The Randburg Magistrate’s Court is on Thursday, expected to sentence Preshalin Naidoo – convicted of culpable homicide following the death of Top Billing presenter in a car crash.
Naidoo, 27, was found guilty of culpable homicide in January by the Randburg magistrate’s court for causing the fatal 2015 car accident that claimed the lives of Mhere and his friend Kady-Shay O’Bryan.
During the trial, Naidoo said in an affidavit that the accident was caused by a mechanical malfunction of his vehicle and not due to negligent driving.
The crash involved three cars and happened on William Nicol Drive in Fourways, Johannesburg, on January 31, 2015.
On March 9, the pre-sentencing proceedings were postponed after the court heard that the probation officer’s report was not complete.
