A MOTHER of four from Kokstad is devastated after her 30-year-old son, Siyabonga was stabbed in the head and beaten with a firearm while being robbed recently.

Nomzekelo Mgojo said she hopes the police will arrest the perpetrators soon.

It is alleged that Siyabonga was riding a bicycle on March 4 at 7 pm when unknown men threw a rope onto his bicycle causing him to fall. They then attacked him. Apart from assaulting him, the men also tied both his hands and feet and robbed him, according to Mgojo.

“A member of the public saw my son lying on the ground and called an ambulance which took him to a hospital in Kokstad. Because of his serious condition, he was transferred to a hospital in Pietermaritzburg,” she said.

SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo confirmed that a case of robbery was opened on Monday and no arrest has been made. Siyabonga is still recovering.
