Touching: Check Out Mzansi celebrities who reportedly killed people accidentally

Jub JJub Jub and Manaka Ranaka

We all admire celebrities, and we have a tendency to expect flawless behavior from them, forgetting that they are still human and make mistakes. In this post, we look at Mzansi celebrities who have accidently killed others.

Oscar Pistorius

The Paralympic athlete shot and killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in the early hours of 14 February 2013.

Oscar did not contest the charges, but claimed that he mistook her for an intruder in court. He was charged with murder, but the ruling was that he was guilty of culpable homicide and reckless endangerment rather than murder. He was freed on parole six months later, only for the state to file an appeal with the Supreme Court, and he was sentenced to 6 years in prison for murder, which was eventually increased to 15 years.

On her journey to Durban in December 2015, the actress hit an 18-year-old with her automobile. The adolescent was walking over the N3 highway. Manaka apologized to the deceased's family for her error, and they accepted that it was an accident and forgave her.

Jub Jub and Themba Tshabalala collided with a group of students in Soweto on March 8, 2010. When their mini cooper collided with those kids, they were under the influence of drugs. Two of the children were critically hurt, and four of the children died. They were given a 20-year term for murder and a four-year sentence for attempted homicide. The State filed an appeal, claiming that they were not in the correct frame of mind at the time. After serving only 4 years of their sentences, they were both freed on parole.

He was found guilty of culpable homicide. He returned to South Africa after receiving guarantees that he would not be executed. He was acquitted of all charges subsequently.
