Fourteen school children were injured when their taxi overturned in Ntuzuma outside Durban on Monday morning.

KwaZulu-Natal NEMS spokesman Robert McKenzie said that one child was in a serious condition and 13 others sustained minor injuries in the accident which occurred on Ithendele Road.

Last week‚ Mondli Zisongo‚ 29‚ appeared briefly in the Ntuzuma Magistrates Court on Wednesday on culpable homicide charges.

He was behind the wheel of a taxi transporting children to school on the opening day of term on January 11.

Four children died at the scene and a fifth‚ a teenage boy‚ succumbed to his injuries in hospital several days later.
