Dubbed by onlookers as “another edition of Marikana”, striking Willowton Logistics employees had to watch four of their colleagues shot and murdered by unknown gunmen in Mountain Rise, Kwazulu-Natal on Monday.

May ­Mofokeng, 45, and Alfred Malinga, 32, were shot dead and while their colleagues - Themba Mvelase, 50, and Christian Masisi, 45, both remained critical after suffering gunshot wounds.

This occurred when several gunmen randomly attacked eight men sleeping in their vehicles on a field near the Mountain Rise police station.

The men who witnessed the incident form part of a group of 20 truck drivers protesting outside, Willowton Logistics offices on Ohrtmann Road for the last few weeks.
