THE trial of the man accused of the death of Top Billing presenter Simba Mhere is expected to resume on Monday in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court, north of Johannesburg.

The case of Preshalin Naidoo has been postponed numerous times for various reasons.

Mhere and his friend Kady-Shay O’Bryan‚ who was a passenger in the car Mhere was driving‚ died at the scene of the crash on William Nicol Drive in Fourways‚ north of Johannesburg in January 2015.

After several delays in the long running trial, Naidoo is expected back in the dock on Monday morning.

Naidoo faces two charges of culpable homicide. During previous appearances the court heard that the cause of the accident was not speed, but a mechanical failure.

However, earlier in the trial, Car Track Fleet Manager Lorenz Stoger testified that Naidoo was travelling at around 166km/h when he off-ramped at William Nicol Drive and crashed into Mhere’s vehicle. –
