The rider who contested the Tour of Spain this year was arrested in Table Mountain National Park because he did not have a valid license to cycle through the park. According to Kevin McCallum, a local sports journalist, Dlamini was dragged off his bike at 60 km / h, after which he was cracked down and his arm was broken.
According to SANParks, the managing body of the national parks in South Africa, the latter was “because the rider resisted” during his arrest. The organization stated that Dlamini caused his own injury.
