A video of actor Siyabonga Radebe being arrested for allegedly driving drunk emerged on social media on Monday evening.
In the video, which was posted on Twitter, the actor can be seen surrounded by policemen as he is being handcuffed and later taken away. In the background, a man speaking isiZulu can be heard complaining about how the “celebrity knocked a car”.
“Look at how you’ve bumped this car because you’re drunk,” he can be heard saying to the star as the camera shows two cars which have been severely damaged as a result of a collision.
Speaking to DRUM, KZN SAPS spokesperson, Brigadier Jay Naicker, confirmed the arrest of the actor and said that two vehicles were involved in a collision in Ntuzuma, Durban on Saturday.
“It is alleged on 5 October 2019 at 15:30, two vehicles were involved in a collision at G Section in Ntuzuma. A passenger in one of the vehicles was injured during the collision,” he told DRUM before revealing that the matter was still being investigated.
“A case of reckless and negligent driving is being investigated by Ntuzuma SAPS,” he said.
