Correctional Services spokesman Manelisi Wolela has denied allegations that student leader Mcebo Dla.
Durban businessman Prince Sifiso Zulu's trial will start on February 2 next year, the Durban regional court heard yesterday.
On March 29, Zulu's BMW X5 was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident with a Mitsubishi double-cab. Two members of the Soul's Harbour Ministries Church were killed and 10 other people were injured in the crash.
Zulu was allegedly drunk at the time of the accident and initially denied being the driver of the vehicle. He was arrested in June on two charges of culpable homicide. He was granted bail of R5000.
During their probe police also discovered an outstanding warrant of arrest for Zulu for another drunk driving case in 2006. The trial for the drunk driving case and the culpable homicide case were both initially set for Wednesday.
Zulu appeared in court after weeks of recovering from injuries sustained when he attempted to commit suicide. He was admitted to hospital on July 8 after he reportedly jumped off the second floor of his plush penthouse on Durban's Point Waterfront.
Minutes earlier he had allegedly stabbed himself in the neck. After his hospitalisation, the charge was "provisionally withdrawn". - Sapa
