THE hitman entered his victim’s house, a panga ready in his hand, as the people inside lay sleeping.
He saw the man lying on the sofa in the lounge and hacked him over the head with the deadly weapon.
But it was the wrong guy!
Mandla Ngcobo (53) from Mofolo South in Soweto said his friend had visited him and that after having some beers he went to sleep in his bedroom, while his friend lay on the sofa.
“I heard him screaming for help in the middle of the night. Before I knew what was happening, I saw a man standing next to my bed with a panga.”
He said he wrestled with the man and suffered injuries to his legs as he tried to defend himself.
He opened a case at Moroka Police Station but he told Daily Sun that when he went back to the cop shop to get the details of his case, he was told it had been closed by a top official at the station.
