CAPE TOWN – ANC national executive committee member Tony Yengeni has been found guilty of drunk driving.

Yengeni, who was arrested on August 11 2013, has been found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol, but not guilty on the charge of reckless driving.

Yengeni had insisted that he had just three sips of African beer on the day of his arrest and was not intoxicated.

This despite his blood alcohol tests showing he was five times over the legal limit.






Yengeni has been sentenced to 90 days in jail or a R30 000 fine, half of which suspended.
