Attacked motorist lands in jail


He was allegedly defending himself against three robbers, but Sibusiso
Dlamini spent the night behind bars and has been charged with murder.

The wheelchair-bound man, whose dad is a police-man, was attacked
yesterday while driving through Zola 2, in Soweto.

One of the attackers allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at
Dlamini (31) while the others searched him, looking for a licensed
firearm they be­lieved he was carrying.

But Dlamini refused to give up the gun tucked away inside a leg
holster and a struggle broke out.

Retrieving his weapon, Dlamini allegedly shot and killed an armed
attacker and his two accomplices then overpowered Dlamini and ran off
with both guns.

Police spokesperson Captain Philemon Khorombi said Dlamini was
arrested and charged because "some­one is dead"...

"The courts must decide whether it was self-defence," he said.
