Stander Accused in Court

Burry Stander mountain biker killed in trainingA 24-year-old minibus taxi driver, Njabulo Nyawose, has appeared in court in South Africa following the death of mountain bike star Burry Stander in a road accident last Thursday. According to the South African Press Association (Sapa), the driver faces a charge of culpable homicide or an alternative charge of reckless and negligent driving; after a short hearing he has been ordered to reappear in court on March 22. There have been a number of memorial rides held across South Africa, from Durban and Cape Town to Johannesburg, to pay tribute to Stander – a two-time Olympian and a former Under-19 and Under-23 World Champion – in addition to calls for improved road safety in a country that has reportedly seen more than 1,300 road deaths in the Christmas period alone.
