Cape Town - A security guard was found tied up and badly injured in a covered drain in Montague Gardens, Cape Town, the Cape Times reported on Monday.

The man, 30, was found by his colleagues in Montague Drive around 03:00 on Sunday morning.

They became worried when he did not return from his round and searched for him in the area, eventually finding his shoe near a drain. They called his name and heard noises in the drain.

Police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk told the newspaper the man had injuries to his face and head.

"There was also stolen property found on the premises, covered with pallets, as well as a crowbar and a knife covered with blood," he said.

The guard was in a critical but stable condition in hospital. No arrests had been made.

    Maybe if we all carried out a tax boycott against government they would sink,its our own fault making them wealthy with our hard earned money so its our fault nobody elses.

      unlike the e-toll, this sort of 'revolt' will be far more difficult as we will have to convince large companies to not pay over their tax, nor to pay over our PAYE taxes, nor to pay over vat. this will not be as easy. it wil be easier to take the government on in the constitutional court for wasting money

      for instance for not spending fuel levies on roads
