KwaZulu-Natal police say they expect to make an arrest by the end of tomorrow in connection with the death of a 20-year-old surfer at Durban North at the weekend.

Police spokesperson Thulani Zwane says the suspect, who is alleged to have been behind the wheel of a car that slammed into Michael Livesey, is due to be charged with culpable homicide.

Livesey was hit as he skateboarded on Chelsea Road, making his way home from a friend’s house on Saturday night.

He died on scene.

Family spokesperson, Dean Macpherson, says a wake for Michael will be held on Friday at Northwood Boys High and a group of surfers will paddle out from uShaka Beach on Saturday to honour him.

Macpherson says it has been a difficult time for the family.
