Truck driver pleads guilty to killing 31 people

Regis Mangwari, who is the driver of a South Africa-registered haulage truck, which side-swiped a Johannesburg-bound Proliner bus, killing 31 people on the spot and injuring 40 near Mvuma in April  pleaded guilty when he appeared before Mvuma resident magistrate Mr Tayengwa Chibanda on Friday.

Since his trial started two months ago, Mangwari had been pleading not guilty. Magistrate Chibanda remanded him in custody to Friday this week for sentencing. The four witnesses brought by the State all pointed out that Mangwari was negligent with police accident evaluator Constable Gibson Botsa stating that he was accelerating when the accident happened.
