Jamie-Lee Hendricks started this petition to Mayor of Cape Town and

On the 12th October 2019, Alexander van Wyk (25) was involved in a hit and run and killed by a drunken driver (Andrew Choruma). A young man who was a father to a 7 month old, husband, son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and a friend to many. His life only lasted 25 years but he’s smile , heart and humbleness has touched many people. He was always there to give a gentle smile or a helpful hand. 

But on the fatal Saturday night his life was taken by a DRUNK driver and all he did was work. Alexander along with 2 of his colleagues were involved in the hit and run while getting ready on the pavement to sweep the streets of Voortrekker rd. His two colleagues survived the accident but Alexander unfortunately will never be going home again after work. 

The drunken driver was caught a few meters down the road by a security company and that Monday was released on bail. Even though he was drunk without a license and this was his second offence. His bail was based on lack of evidence and yet there were many eye witnesses.

The court has allowed a two time drunken driving offender to be set free. He was previously arrested for drunken driving on the 23 February. 8 months later he committed another offense. Alexander van Wyk was killed due to this drunken driver's negligent and reckless decision to get behind the wheel of that car. By this drunk driver getting bail who will he hurt next? Will this festive season be his third offence?

With this petition we demand that Andrew Choruma's bail be revoked and urgent and immediate attention be given to this case.
