According to the Daily Voice, the Bafana Bafana defender, who joined Sundowns from Ajax Cape Town on deadline day, was driving at 198km/h on the N1 highway in Cape Town at 9.55pm.
He was apparently rushing to Goodwood Police Station to certify documents needed for his move to Sundowns when he was flagged down by a traffic cop in the vicinity of Goodwood.
