Netwerk24 reported that the driver of Chabane's white VW Touareg could have been travelling close to 200km/h; Chabane and his bodyguards were travelling back from a funeral of a tribal chief in Malamulele where Chabane was a speaker.
Chabane and his bodyguards Sergeant Lesiba Sekele and Sergeant Lawrence Lentsoane were killed instantly when a truck allegedly did a u-turn in front of their car on the N1 near Polokwane.
The truck driver is believed to have been under the influence of alcohol. His driver's licence had lapsed.
