Verdict – Peter Ndlovu not guilty

Verdict – Peter Ndlovu not guilty

Posted: 12 April 2013 Time: 4:48 pm

The Victoria Falls Magistrate’s Court on Friday dismissed the charges of culpable homicide that were being levelled against former Zimbabwe national team captain Peter Ndlovu.

In a trial that began on Wednesday, Ndlovu was being charged over a December 16 car crash near the Victoria Falls Airport that killed his brother Adam and a passenger, Nomqhele Tshili.

Magistrate Archibald Dingana ruled that prosecutors – who argued that Ndlovu (39) was driving above 120km/per hour when the accident occurred – failed to convincingly prove their case.

Ndlovu, who maintained his innocence throughout the trial, said through his lawyer Harrison Nkomo that he was driving at between 90 and 100km/h when one of the vehicle's tyres burst, causing him to lose control.

The former Coventry City, Sheffield United and Mamelodi Sundowns winger – who broke down on Wednesday while explaining his innocence – insisted the accident was caused by a burst tyre.
