WC councillor charged with drunk driving
An ANC councillor will appear in court on Monday, facing charges of drunken driving.
JOHANNESBURG - An ANC councillor will appear in the Midrand Magistrate's Court on Monday, facing drunken driving charges.
Kuthula Mamba, a councillor from Khayelitsha township in Cape Town, allegedly crashed his BMW into two stationary cars at a Midrand traffic light last week.
It is believed he was attending the ANC's 2012 National Policy Conference at Gallagher Estate.
While the ANC and Mamba remain tight-lipped about the accident, the owners of the two cars he allegedly rammed into on Wednesday night said he tried to talk his way out of the incident.
Henry Ndlovu, who was with his wife and child at the time of the crash, said Mamba hit his car first.
"The cops asked him to produce his driver's license and ID, but he couldn't. I told them to take a breathalyser test, but they said they did not have the machine."
Meanwhile, another man, who asked not to be identified, said the Khayelitsha councillor also tried to flee the scene.
Mamba was arrested shortly after the crash and released on R1,000 bail the following day.
