Man dies in roadside panga attack
29 May 2010, 10:45
An attack by two men allegedly wielding a panga left one man dead on the M19 near Reservoir Hills this evening, Netcare 911 says.
It is thought that a man had been walking on the M19 with his girlfriend when they were approached by two men.
The two allegedly stripped the woman of her valuables and made off with them, Netcare says.
The woman's boyfriend then apparently pursued them on foot along the roadway. A scuffle ensued and the pursuer was attacked with a panga.
He sustained a deep wound on his left flank and abdomen, prompting severe arterial bleeding. He was found by Netcare911 Paramedics lying face down in a pool of blood.

Savages with pangas!!
They are deemed traditional weapons and cannot be banned.
Hang the bastards!
This is what the European community is afraid of!
