Cement slab dropped on couple’s car

2014-11-18 00:00

A WARTBURG man and his wife were almost killed when a cement slab was dropped on their car near the Howick N3 off-ramp on Saturday night.

Mduduzi Zuma said he and his wife were travelling toward Pietermaritzburg late in the evening when a slab of cement smashed on to the bonnet of their car.

“We were at the bridge near the Howick off-ramp … As we passed underneath, a huge cement slab the size of a large paving brick was thrown on to the car.

“I thought about stopping the car but decided not to.”

Zuma said he suspected the incident was orchestrated by a gang trying to stop cars and rob the occupants.
