Simba accident details and charges


The driver of a vehicle that crashed into that of television presenter Simbarashe "Simba" Mhere would be charged with culpable homicide, Johannesburg metro police said on Saturday.

The accident happened along William Nicol Drive after 5am, said spokeswoman Superintendent Edna Mamonyane.

“A VW Polo that had got off the N1 in Fourways, crossed over the middle island and crashed into Simba’s side. Simba was driving and the strong impact killed Simba and a passenger sitted upfront,” said Mamonyane.

Mhere and one passenger died on the scene. A third passenger in the car and the Polo driver were taken to hospital.

Mamonyane said: “The Polo driver will be charged with culpable homicide and reckless and negligent driving. Metro police officers said could not see any visible injuries or bleeding on the Polo driver at the hospital.”
