Killer driver granted bail

JOHANNESBURG - A lawyer accused of killing five people when his car crashed into 12 pedestrians in Ledig, North West, will return to court on 6 June, police said on Tuesday.

Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said Mandla Gumbi was granted R10,000 bail when he appeared in the Mogwase Magistrate's Court last Tuesday.

The 34-year-old lawyer was alleged to have been drunk when he ploughed into the group last Monday.

Simon Mmope from the department of human settlements and public safety said the victims, aged between 21 and 30, were certified dead on the scene.

Gumbi was charged with culpable homicide and drunken driving.
