The allegedly drunk driver, Sibusiso Langa, who mowed down 6 runners training for the Soweto Marathon last Saturday morning was on Friday 22 October 2011, granted R80,000 bail in the Pretoria Magistrates Court. His driving licence has also been suspended as part of his bail conditions.

Following this, the RTMC's Ashref Ismail lauded this action, saying: "We welcome both the R80 000 bail and the suspension of his driver's license.. we want this condition to be upheld for all cases of drunken driving." So too does Justice Project South Africa as a much more clear message must be sent to people who think it is clever to drink and then drive.
