Johannesburg - A man was killed in Motetema, near Groblersdal, early Saturday morning when he was run over by a car as he fled from an assault, Limpopo police said.

Lt-Col Mohale Ramatseba said Obby Simon Sewela, 38, was stabbed in the head by two men at a tavern shortly after midnight.

Sewela tried to run away, but was killed when he was struck by a car.

The driver of the car did not stop after the accident, Ramatseba said.

Sewela's attackers had not been arrested by Saturday afternoon, but were wanted for assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

The driver, who also had not been arrested, was wanted for culpable homicide.

      Agreed. Whether its consequence-free rapes and murders, it's a bunch of racist black and white (apparently 'educated') ***holes commenting on news articles.
