Driver back in court for Burry Stander death

Johannesburg - The case of a minibus taxi driver who allegedly knocked down and killed mountain biker Burry Stander will resume in the Port Shepstone Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Njabulo Nyawose allegedly knocked down Stander, 25, while he was cycling in Shelley Beach, on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, on 3 January last year.

Stander was fifth in the men's cross-country race at the 2012 London Olympics. Four years earlier, at the Beijing Games, he finished 15th in the cross-country event.
