An Estcourt father of five who worked as a general assistant for the Road Traffic Inspectorate for 26 years has lost his pension and will go to jail for seven years for shooting an alleged cellphone thief in a tavern with an unlicensed firearm.

Duma said he managed to stop him, but when he was about half a metre away, the man made another dash for the door. Duma then drew his gun and “tried to fire in the air”. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
