Port Shepstone - A minibus driver accused of killing mountain biker Burry Stander in an accident appeared at the Port Shepstone Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.
“The matter was postponed to 21 and 22 of October for trial,” KwaZulu-Natal NPA spokeswoman Natasha Ramkisson said.
Njabulo Nyawose, facing a charge of culpable homicide, was released on a warning.
Stander, 25, was cycling in Shelley Beach on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast when he was struck by a minibus taxi Nyawose was allegedly driving on January 3.
Charges against him were reinstated last month after they were provisionally withdrawn. This was done for the directorate of public prosecutions to decide whether to prosecute.
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.
