TRAUMATISED Nkaleka Tshilo recently escaped death when thugs broke into his home.
The 40-year-old from Ikageng near Potchefstroom, North West said: “I was beaten with all sorts of weapons including pangas. They took my phone and damaged my belongings. I am traumatised. I feel unsafe in my house.”
“I suffered a head injury, lost sight and had to undergo a few operations.”
Nkaleka said he identified the thugs but no arrests were made.
“I feel the police failed me. I want justice,” he said.
“I went back to report to the police that I received death threats from the thugs, but still nothing was done,” he said.
Police spokeswoman Aafje Botma confirmed that an assault case was registered. Botma said statements were obtained and the docket went to the state prosecutor last week. “The state prosecutor refuses to prosecute and the docket was closed,” said Botma.
She said the victim will be informed of the outcome.
