Honda fit driver who killed a pedestrian's bail hearing is set for today while he is still in custody.

Neverson Siyapeya (37)  who was driving a Honda Fit in January hit three pedestrians and killed the fourth one when he lost control of the vehicle while driving in the Bulawayo city centre.

He has not been asked to plead to culpable homicide,  driving without a licence, negligent driving and failing to stop charges after the first accident when he appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Tinashe Tashaya.

The court was told that on January 23, Siyapeya was driving a Honda fit along Bulawayo's Herbert Chitepo Street in Bulawayo.

It is the State case that he hit a stationary motor vehicle which was dropping off passengers at Pick and Pay Supermarket.

After the accident, Siyapeya fled before hitting three pedestrians who were crossing the road.

He again sped off, but lost control of the vehicle while negotiating a corner  and hit Henry Ndlovu who was standing by the road side killing him on the spot.
