Jazz singer Judith Sephuma ran over a 79-year-old woman in Soweto in 2013. According to the SNL24 website, the woman was crossing the road on her way to the clinic when the accident happened. SNL24 further reported that after the accident, Judith Sephuma took the woman to the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital herself where the woman died two hours later. The case originally one of reckless or negligent driving was turned into a culpable homicide case after the woman died. There was no further update on the case, so I’m assuming she got a suspended sentence or paid a fine.
