Gauteng Hawks boss in ICU with broken ribs & collar bone
Shadrack Sibiya was involved in an accident on the M1 North Highway on Monday night.
JOHANNESBURG - Details are beginning to emerge about a car crash involving Gauteng Hawks boss Shadrack Sibiya who is in intensive care.
Eyewitness News on Friday learnt that Sibiya underwent surgery following the crash on Monday night.
It's understood he and his attorney Victor Nkhwashu were both involved in the incident but the lawyer walked away with minor injuries.
Sibiya is currently fighting his suspension in the High Court in Pretoria, which will rule on Monday whether he can return to work or not.
The Hawks boss and his superior, Anwa Dramat, were implicated in the rendition of five Zimbabwean suspects in 2010 but have been cleared by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid).
A source close to Sibiya said he and his attorney left Sandton early on Monday morning after consulting their advocates, ahead of a court application later that day.
It's understood shortly after driving onto the M1 North; Sibiya's luxury sedan hit a puddle on the highway, aquaplaned off the road and rolled several times before coming to a stop.
While Nkhwashu walked from the incident, Sibiya sustained several broken ribs as well as a broken collar bone.
The source said Sibiya underwent surgery on Thursday to correct the broken collar bone but is believed to be recovering well.
Newspaper reports that the two were shot at before the accident have been refuted as absolutely untrue.
