Rustenburg – The man accused of killing the chief of Bahurutshe Ba Ga Moiloa in Dinokana, North West, in a hit-and-run, appeared in the Lehurutshe Magistrate's Court on Monday.

The case against the 24-year-old man was postponed to January 11 for a formal bail application, spokesperson Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone said.

He faced charges of culpable homicide, failing to stop after an accident, and failing to report it.

Israel Keobusitse Moiloa was killed on New Year's Day after he stopped his car on the Dinokana road to warn children against playing close the road. 

The driver of the car that struck him allegedly fled the scene. Someone wrote down his number plate and police found him.

North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo conveyed his condolences to Moiloa's family and friends, Dinokana residents, and the Provincial House of Traditional Leaders.

"Kgosi Moiloa was a patriotic and responsible citizen who also lived up to the ideals of a selfless traditional leader," Mahumapelo said.
