Crime Justice



White polo killed my man.

Siphiwe Tshabangu and Madika Motloung are seeking retribution for the death of a family member, Bafana Tshabangu (shown inset), who they believe was caused by a white Polo player.

THE FAMILY OF Bafana Tshabangu, who passed away at the age of 41, is not prepared to acknowledge that the young father and husband's passing was just an accident. They want fair treatment.

In front of his home, Bafana was run over by a vehicle, and he passed away as a result of his injuries.

Bafana's family said in an interview with the Daily Sun that they are unrelenting in their pursuit of justice until the perpetrator of their loved one's murder is brought to justice.

His wife, Madika Motloung, who is 38 years old, said that Bafana was anticipating someone to retrieve certain papers from him at his residence in Daveyton, Ekurhuleni, at around 8 o'clock on the evening of the 15th of May. When he heard the phone ring, he walked out to the front porch while still wearing his slippers and talking on the phone. After that, Madika heard a huge crash, and when she raced outside, she discovered her husband laying on the ground bleeding. She immediately went to her husband's aid.

"I rushed over to him while yelling his name. She said that she was telling him to reply and to remain with her.

While Bafana was holding her husband, the guy who was supposed to meet her came. They tried to get her husband to the Daveyton Clinic, but it was closed because of a power outage. After that, they made a hasty trip to the Far East Hospital.

Madika said that despite the medical staff's best efforts, the patient did not regain consciousness and passed away.

According to his elder brother Siphiwe Tshabangu, who is 47 years old, witnesses told him that a white Polo was attempting to pass an Avanza at the time it struck Bafana.

"Why would somebody do something so stupid and then try to get away with it? Siphiwe said that if it was a mistake, the individual in question would not have drove off.

He said that they won't stop looking for the culprit until they identify them.

He added that by doing so, the man had "robbed Bafana of his future" and "left a woman to raise five children all by herself."

I really hope that someone will come forward with information that will assist put this individual in jail.

According to Siphiwe, the police never visited the location or questioned any witnesses. He said that it seemed as if they had given up on the investigation of the case.

The Daily Sun attempted to get in touch with the police, but as of the time this article was being printed, they had not responded.

He said that Bafana has never refused assistance to anybody who was in need.

"We are really devastated," said Siphiwe.
