Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr would like to settle a case of reckless or negligent driving against him out of court, SABC news reported.

Johannesburg - There has been a misunderstanding about the court appearance date of Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr, who was arrested for speeding last week, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said on Monday.

Hofmeyr would appear in the Bronkhorstspruit Magistrate's Court on December 30, and not on Monday, said NPA spokesman Medupe Simasiku.

“There was a misunderstanding at the police station about the date,” he said.

Hofmeyr was arrested in Bronkhorstspruit on Thursday night for speeding and was released on bail of R500.

“He will appear... on charges of reckless and negligent driving and for exceeding the general speed limit for driving 169km/h in a 80km/h zone,” Gauteng traffic police spokeswoman Busaphi Nxumalo said at the time. - Sapa
