Western Cape Man Supposedly Thinks Cops Destroyed His Case After He Was Allegedly Assaulted By Four Police Officials. Mzuvukile Lunda had a trip that ended in a bad manner when she travelled from her home in Willowvale in the Eastern Cape and to Cape Town.
Mzuvukile Lunda had a trip that ended in a bad manner when she travelled from her home in Willowvale in the Eastern Cape and to Cape Town. This was due to an alleged assault that he endured from a police official in Khayelitsha. The man says the police officials had mistaken him for a taxi driver, they also thought that he stole a vehicle.
It was on the 16th of March when he, Mzuvukile Lunda, had just gotten back to his place in Khayelitsha. He stated that he had just dropped off a trailer that was hired at a trailer company in his area when four officers lit a torch in his eyes. The police allegedly assaulted him and demanded that he owns up to stealing a vehicle that was vandalised and left. However, when he went to report the matter at a local police station against the officials, the fellow workers attempted to cover for the four officials by cancelling out the threats that were made by the officials from his statement.
Mzuvukile Lunda told ‘TimesLive’, “They plainly refused to record threats that the police made during my assault…where they threatened that they have much stronger hitmen on their side than the ones used by the taxi industry. They clearly thought that I was a taxi owner or driver.” The man’s family is scared because of the threats made against him. The police allegedly let his case down by not agreeing to give him J88 forms, the lawful documents that are completed by a medical professional to lay out the injuries of the victims in a criminal issue. The police still didn’t want to give him the lawful documents two weeks after the assault.
