridge Border Post by alert police officers.
He said the driver has been charged with nine counts of culpable homicide and will appear before a Polokwane magistrate on Tuesday.
Col Ngoepe withheld the suspect’s name pending his court appearance. Police are also still working on identifying the nine victims.
“The police in Westenburg outside Polokwane have arrested the driver of the bus involved in this horrific accident. He tried to cross the border to Zimbabwe after he was taken to hospital with other 51 injured passengers for medical treatment,” he said.
