Johannesburg - Former Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) general-secretary Zwelinzima Vavi is expected to appear in the Edenvale Magistrate’s Court again on Wednesday for alleged speeding last month. 

Vavi was among six people arrested on October 4 for speeding in the Ekurhuleni metro. Media reports at the time said he was driving at 207km/h.

"Today I appeared in court, accused of driving 182km/per hour in a 120km zone. The 207km/h is a creation of my media friends," he wrote.
