Media personality Maps Maponyane arrested


Media personality and businessman Maps Maponyane has landed himself in trouble.

Maps is the son of Legend, Marks Maponyane. He is famous for being a fashion enthusiast and a cover model for local magazines.

He was nabbed by the police for breaking speed limit in Laingsburg, about 265km from Capetown.

The 30-year-old co-owner of Buns Out Burgers was slapped with a notice to appear before the court when the date is finalized.

A police officer who spoke on condition of anonymity said the incident happened during a roadblock operation on the N1-1 and the KM80 Road in May.

"This was one of our many operations during the national lockdown.

"He was charged with exceeding the speed limit of the road traffic sign."

Police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana confirmed the matter, saying Maps was released on a notice to appear in court.

"A 30-year old man was arrested and given a notice to appear in court and released. I'll indicate a court date once I have it."

When contacted for comment by the Sun team Maps denied the allegations and said:

" Not that I know of man."
