Sixth learner succumbs in hospital following M/Plain crash in May

A sixth learner that was involved in the accident on AZ Berman Drive, in Mitchells Plain, has succumbed to their injuries in hospital, on Friday.

The crash, that initially caused the death of five children, when the vehicle they were being transported in, rolled several times and collided with a minibus taxi and a Golden Arrow Bus, in May.


The case against the 56-year-old driver, Mninikhaya Mvuli, is ongoing. He’s been charged with culpable homicide and reckless driving.

The Western Cape’s Education Department spokesperson, Kerry Mauchline, confirmed that the learner was from Lentegeur High School.

‘’The collision had already claimed the lives of five young learners, and it is an incredible tragedy that a sixth has now been added. We offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends and school at this very difficult time, and our district office is providing support.”
