ONE of South Africa’s biggest music stars was allegedly caught speeding last night near Ballito.

Donald Moatshe (28), who goes by the stage name of Donald, was caught speeding at 182 km/h in an Umhlanga Rocks-registered Audi Q3 on the N2 heading northbound.

His arrest was confirmed by sources at the Umhlali SAPS.

When contacted by The Witness, Moatshe would not comment and asked his manager Tshediso Leanya to answer questions.

“Donald wasn’t arrested and he will not be appearing in court tomorrow. I don’t know anything about the speeding. Please send an e-mail,” he said before hanging up.

Road Traffic Inspectorate spokesperson Zinhle Mngomezulu confirmed that a 28-year-old male had been arrested speeding in an Audi doing 182 km/h.

“He was arrested and then released on R2 500 bail and will appear in court today,” she said.

He is expected to appear in the KwaDukuza Magistrate’s Court.

Described as a “vocal house muso”, Moatshe’s first album was called Just Donald and he was also a backing singer for Malaika. According to sister publication Sunday World, he has the most Metro FM Award nominations (six) and owns the record company DeexclusiveSounds.

He has gained huge popularity from his recent single Over The Moon, which featured in his second album Train Of Love.
