Burry Stander case continues

Johannesburg -

The trial of taxi driver Njabulo Nyawose, accused of killing Olympic cyclist Burry Stander, will resume in the Port Shepstone Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

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

The culpable homicide charge was provisionally dropped against him in July, pending a decision by the director of public prosecutions.

The charge, which is reckless or negligent driving in the alternative, was reinstated soon afterwards.

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.

Nyawose is out on a warning. - Sapa
