Shaik: I was beaten up at golf course

2011-05-29 14:55

Johannesburg - Convicted fraudster Schabir Shaik was beaten up before the municipal elections for being a "kaffir-lover" and supporting the ANC, he said on Sunday.

"They kept on punching and kicking me.

"I think they wanted to prove a point to me.

"I became a target in some sense," Shaik told Sapa in a telephone interview.

"There were four drunk guys.

"They were really big [in] size and much, much younger than me."

He said the men spat abusive language at him at the Papwa Sewgolum golf course clubhouse in Reservoir Hills, Durban, a few weeks ago.

This was the same golf course where Shaik allegedly assaulted a journalist four months ago.

"During my free time I spend most of my week at home and the few hours I have, I go to the course because it a sport I enjoy," said Shaik.

"I went there alone. I had just played a round of golf and was taking a breather when I heard them talking badly about the ANC and President [Jacob] Zuma. They called him the k-word.

"I told them this is not the way they should be talking and I won't stand for this kind of talk or behaviour."

Shaik said the men were aggressive and he did not want to retaliate.

Blows

"This is the first time anything like this has happened and they were out of town people.

"I didn't want to retaliate and be aggressive so I just kept quiet...I'd rather die a quiet death than be aggressive.

"It's difficult in my position. If I defend myself I become aggressive."

Since the incident, Shaik has been back to the golf course twice without any incidents.

"You never know when these things can happen...It can happen anywhere...in the shopping centre or any other golf course.

"I have learned to take the blows and just walk away."

Shaik had visited his doctor who told him his injuries were not serious.

"My ribs and abdomen are very sore. I took pain tablets and slept it out. What else could I do?"

He said he was disheartened by the incident but would not open a criminal case.

"I don't want to lay charges and have this blown out of control. It's the first time it's happened and it's a non-racial course.

"As a public figure you tend to attract these kinds of people."

Shaik was quoted as saying in the Sunday Times: "If I laid charges against them it will be another big thing...Correctional services would not hear both sides of the story. They would whisk me straight to jail."

Police spokesperson Phindile Radebe said that she was unaware of the incident.

    He should be in jail, what is he doing playing golf?

      DoublySalmon - 2011-05-29 15:00

      Zuma should join him in jail. They are both corrupt thieves who stole from South Africans.

      Joe_Public - 2011-05-29 15:41

      Why didn't they take somewhere more sinister to beat him up? Like into a pineapple under the sea...

      Gonny@24.com - 2011-05-29 15:52

      Actually shouldnt he be dead by now?

      Elizabeth - 2011-05-29 16:04

      stay away from golf courses please youre are a real tragidy queen.

      Joe_Massahar - 2011-05-29 16:51

      If I spotted him at a golf course I would have to restrain myself not to slap him. Isn't he on medical parol?! What's he doing playing golf!?

      whatashame - 2011-05-29 16:55

      Shaikie you are looking for sympathy here. We all know if we get into problems with a Whitey, all we have to do is say they used the K word. It usually works.

      Simpiwe Cele - 2011-05-29 20:31

      I thought your health was poor shaky shaik ? but you're out playing gold.

      Ozymandios - 2011-05-29 20:37

      He gets beaten up by 4 "BIG" men who were very much younger than him. Now I have had 2 guys beat me up once when I was 19 and thought I was a really toughie and looking for trouble in a bar (The Castle Inn)in Hillbrow ( 1974 when it was a good place for a jol) and I sure as hell was not back the next week at that place looking for trouble again. I was to sore and messed up to go anywhere near there for 3 weeks after that. But this "turkey" goes back to play golf twice after being hammered at this golf club. How "beaten up was he?". Not good enough by the looks of things. You get kicked a few times in the ribs and body and a few "knuckle sandwiches' in the head" and you are not on a golf course the next week practising your swings etc. These 4 definitely in my book should be fined for not doing a good enough job.

      Frungy - 2011-05-30 01:58

      @Gonny - Yeah. And the fact that his injuries are so slight is really suspicious. I suspect his wife just got tired of having him lazing around the house all day and gave him a good smacking, and this is all an excuse. I mean serious people, it's a GOLF COURSE! Plenty of visibility, and if even half a dozen other people were on the course someone would have seen something. I seriously doubt that Shabir was assaulted.

      Little Jim - 2011-05-30 04:47

      If four big guys beat up a frail cancer ridden man on his death bed, then surely they would of killed him? But Shaik is in good health it seems and took the beating well. Apart from that, he is a bully and probably tuned the men at the bar in a degrading way leading to him getting a hiding that all bullies deserve...what goes round comes round

      Travie - 2011-05-30 07:56

      What shocks me is I have never seen white people playing on this course and i a play there all the time and no im not white. Plus I know you are lying taking a breather. This is what really happened, You finished your round of golf were in the pub, got pissed people a group of people asked you how you are able to golf being so sick you then swore and challanged them and one man gave you a proper slap in which you felt so embarrased, you couldnt report it because too many witnesses would tell the truth but you had to tell the media before someone else did because it would look bad on your behalf the truth coming from a different source.... you idiot!

      ian.teall - 2011-05-30 11:42

      THAT F***FACE SHOULD BE DEAD ALREADY, SHOULDN'T HE?????? These guy's were just helping his 'terminal illness', it's a pity they didn't finish the job!Shaik is a despicable smidgen of blowfly s**t on the clean plate of humanity!

      He may be the primary reason behind the new "Info" bill. Get him out of jail to keep his mouth shut, then change the LAW so that if he ever decides to blackmail his cronies, anyone listening will go to prison. Same old shyte, different day!

      Jo - 2011-05-30 14:18

      Actually, DaNegroid, he didn't stand up for the president - he gave him very bad advice and brought him into disrepute. May you be saved from embarrassing friends like Mr Shaik..

      therealdeal - 2011-05-30 15:18

      A terminally ill golf player.

      @Da Negroid - Chippy, is that you!!

      Execuchic - 2011-05-30 16:58

      From what I can see this is a golf course in an Indian area. Do whites play golf at this course? Is someone committing assumicide that this was group of white people using the "K" word? Come on... AT the end of the day it's got nothing to do with colour. It's got to do with a convicted criminal who HAS brought the president's name into disrepute and made a mockery of our justice system and who can believe a word the comes out of his mouth. @ Da Negroid. Such a pity you take such a hostile stance. I work very well together with a number of people from different races and we help each other by sharing skills and developing one another for the good of our country and job creation. Do you really want a total brain drain and a further exacerbated skills shortage in our country?? Let's start seeing each other as individuals rather than stereotyping by ethnic groups. The country progress going forward ill be slowed down when we are doing this.

      Wizard101 - 2011-05-30 19:54

      Zuma,malema,mbekinelson they should all be in the jail but nooooooo,they are running the country

      Wizard101 - 2011-05-30 19:59

      Shaik is a sucker for punishment,and I think he was not really punched up.If it was 4 white guys they must be tought how to f@ck him up.He is still playing golf.

      Francoise Ferreira - 2011-05-30 22:10

      does he exspect south africans to feel sorry for him, chuck his sorry ass back in jail

      Francois - 2011-05-30 22:43

      Come on Schaik, our hearts bleed for you. You like said, you should have been in prison, lekker safe where nobody can beat you and Bubba, your husband, would have looked after you.

      Simpiwe Cele - 2011-05-31 04:47

      Interesting I was talking to a few Muslim mates of mine , and the general feeling towards Shakey Shaik from the Muslim community is one of contempt. They dont see him as a man of any integrity at all.

      Simpiwe Cele: pity blacks dont see that about the ANC

  • clark - 2011-05-29 15:05

    - 'Give all those men a Bells' - Oh poor old Shaik, getting beaten up for defending his partner in crime - my heart bleeds. Strange that he does'nt mention reporting the incident to the cops. This beating is minor compared to what would happen to him if he was in jail, where the idiot should be.

      clark - 2011-05-29 15:37

      - This story is fishy - is'nt there a parole hearing coming up for this thief ? Maybe he will use this ' alledged' incident as a defence against his going back to jail. Either that or he's trying to score some brownie points with the Anc.

      gargmelsmurfeater - 2011-05-29 15:41

      No, no Bells for these boys, they obviously didn't do a good enough job...If they did he would be in hospital like he claims he should be.

      Blougroen - 2011-05-29 16:19

      @clark - yea fishy indeed with a hearing coming up - I wonder what he paid 4 thugs to "carefully" beat up a terminal old man so that he doesnt suffer to much damage - alternatively the board should recognise the fact that he started the fight after rudely interfering with 4 men who where having a private conversation amongst themselves .. . . .

      Lawence - 2011-05-29 18:51

      Sounds like a set up. Too conveinient, and the fact that he's not charging anyone, settles it for me. Pull the other one, Mr. Shaik

      scorpio - 2011-05-29 19:51

      Absolute Bullshit. This guy is the biggest bullshitter on the planet. If this had really happened to him he would have laid a charge. He just wants sympathy. Be careful what you wish for ...........

      Kenko - 2011-05-29 21:16

      Hey everyone playing golf there, next time, pack a baseball bat for those close shots. It works better, and will rid SA of a huge embarrassment. Keep the elbow high, take a step forward and let rip!!

      wmutahi - 2011-05-30 08:00

      @Perfume, his actions do not justify a racial attack. Let him be beaten for his actions for all I care but if it's an attack with racial sentiments, then it's a different matter. It is juvenile to say the least.

      THH - 2011-05-30 12:05

      @wmutahi let me guess you also use the card at any time possible. If you belive that there was any attack let alone a racial one then you my friend are an idiot.

      wmutahi - 2011-05-30 19:19

      @THH - With a one track mind, you might say that. But I would say the same thing if this happened to anybody of any race. It does not matter to whom it is directed to regardless of color or whatever. A racial attack is a racial attack regardless of the victim whether green, blue or orange.

  • youcantrunyoucanthide - 2011-05-29 15:09

    Shame, poor Shaik. His story sounds like a load of hogwash.

      POLLENYS - 2011-05-29 15:29

      I'll only believe him if he shows me the marks. Why only talk about it now? Why no case of assault? And lastly: What is a terminally ill doing playing golf? Shouldn't he rather stick to Rummy or Scrabble?

      RobinHood - 2011-05-29 15:29

      Of course it is bulshit. No evidence, no other comments, no statements from by-standers/ not even the barman!

      Jake - 2011-05-29 16:01

      I agree this is total BS, he even has it down to the racial statements and himself defending zuma. Anybody with half a braincell would know to keep your mouth shut if four guys larger than yourself has an opinion that differs from yours especially if they had to much to drink and are aggressive. He will not be opening any cases as this is all a bunch fell sorry for me crap.

      Jake - 2011-05-29 16:02

      sorry not fell I meant feel.

      Pencilgraffiti - 2011-05-29 18:25

      I'm assuming Shaik wouldn't play at a dingy club.. And most golfclub's are quite exclusive.. If he was at the bar/lounge/clubhouse there would be waiters, barmen, security and personel who would NEVER allow someone to get beaten up without calling the police... If they didn't call the police then why has he been back twice?

  • Santi - 2011-05-29 15:14

    Exactly, cry me a river... as per Daveza. I thought he was dying. Now he's playing golf. Why is this suddenly news... who gives a shyte about Shaik.

      Krolie - 2011-05-29 16:38

      He was supposed to be in jail, but have been allowed to go home on humanitarian grounds because he is supposedly dying?! Instead of spending his last bit of time on earth in bed, he is on the golf course having a good old time and looks the picture of health? Nah, some kind of magical illness he has! When in jail, he is at deaths door. When out, he's the picture of health. What's this illness called? If you are fit enough to play golf Mr Schaik, then you are fit enough to serve your sentence! What a fine example set by JZ for the rest of the criminals out there. They will soon also be too ill to remain incarcerated. What's good for the goose, is good for the gander will be the argument!

      Raymond - 2011-05-29 18:05

      The verbal diarrhoea does'nt seem to cease and the epidemic continues to spread.Again,what a load of BS.Except for himself and shower head,we were all led to believe that he was dying.What was meant was,he dying to come out as he was tired of 'pushing time'.He could be the living dead as there are many around.

      Zion - 2011-05-30 18:22

      It is actually lekker having him on the forums: Then we can gooie the hate speech and sommer hate him because who cares anyway. The fact he was used as a punch bag makes no diffs. Pun intended. And we can also gooie some punches. And to wrap it up in a more sombre note: This clown is pathetic.

    "Par" for the course i would suggest Shailk. A little "birdie" once told me you get what you deserve in life. Did you ever stop and think of the people you have hurt or "clubed" in the past. Time you went back inside.

  • Stryder - 2011-05-29 15:33

    Why the hell shoudl we believe you SHaik? You got what you deserved, in fact it should happen every time you are out in public. F*ck you. Wish I knew these okes were, I would buy them drinks for life. That is if it even really happened, which I doubt, little weasels like you are always too happy to run to the cops. As for not getting aggresive, what happened outside that mosque. You prick.

      He didn't retaliate because they were men, not a defenceless female journalist. Simple really.

  • Proudly SA - 2011-05-29 15:46

    Sounds like a made up story; cannot believe he did not report it or somebody else at club would have definitely ensured story came out if witnessed. Sounds as though he is diverting attenetion from something else or trying to cover up the incident he assaulted others.

  • Slapper - 2011-05-29 15:46

He is a liar and cannot be trusted. Scum.

  • neilza - 2011-05-29 15:48

  • Buitelander - 2011-05-29 15:49

    He was obviously LOOKING for a confrontation. If you are a quiet man not wanting any violence, you will just shut up and walk away even if the BIG brute 4 nogal, calls JZ a k****. There is much more to this story than the sensationalist report in the paper It take 2 to have an argument and there is very few people that would just resort to violence without been provoked.

    Gosh, he almost experienced the terminal stage of his "illness" before he expected it. Ser4ve you right Shabby, for butting into other people's conversation'

  • Budweiser - 2011-05-29 15:59

    He is talking so much crap this guy! I would kick him harder tan anyone if I could get hold of the SOB! He is such a con artist...so is Mo and the whole clan led by the retard Zuma.

  • Budweiser - 2011-05-29 16:02

    Why are other people so lucky as to get to these lying gravy-train con-men? Wish I was there...but the story is an outright lie. The pu...y always have some hired guns around.

  • Jandré - 2011-05-29 16:03

    It would be worse being beaten up in prison, ou chom. Suck it up!

      FerretGee - 2011-05-29 18:03

      He was too scared to be in prison which is why he faked his illness.

      croix - 2011-05-30 07:49

      FerretG - DHL won't deliver his regular case of Cuban cigars to jail!

  • Babba x - 2011-05-29 16:03

    Shame, he can dish it out but he cant take it. Run to mommy (ANC). Quickly!! Run

  • Shai-hulud - 2011-05-29 16:04

    This stinks of bullshit. How convenient that he was beaten up by out-of-towners, before the election, on a golf course, and he doesn't lay charges. It sounds like a fantasy dreamed up by him and his criminal brothers so people can feel sorry for him. Send him back to jail.

  • May - 2011-05-29 16:06

    Golf is a game of integrety and honesty!! He does not qualify to play!!( I would not trust any score he gave me thats if I had the misfortune to play against him)

  • Plesierspier - 2011-05-29 16:06

    They should have done a better job though

  • how_now? - 2011-05-29 16:06

    Ok, so here is my assessment: 1) "I went there alone." - good, so no witnesses 2) "they were out of town people." - perfect - so they can't be traced 3) Shaik had visited his doctor who told him his injuries were not serious" - so probably not much physical evidence of any injuries. 4) "I don't want to lay charges and have this blown out of control." - of course not. We do not want anyone to investigate this now, do we? 5) "I had just played a round of golf and was taking a breather when I heard them talking badly about the ANC and President [Jacob] Zuma. They called him the k-word. I told them this is not the way they should be talking and I won't stand for this kind of talk or behaviour." - as long as the president knows I am still out there defending him and his party against these racial slurs... Hmmm, methinks its lonely out there when your partners in crime abandon you...

      Budweiser - 2011-05-29 16:21

      Here is mine if I may.. 1. I was bored 2. I have not had publicity in a couple weeks 3. I paid my body-guards to lie with me 4. I hop my pel JZ reads this 5. I never went to the doctor - all I needed was to call him to conspire (for his usual fee) 6. I play a decent person sport so people would like me even though I am a crook 7. I am proving (unwillingly) that I am NOT dying and NEVER have. 8. I was not really hit. If four burly young men who uses the k-word beat me, I would have been fairway manure. Please note - I am already human manure. 9. I did report it - to the others in my head. 10. Sorry to the Dept of Corrections for the cheap shot about you that won't believe me - The cheque is in the mail. Etc...

  • Pcxl - 2011-05-29 16:08

    Chop! they didn't hit him hard neough commentary should have been made from his hospitable bed where he is meant to be.

  • Clive - 2011-05-29 16:09

    I think I'm usually a pretty decent sort of guy, but strangely I don't feel the slightest sympathy for Shabby. If he was where he should be (in jail or dead), this wouldn't have happened, so I guess it's a case of chickens coming home to roost.

  • Wonderboy - 2011-05-29 16:18

    I wonder why people like Derby-Lewis, who is really ill cannot get parole?

      Budweiser - 2011-05-29 16:31

      He is white. That's why.

      Philip Darne - 2011-05-30 13:56

      markusjoe, You must be careful who you call a prick as you end up the dick, WIT WOLF got POLITICAL amnesty..there is a difference you know...YOUR whole government got POLITICAL amnesty.....WIT WOLF, along with all other murderers should still be in prison.

  • stofsuier - 2011-05-29 16:19

    SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN JAIL WHERE HE BELONGS AND IT WAS PROBABLY SAFER THERE

      Budweiser - 2011-05-29 16:30

      Nope...his back-entrance would be candy for the Nigerians in the yard eventually...baw wa wa!!

  • struth - 2011-05-29 16:30

    @clark something is very fishy with this story. The fish rots from the head down.

  • RobinHood - 2011-05-29 16:31

    Is the bar-floor Ok?

  • ZACommentator - 2011-05-29 16:41

    What is a Muslim doing in a bar anyway

      FerretGee - 2011-05-29 18:10

      The same thing they do in all the casino's around the country. "Just waiting to meet someone" (Yeah right)

      ZACommentator - 2011-05-29 18:24

      I know a thing or two about casinos, the secret access, the boots full of cash and the wine, women and goings on by that kind.

      RobinHood - 2011-05-29 18:30

      Noooo not our steadfast Shabir and Co

      Haha, I work in the Middle East, and believe me, I have seen how quick their religous believes fly out the window as soon as they walk into a bar. Get as drunk as skunks. Women go into the bathrooms with their cloaks and abayas on and come out with jeans, shirts and full of make-up. Only Muslim when they want to be.

      Matt - 2011-05-30 13:56

      Yup - I heard of Palestinians hopping across the Israeli border to get booze... also, maybe it's changed but for years, the UK Lottery's highest winner (some 20-million pounds) was a Muslim, who promptly left his wife and did a runner...
