Kaizer Chiefs left-back Simphiwe Mtsweni has been released on bail after he was caught speeding over the weekend.
According to the Daily Sun, the 20-year-old was allegedly driving recklessly along the freeway on Sunday at almost 200km/h when the cops bust him with a speed trap and Mtsweni allegedly didn’t stop, forcing the cops to give chase at the Edenvale exit on the R21 freeway.

The Stars of Africa graduate appeared at the Palm Ridge Court yesterday on charges of reckless driving. He wasn’t asked to plead and was released on bail. He will reappear on Thursday.

Mtsweni is not the first Chiefs player to be caught speeding on the road.
Last year, Itumeleng Khune was arrested for driving 173km/h in a 120km/h zone in Centurion and he was ordered to perform 10 hours of community service by the Lyttleton Magistrates Court after his charges were withdrawn.
Khune also publicly apologised.
