The Queen actress Khanya Mkhangisa has set the record straight about the recent incident that got her spending the night behind bars following an alleged hit and run incident.
This comes after Sunday World reported that Khanya Mkhangisa was arrested following a “high-speed car chase,” after she failed to stop after bumping into another car in Johannesburg last week.
Speaking to Mo Flava and Pearl Shongwe on Metro FM’s “The Drive” on Thursday, the 30-year-old actress confirmed the arrest but denied being involved in a hit and run.
“I was definitely not involved in a hit and run. I don’t know how this story was blown way out of proportion. I was in my complex…parking in my parking bay, I hit the car that parks next to me, left my details, so it wasn’t really a dramatic situation …It was a little scratch” – she said.
“It became a whole thing, unnecessarily. I can’t really go into detail because of the arrest and all the other things they were saying about it. But, basically, there is no case. Naturally. How is there going to be a case? Have you never hit someone’s car by mistake?”

However, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has confirmed to TshisaLIVE that the star was charged with reckless and negligent driving, and that the matter was heard in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on January 18.
NPA spokesperson Phindi Louw said the docket had been handed to them by police for possible prosecution and that the prosecutor had “given instructions for further investigations”.
