WATCH | Man shot in head by cop during argument at Gauteng hotel

Published

on

A man is in a coma after he was shot in the head, allegedly by a police officer, during an argument at Misty Hills Country Hotel, in Muldersdrift, Gauteng.

The man, who was a guest at the hotel, was shot after he allegedly fought with staff at the hotel on Saturday. It is not yet clear what the argument was about.

In a video of the incident, which has gone viral, the man is seen putting on his underwear as police officers stand around him at the entrance of a room.

One police officer is heard saying, “now you are playing dangerous”, as he approaches with a gun after ostensibly cocking it.

He shouts at the entrance: “Whose playing dangerous? You f****** coward. Come on.”

A woman off screen is heard saying that they are supposed to feel safe around the police, not endangered.

The man then comments that he is ashamed of the police officers. He is then seen grabbing a gun from an officer, saying, “take that gun, shoot me, shoot me”.

The officer’s colleague is seen firing a shot at him and he crumples to the floor, eliciting screams from the woman in the room.

According to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID), following an argument with staff, the manager had requested that the man leave the premises, and the hotel would refund him. However, he refused.

“… the security and manager followed him to his room and requested him to leave, then he became more aggressive,” said IPID spokesperson Grace Langa.

She said police officers were called to the hotel to assist and, when they arrived, the man started fighting with the police.

“He took a firearm out of the bed drawer, cocked it and one bullet fell down, and it is alleged the victim disarmed one police officer of his firearm.

“The guest (victim) was in possession of two firearms, then one police officer took out his service pistol and shot that guest once in the head,” said Langa.

His wife is believed to have been present.

Palesa Exposes #Amabishop Bishop Julius. His Weakness Revealed

The latest episode of #Amabishop started in a hit conversion. Nimrod Nkosi still continues to expose fake pastors. In the laest episode the panel was very more formal and Bishop exposed each other. We come across prophet Palesa who said she had a weakness of dating woman. She was exposed to the weakness of being a lesbian for two years. Palesa was possessed with “spirit of lesbianism.”Palesa had a dream 1st then later she found herself in the confusion.

The moment Palesa started relaying her story, Julius commented to say people must not speak on behalf of victims of the things that did not experience personally, he further denied knowing her. Palesa before leaving she said she did not experience Mommy 1st hand. Bishop Julius has been exposed of spirit of weakness and famousness. Palesa has exposed him after he died knowing her in national tv. Palesa said that she is his friend, they know each other, they communicate and share but Bishop Julius is denying everything including not knowing her. Bishop Julius denied knowing her because he is suing the lady R500 000.

Bishop Julius says he doesn’t know anything the lady is talking about. Imagine coming to #AmaBishop to discuss other people’s sgaxas only for your tea to be served during the show. Palesa amd Bishop Julius knows each other and they know each other’s secrets. That’s the only reason why his denies knowing her.This one needed the wisdom of Bishop Maponga and Pastor Makhado. Julius seems to be hiding something. He’s not saying much regarding tonight’s topic @MojaLoveTv #Amabishop

This Pastor has got his own scandals. Last time when he was here you could see his hiding something. They way he was defending corrupt Pastors. We can now agree to something that sometimes people’s change in sexuality could be a spirit that has possessed them.
