On Friday, a 31-year-old lady appeared in the Wynberg Magistrates Court in connection with the death of young model Olivia Sieff in a hit-and-run accident (18).
According to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila, Onesimo Makhubalo appeared briefly in court before she was released on R3000 bail.

“The accused had bail set at R3000 with conditions that she must report to Wynberg Saps every Friday between 18:00-21:00. Her case was postponed until 25 May 2022 for further investigation,” Ntabazalila said.

The tragedy occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday, January 30, 2022.
She was charged with culpable homicide and leaving the scene of an accident without determining injuries or property damage, according to police (hit-and-run).
Sieff, who recently matriculated, was leaving the Claremont night-spot of Tin Roof when this tragic accident happened.

Police spokesperson Captain Frederick Van Wyk said Makhubalo was arrested on a culpable homicide charge on Tuesday. According to Van Wyk the woman made a confession.
Police also said the woman’s car was identified through the surveillance footage as the car that was involved in the hit-and-run accident and on Tuesday, the vehicle was traced.
The driver was arrested and detained at Claremont Police Station as a suspect. The arrest was made in a joint co-operation between Claremont detectives and City of Cape Town Law Enforcement members.
The vehicle that was allegedly used in the incident was seized and forensic analysis was done on the vehicle.
