Rogue driver doctor in holding, awaiting court appearance

16 March 2018 | Justice

Dr Yevai Chiradza, the suspended Otjiwarongo doctor who had a pending warrant of arrest issued against him last week Wednesday, in connection with a charge of culpable homicide related to a fatal car accident in 2015, was arrested by the police in Windhoek this morning after he handed himself over just before 08:00.
The police further charged Chiradza with reckless and negligent driving, and inconsiderate driving, following video footage that went viral last week, showing the medical professional driving in an uncontrolled and dangerous manner on the Otjiwarongo – Okahandja road.
At the time of this post, Chiradza is still waiting to appear at the Windhoek Magistrate's Court as there are no available prosecutors. He is still in detention and it is unclear whether he will still appear in court today.
At this stage, it is likely he will remain behind bars until at least Monday morning.
