The Fees Must Fall protests had dire consequences for café employee Eddie at the University of Cape .
WHILE kwaito star Mandoza claims to have paid the families of two men who died in a car accident he caused police were yesterday still hunting down the musician.
A warrant of arrest was issued for Mandoza, real name Mduduzi Tshabalala, after he "failed" to comply with his culpable homicide sentence.
Last year Mandoza pleaded guilty to two counts of culpable homicide after his car smashed into the rear of a VW Jetta, leaving Charles Shabalala and Felix Thebe dead.
The Roodepoort magistrate's court sentenced him to four years, suspended for five years, on condition that he paid R10000 towards the funeral costs of each bereaved family by January 7 2009.
He also had to make monthly payments of R1500 to the Thebe family and R3000 to the Shabalala family for 24 months.
Police spokesperson Captain Lydia Mtila-Dikolomela said yesterday that Mandoza's lawyer claimed that payment had been made.
"His lawyer informed us that payment has been made and that proof of payment was being sent to the Roodepoort magistrate's court," she said.
"The lawyer said he would meet prosecutors tomorrow (today) to discuss the matter. As far as we are concerned the warrant of arrest stands because it has yet to be cancelled by a magistrate."
When Sowetan called the Nkalakatha star, he said he was driving and promised to speak to us 30 minutes later. But he failed to answer his cellphone when contacted 30 minutes later.
His lawyer did not answer his cellphone either.
