Newsflash News Agency reports that ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu has been fined 12-thousand rands for drunk driving after a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Half the fine has been suspended for five years. He appeared briefly in Cape Town's Wynberg Magistrate's Court today where he also pleaded guilty to a charge of driving in the dedicated bus and taxi lane on Cape Town's N-Two freeway on the day of his arrest.

For this transgression he was fined 500-rands. His driver's licence will also be endorsed.

Mthembu was represented in court by senior Cape Town advocate Norman Arendse.

Mthembu was pulled over by a member of the city's ghost squad, an unmarked traffic unit, as he was driving in the bus lane just before 8am on March 11.
