Van Blerk’s lawyer, Zed Chidyausiku told the court that his client had been involved in a horse-riding accident.
It could however not be ascertained as to what injuries he sustained and the time frame for recovery.
As has become the norm with the businessman, perhaps for the purposes of dragging his trials, Van Blerk failed to attend court after presenting to court that he was suffering from catatonic seizures but the State led by Prosecutor Zivanai Macharaga requested that he be assessed by State certified doctors.

Dr Rachel Muzvidziwa was the medical doctor doing Van Blerk’s medical examinations.
