The Gauteng speedster who has been arrested for driving over 300 kilometres per hour on the N1 between Johannesburg and Pretoria has been released on bail of R1000 by the Midrand Magistrate’s Court.

Phumlile Ncube was arrested after a video of him speeding, on the N1 close to Midrand, went viral on social media.

The case has been postponed to the 13th of March.

He is facing charges in connection with alleged misconduct relating to reckless and negligent driving as well as endangering the lives of other motorists.

In the video, the speedometer of the car he was driving showed his speed at over 300 kilometres per hour.

He was arrested over the weekend at a funeral in Polokwane.
