Moatlhodi was brought to court to answer to a charge of causing death by dangerous driving and failure to stop after the accident. Boitshoko Moatlhodi, 32, who is a civil engineer by profession, was also charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, but the charge has since been withdrawn.

During the previous mention, Moatlhodi’s attorney John Mosojane applied for a ‘no case to answer’ in respect of the two counts.
