Driver faces charges for 55 kids in taxi
Johannesburg - A taxi driver accused of loading 55 schoolchildren into his 15-seater minibus will appear in the Ga-Rankuwa Magistrate's Court, the North West human settlements department said on Monday.
The driver, William Maluleka, 53, who was arrested on September 13, would appear in court on Tuesday, said department spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele.
Maluleka was released on his own recognisances in a previous court hearing.
Kgwele said traffic officers pulled him over on the road between Madidi and Klipgat outside Brits. They fined him R2 500 and took him to the local police station.
"The fine was issued for operating a scholar business without a permit," he said.
