Durban - A Durban pastor rushed to confront three men who were holding a woman at knife-point while wedged in gridlock traffic in Pinetown on Monday.Charismatic churchman, Bishop Vusi Dube, had seen three men accosting a woman, a tourist from Singapore, in the car in front of him while at a standstill on Old Main Road.Dube, 51, snapped two pictures of the men with his cellphone before leaping from his car and chasing them on foot.“When they saw me get out and run towards them they just started running away. I chased them but they all just disappeared.“At any time I will run after a criminal, irrespective of the fact that I am a man of the cloth. That person [the victim] could have been a member of my church and I would do anything to defend them,” he said. “I didn’t think of my safety, I thought that her life was in danger. I thought they might have a gun on her.“What came into my mind is that if I had a weapon to defend this woman, I would have used it. It snapped out of my mind that I was a pastor and only thought she could have been harmed. If I had a gun I would probably be in prison today,” Dube added.“A lot of people saw what happened and they did nothing. Even when I was running after the suspects, they just watched.”Dube said if the three were before him in his congregation, he would try and alter their mindset.“They need to understand that you need to work to make a living, you can’t live off the blood of others."He added that the woman had been stripped of her wallet and cellphone by the men who were holding her at knife-point.“I could see that she was still shaking so I drove with her to Hillcrest. I am going to give my pictures to the police today because these men need to be caught.” Photos supplied by Bishop Vusi Dube.
