'The truth will prevail', says family of Reshall Jimmy at Ford Kuga court case

An inquest is underway to determine whether the Ford Motor Company should be held accountable for his death, reports EWN's Kevin Brandt.

Well-known advocate, Gerrie Nel has been representing Jimmy's family in the court process in the Western Cape High Court.

The Jimmy family says Reshall burnt to death after the vehicle caught alight, while Ford has put forward a different version of events which the family disputes.

Renisha Jimmy, Reshall's sister, says she's confident that High Court Judge Robert Henney will help the family move forward and find the closure that they need.

She has dismissed assertions made by Ford that gunfire was heard on the scene of the incident, calling the claims "absolute nonsense" and "untrue".

I'm confident that the truth will prevail. I'm not bothered at what Ford are saying, because it's not true.

At least 14 witnesses are set to form part of this inquest, Brandt explains.

The matter will resume in March following further investigation.
