I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment, even if it is R150 or R200.
Why didn't you report the accident immediately? Not doing so, kind of makes you look guilty of something, even though it was an accident.
They can't just force you to sign a final written warning notice, they are supposed to have a hearing and you are supposed to be able to defend yourself. Only if you are found "guilty" can they give you a warning.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required deposit, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make deposits for their questions - they get serviced first!
