Durban – A woman who allegedly killed two people in a hit-and-run at Durban’s Blue Lagoon was granted R20 000 bail by the Durban Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Kearadilwe Refilwe Modise Moloto, 28, from Gauteng, had her case postponed to August 8.

Sumeer Maharaj, 26, and Pravin Mahabir, 25, were killed while helping their friend Junaid Singh change a flat tyre on his bakkie on May 18.

Their cars were parked in the emergency lane on the M4 north, near the Blue Lagoon on-ramp, when Moloto allegedly struck them with her black Kia. Singh was the only one of the three to survive the incident. He was also struck, injuring his hand.

Maharaj died at the scene and Mahabir died the next day in hospital. Moloto allegedly did not stop at the scene.

Moloto is facing two counts of culpable homicide, charges of reckless or negligent driving, leaving the scene of an accident, and defeating the ends of justice.
