The Free State minister caught driving at 235km/h was found guilty of reckless and negligent driving in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Monday, police said.
“He was found guilty and he admitted guilt,” Captain Harry Nagel said.
Nagel said the provincial minister for sport, arts, culture and recreation in the Free State, Dan Kgothule, would be sentenced on Wednesday.
Kgothule was charged with reckless and negligent driving after he was caught speeding in his BMW 745 on the N1 freeway in Glen, outside Bloemfontein, on Thursday.
He was arrested and released on R2 000 bail.
Kgothule’s speeding broke records not only during the festive period, but also for the fastest speed in the Glen area, where there were often speed traps on the N1. — Sapa
