Man in court for killing petrol attendant

2013-06-20 10:18

Cape Town - A man has appeared in the Mitchells Plain Magistrate's Court for beating a petrol attendant to death, the Cape Argus reported on Thursday.

The newspaper reported that Labeeq Manan, 30, appeared in the dock on Wednesday and his case was postponed because the court roll was too full.

He would reportedly appear on 2 July for a formal bail application.

Lawrence Mandipazano, 34, was hit several times by an enraged motorist at a Lentegeur service station on 4 June and later died in hospital.

Surveillance footage reportedly showed the driver of a BMW driving off, returning with a wooden plank, and then attacking Mandipazano with it.

      This has been caused by tik and other illegal substances, addicts lose their empathy and become violent monsters.

    Cheers jou idiot, now you are a south african criminal like 100's of thousands other in and out of prison just because you couldn't hold your little temper and succumbed to a tantrum.

  • Hanneli Erasmus - 2013-06-20 10:59

    People should think about the consequences of their actions before they resort to using violence..two lives ruined because the couldn't control his anger..what a shame..

  • Leonard Hook - 2013-06-20 11:00

    15 years maximum if he pleads guilty . It was heat of the moment, and he had a cooling period when he went away....he was in total control of his actions.

  • Serame Seleki - 2013-06-20 11:26

    Lock him up and throw away the keys...He must rot in jail.R.I.P Mandipazano

  • Lawson Lutchman - 2013-06-20 11:27

    Man! I would understood if he beat a call centre agent (I would have even joined in with a snot clap or two), but these are petrol jockeys...

      Nasiefa Jackson Lazarus - 2013-06-20 14:05

    skiapas .....unfair comment to BMW drivers.

      Jo Lekkading - 2013-06-20 11:40

      Why are bmw's like thongs? Because every 2nd a-hole has one.

      Jo Lekkading - 2013-06-20 11:41

      I have yet to come across a BMW driver who wasn't convinced that ownership of the roads was included in the vehicle purchase ... But indicators obviously cost a small fortune.

      DanielDennett - 2013-06-20 13:25

      Jo how jealous are you ...enjoy your Tazz.

      Mhaka Khoza - 2013-06-20 22:59

  • Mahlatse Patience - 2013-06-20 11:28

    This comment is for Bernard Nienaber , i suggest you keep your racial comments to yourself , its bad enough that this country is falling apart by all race .So! i will be saying this to you , you sound uneducated.

  • Albert Prinsloo - 2013-06-20 13:45

    How about including WHY he did this? surely this should be part of the news, you see a headline, and you read a watered down version of the headline. When I see a bulletin I want to read WHY to the headline, news nowadays...

      Busisiwe MakaSessy Zidepa - 2013-06-20 15:25

      it doesnt matter why,,,wat matters is that he took someones life and he had no right to he is not God

      Edridge Mugweni - 2013-06-21 06:52

      This has been in the news from the day it happened man, apparantly the bmw driver was angry as the petrol attendant refused to fill up his tank until he paid. Company policy thats all. By the time he paid, petrol attendant ws serving someone else....thats why he got whacked, or maybe its becuase he is zimbabwean..

  • Mulisa Makhalimela - 2013-06-20 19:10

    this is bad,because u r a petrol attendence doesnt mean we must take u otherwise

  • Ditoa-re Gypsy - 2013-06-21 07:21

    To own a BMW does it makes u own peoples life? Shame to motorists with that mentality, I wish by the time you come out from jail BMW will be stoped in production and see what will make you feel like God

  • Tshepo Lekote - 2013-06-21 07:53

    What an animal... I hope he rots in jail for taking another human being's life.... Bloody animal !!!
