Bryce Moon was driving, court hears

2012-03-29 14:34
Johannesburg - Soccer player Bryce Moon was the driver and owner of the Mercedes-Benz which hit and killed a domestic worker, the Randburg Magistrate's Court heard on Thursday.

This emerged from vehicle information on the e-Natis system and statements obtained from passengers of the vehicle, investigating officer Captain Tshilisi Kalushi testified.

Cross-examining him, Naren Sangham, for Moon, said information obtained from the e-Natis system proved only in whose name the vehicle was registered, and not the owner and driver.

Sangham said the first statements obtained from the passengers were taken a month after the charges against Moon were withdrawn on April 15, 2010.

Moon was charged again after new information became available, prosecutor Rodger Mareume said.

Sangham asked: "How is it possible that you charged the accused in the first place if you had no proof that he was indeed the driver?"

Kalushi said the charges were based on statements obtained by metro police officers who were on the scene, and vehicle information obtained from the e-Natis system.

Moon is on trial on charges of murder and drunken driving after allegedly hitting Mavis Ncube with his Mercedes-Benz in Sandhurst, Johannesburg, on June 30, 2009. She later died in hospital from head injuries.

The trial continues.
