Tony Yengeni found guilty of drunk driving
CAPE TOWN – African National Congress (ANC) NEC member Tony Yengeni has been found guilty of drunk driving.
He has been acquitted on a charge of reckless driving in the Cape Town Regional Court on Friday.
The former ANC Member of Parliament has been on trial for a 2013 incident in which he was arrested in Green Point while three times over the legal limit.
Throughout the trial Tony Yengeni's legal team attacked the process used in testing his blood alcohol levels on the night of the incident.
They claimed the procedure was tampered with and the initial blood tests were not conducted by a registered nurse.
The former ANC MP maintained his innocence throughout and claimed he only had three sips of Umqombothi on the night.
But Magistrate Grant Engel rejected those assertions and found Yengeni guilty of driving under the influence.
It's not clear yet what sentence will be imposed on the politician.
