Newspapers focus on tragic death of Collins Chabane

Today's newspapers focus on the tragic death of the three men and the circumstances around the accident.

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.
