Mangaung hit and run suspect remanded in custody


Novelake Lisbet Smith (32) appeared before the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Monday, 4 November 2019, on charges of culpable homicide and failure to report an accident within 24 hours.

Smith handed herself over at Mangaung police station on Monday morning (4 November 2019) after evading arrest for about a week.

This follows an incident that happened in the early hours of Sunday, 27 October 2019, where a local businessman, Ndleleni Donvulo, was fatally hit by a speeding vehicle outside a pub in Pitso Street, Bochabela, Mangaung.

The case has been postponed to 11 November 2019 for a formal bail application, and she has been remanded in custody while the police investigation continues.
