A driver who ran over and killed a child didn’t get what he expected on that day as the angry South African mob in KwazuluNatal descended on him and stabbed him 24 times to death.
The community got so angry after the unlicensed driver crushed the ten year old to death.
Reaction Unit South Africa said they received multiple calls from the public requesting help for a critically injured boy.
The bakkie driver was stabbed more than 24 times during the attack.
â€śThe mob also stoned his Nissan bakkie before they set it alight. Several residents complained that the unlicensed driver who appeared to be in his teens was constantly seen driving recklessly in the area,â€ť Balram said.
Itâ€™s alleged the driver was allegedly speeding when he lost control of the bakkie and drove over the child, who was playing on the side of the road.
Instead of stopping, he reportedly sped off and crashed into a boundary fence when he was caught by the community.
An empty beer bottle was found in the car.
