A RELATIVE of a hit-and-run victim killed while walking along the Seaview Road last year said he would have forgiven the driver had he bothered to apologise to the family.
But the family of Mpumelelo Apleni, 19, said the accused had shown no remorse since the incident on May 11 last year.
Ruben Botha, 27, a handyman from Lakeside Farm, stands accused of running over Apleni while driving an Opel Astra.
It is alleged he fled the scene of the accident.
Another pedestrian, Vuyisile Valu-Valu, who was walking in front of Apleni at the time, sustained minor injuries when he was struck by the same car.
