PG decides on mayor

12 June 2019 | Justice

The decision of the prosecutor-general's office on whether Tsumeb mayor Mathews Hangula will be prosecuted or not will be revealed today in the Tsumeb Magistrate's Court.

This is after he crashed his vehicle into a government ambulance in September last year.

Hangula, who was granted bail of N$1 500, is set to face charges of reckless or negligent driving, as well as driving without a driver's licence, if the prosecution goes ahead.

The incident happened on 20 September 2018 when Hangula's Toyota Corolla collided head-on with the ambulance at around 08:00 on the corner of Maria Nehoya and Dr Hage Geingob streets.

The ambulance was on its way to Oshakati from Windhoek.

The occupants of the ambulance - a 53-year-old driver and three passengers aged 24, 71 and 74 - sustained injuries, and were transported to the Tsumeb state hospital at the time.

Hangula, who escaped unhurt, could not produce a valid driver's licence.

He was not arrested at the time, as the police were still investigating the incident.
