CAPE TOWN, Western Cape - ANC national executive committee member Tony Yengeni will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court today (June 3 2014) as part of a continuation of his prosecution for alleged drunken driving.

He was arrested on August 11 2013 when City of Cape Town police saw a Maserati being driven erratically near the intersection of Somerset and Dixon roads in Cape Town's CBD.

Yengeni was driving. He was arrested but later released on R500 bail and warned to appear in court on March 4 2014.

OVER THE LEGAL LIMIT

In a statement after his arrest, Cape Town safety and security mayoral committee member, JP Smith, said Yengeni was one of 52 people arrested during a weekend operation. One of his car's registration plates was missing and a "screen device" showed he was over the legal limit of 0.05%.

In March 2014 Yengeni's lawyer said he had received details of the charge from a prosecutor but claimed the details were inadequate. He requested "further and better particulars" from the state.
