NEWSWATCH: The N3 south, near the London Road off-ramp near Sandton, saw some fireworks yesterday, Monday, 18 June 2018, as another Ford Kuga burst into flames.
It is reported that one of the employees at Ford took the car for a test drive when the incident occurred.
Since Reshall Jimmy's death in his Kuga in George in December 2015‚ more than 80 Kugas have spontaneously burst into flame across SA. The car manufacturer has conducted three safety recalls (more than 4,500 Kugas were recalled in total).
Jimmy's family, frustrated by the lack of justice and by suspected stonewalling‚ has turned to private prosecutor Gerrie Nel to take up their case.
