Two South Coast men, Reevek Ramlall (35) and Durell Govender (24), who are facing attempted murder charges for allegedly running over a “friend”, have been denied bail at the Port Shepstone magistrate’s court.
A week ago, the two men allegedly twice ran over South African National Defence Force (SANDF) member Vishay Singh outside his family home in Marburg.
Singh’s sister, Vashna Moolchand, said her brother suffered injuries that include severe brain damage, fractures to his ribs and legs, and a punctured lung. The 22-year-old was taken to Port Shepstone Hospital after the accident, however, Moolchand said that Singh has since been moved to a private hospital where he is currently seeing a neurologist because he is still unconscious.
Although Singh’s family say they don’t know what prompted the attack, sources allege that the two men were his friends.
Singhs father, Vjay, said their main concern right now is his son’s recovery. “And as for the suspects, I trust the law will take its course and justice will prevail,” he said.
Singh’s second sister, Verona, said she cannot thank the public enough for their concern, thoughts and prayers.
“We are all absolutely grateful to have you in our lives and to be there for our boy. God is the greatest ever; He will surely perform this miracle.
“We still beg each and everyone to please continue praying until our soldier has recovered and at least gained consciousness,” said Verona.
