He manoeuvres his way around the crown and gets back to spinning like nothing happened.
Although it was alleged that several people were injured, Thwala has dismissed the allegations but confirmed it was him spinning the vehicle, reported TimesLIVE.
“Not a single person was injured. There is nothing much that happened there. It was just a sport and it was legal. Everything was smooth there, just that there are people who are playing politics now,” the report quoted Thwala as saying.
He said that police and paramedics were at the event and no one was hit by the car, the report said.
He said he couldn’t be held to ransom for his private life and added that spinning cars was his favourite sport and mishap would not put him off.
