Bikers converge at Hummer case
Pretoria - Scores of bikers converged on the
Pretoria North Regional Court on Wednesday for the brief appearance of a man
who allegedly ran over and killed two motorcyclists with a stolen Hummer.
It had been expected that a trial date would
be set for Indu Chyabu, who faces two charges of culpable homicide. However,
the case was postponed until February 21 to allow the 31-year-old to instruct
his legal team.
Bikers Johannes Kruger and Pieter Coetzee
were killed when a Hummer Chiyabu was allegedly driving ploughed into them on
Rachel de Beer Road in Pretoria on October 16, 2010.
Two motorcycles and the Hummer caught fire.
Coetzee and Kruger died at the scene. Chiyabu allegedly fled.
Coetzee's son, also called Pieter, lost his
leg in the accident. He was in court on Tuesday in a wheelchair to watch the
Chyabu, who is out on a warning, was escorted
from the court through a back entrance by court officials.
