Simba Mhere's killer found guilty

Following former Top Billing presenter Simba Mhere's 'killer', Preshalin Naidoo being sentenced to 10-years in jail for two counts of culpable homicide, the court has denied him leave to appeal against the court's decision.

According to News24, Naidoo's leave to appeal has been denied and his bail application has also been refused as his application fell short of certain requirements.

"The State submits that the court removes or dismiss the leave to appeal application because it doesn't meet the certain requirements," said Prosecutor Dinesh Nandkissor. 

The court argued that Naidoo could've been charged differently, had it not been for recklessness on the day of the accident.

"If the accused was not driving at an excessive speed on the day he would have not caused so much damage and the deaths of two people. There was sufficient evidence to sustain the conviction of the accused," added Dinesh Nandkissor.
