Moon charged with murder

2011-01-25 07:44

Johannesburg - A car accident in 2009 has come back to haunt former Bafana and Golden Arrows defender Bryce Moon after the state decided to reinstate charges against him, according to The Times report. 

Moon, is expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday on a charge of murder, an alternative charge of culpable homicide, and charges of reckless and negligent driving and drunk driving.

The charges arise from a car crash in the early hours of June 30 2009 in Sandton, Johannesburg, when the soccer star failed to negotiate a curve in Sandhurst and careened into 25-year-old Sandton domestic worker Mavis Ncube, who died in hospital.

The accident took place at about 06:00 and Moon was reported to have been driving back from a Bafana party to mark the end of Confederations Cup.

The state alleges that Moon was drunk at the time, but the soccer star earlier denied that he was under the influence of alcohol, saying he drank only two beers at the party.

Charges against him were dropped at the Randburg Magistrate's Court in April last year.

The state at the time said investigations were incomplete and that Moon's blood alcohol test results, taken at the time of the crash, were outstanding.

    We don't care about their private lives...we wanna see football!

      LD - 2011-01-25 08:17

      Maybe if Mavis Ncube was your mother,sister or wife you would not see this as private at all. And let me remind you that this happened on a public road and there was no football to see, that is what makes it public.

      Bobinator - 2011-01-25 09:35

      ???!! Caleb, are you kidding?? A lady died. She probably has a family, and i'm pretty sure they don't just "want to see football".

      mrsirguy - 2011-01-25 09:52

      Why don't you grow some or buy some you douchebag! How about we substitute "Mavis Ncube's" (RIP) name in this article with that of one of your family members. You think you'd still wanna see football? You one sick puppy you need a prayer.

      I lost a sister due to similar circumstances, some guy was speeding in an urban area and lost control of the vehicle, hitting my sister in the process( who was not even on the road). To make matters worse, state never followed up on the case. I feel their pain, all because of one selfish moment of stupidness. - 2011-01-25 13:13

      Caleb you're a fcuking idiot mate.

      Weezychest - 2011-01-26 06:53

  • Lunga - 2011-01-25 08:06

    06:00? Two beers? Riiiiight.

      IandI - 2011-01-25 09:21

      Ja. For breakfast.

      nduk'zempi - 2011-01-25 09:21

      basically the guy is telling us that for the whole night till 6AM he had only two beers what was he doing the whole time,smoking pot,perhaps?

      corro51 - 2011-01-25 09:45

      Maybe two yards of ale ! "Failed to negotiate a curve", ja boet.

      R. GOVENDER - 2011-01-25 12:28

      2 cases of beers, maybe.

  • Mokete - 2011-01-25 08:25

    The law is ought to be done.

  • green_goblin - 2011-01-25 08:32

    I honestly cannot see how the state will bring the charges against him as it is now after a year and a half and the key thing would be to prove that he was drunk at the time which caused the accident. his Lawyers will obviously question the quality and the state of the blood sample taken after such a period of time and question the results. If that gets kicked out of court the state has nothing.

      CMTHA - 2011-01-25 09:02

      Do you know what you are saying here? please think again. your knowledge in law is very limited.

      Alan - 2011-01-25 10:22

      Limited, not limited, nil, nada......... Sounds like the goblin thinks that the blood has been kept till now and only analyzed last night lol. Clearly, the results are back and the legal limit exceeded, thus the charges have been re-instated. Guy we know had pretty much the same thing, not an accident of any kind, but arrested for alleged drunken driving - case was thrown out but with the condition that it could be 'revived' at a later stage. 16 months later, he was given another date for court, and 3 court cases later, found guilty.

      green_goblin - 2011-01-25 10:35

      ALan you laugh but I actually deal with some of the state facilities that do blood analysis and I have seen the fact that there are blood samples kept for over two years without being analysed yet!! watch this space there is no way he will be done for murder

      Gaanake - 2011-01-25 11:21

      Why don't the police monitor his movements and pounce on him just after he has had a few too many, tackle him to the ground, suck a few millilitres of alcohol-soaked blood out of him, then take that sample to court as proof of his drunken driving. That would surely stick, eh Green Globin?

      CMTHA - 2011-01-25 15:22

      Goblin i am disappointed on you. you should know better. just use your minde a little bit more. its not expensive just to think

  • Carolyn - 2011-01-25 08:45

    Wether he was drunk or not, he killed her and he should take responsiblity for his deeds, What if it was his mother?? Lock the bastard up for life and throw away the key. Football does not make you immune to feelings and speed makes you a killer. Wake up you mogoos.

      birdman - 2011-01-25 08:56

      He's got to live with this fact for the rest of his life. It must also impact on his effectiveness as a player, so he has basically ruined his own life. People who drink and drive never learn. It's a sickness in SA because the authorities don't have the manpower to police it effectively. They might catch 100 dui's, but 10 000 in the same time will have "got away with it". It's a mindset that we just don't have here in SA. Anywhere else in the world, drinking and driving is anti-social which causes revellers to act responsibly. They just don't do it!

      Stryder - 2011-01-25 09:08

      Assuming he was sober...I pray that you never have an accident in which someone is killed.

      nduk'zempi - 2011-01-25 09:25

      Back in the States,if u r caught drunk while behind the wheel u get 'cuffed and bundled on to a police car and ur car towed to a police pounding yard,and u go to jail straight away,no nonsense.And there are no exceptions just b'coz u r Bryce Moon or Mel Gibson...

      Alan - 2011-01-25 10:27

      Huh birdman? Huh again birdman? We don't know the details of the ordinary folk, but look at - as examples - Chad Kroeger, Britney Spears, GEORGE BUSH (way back in '76 but it happened), Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Nick Nolte, Mel Gibson.......... the list is endless, and that's just the USA, so of course it happens elsewhere, but it doesn't make it right.

  • ztoefy - 2011-01-25 08:49

    I'm glad they taking drinking and driving seriously nowadays....Maybe ppl will be less likely to do it when they know what could happen.

  • maloya - 2011-01-25 09:03

    Well he is an idiot and for taking a life he shud get locked up...But if I may play devils advocate, why oh why was Kallis' alcohol levels not checked after he drove into someone wall in the wee hours of the morning? As for Mr Moon, he has no chance they will lock him up or he might even get off with a suspended sentence (I feel for the woman he killed)

  • Wes - 2011-01-25 09:17

    How do you fail to negotiate a curve... was it speed...under the influence...cant drive...snogging his girlfriend etc who knows

  • ray.romans - 2011-01-25 09:41

    Jeez, look at the fool moon.

  • Kyle - 2011-01-25 10:13

    all these local "celebs" think they a law on to there own - bring back the death penalty on these murderers and rapists, what right do they have to take another persons life....i dont care if you jub jub, bryce moon, or a little old lady..catch a wake up!!!

      Alan - 2011-01-25 10:28


  • seeps.mazi - 2011-01-25 10:54

    errbody got something to say however it needs to be proven that he was indeed drunk and being reckless, however somebody has died in this unfortunate incident so a moment for that poor family......

  • roboman1 - 2011-01-25 12:00

    only 2 beers, but 12 whiskys, 4 tequilas, 2 jaegermesiters and what ever else could be sniffed or smoked??? I dont know, just asking. And when a life is lost one should be held accountable

  • sunshinezn - 2011-01-25 13:11

    Nobody knows exactly what happened on that fatal morning. What happened to a person being innocent until proven guilty?? Unless you were on the road when the accident happened, were at the party with Bryce to see how much he was drinking or by some awesome power have been given the right to judge, let us wait and see what the outcome will be. Its amazing how one day you can hold a person up high South Africa and the next slap him down to something smaller than a germ on an ants backside!!!!!

  • CITIZEN - 2011-01-25 18:33

    Some stars dont learn if what is said in this report is true bryce you in trouble why , why , why cant people not understand even 2 beers are too much while driving for the last time DONT DRINK AND DRIVE STAY SOBER i hope this is not true otherwise remember this " PAPPA WAG VIR HOU I GOT ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD FOR YOU THESE HANDS WILL NEVER LEAVE THEY FISICAL DEMANDING"

      burtfred - 2011-01-26 08:01

      Citizen, you are improving - now only half of your post is shouting. We'll still have to work on the other half. That's in the next module of internet etiquette.

  • burtfred - 2011-01-26 07:57
