60-year-old Thamsanqa who worked as a truck driver at the Durban based company, said:
“I confronted my boss about this but he got angry and pulled out a gun. He then started shooting at me and I took cover."
He said he had been injured while loading one of the trucks and despite the fact that he told his boss about his injuries and he demanded a doctor's report, he never expected him to remove money from his salary.
“I told my boss and he told me to go and see a doctor. When I came back the following day he demanded a doctor’s certificate, which I didn’t have. But I promised to get it on Saturday. I thought he understood but later I saw that my salary was short.”
When contacted, Thamsanqa's boss said:
“Sorry, I won’t comment further on this matter as it is in the hands of the police.”
Confirming the incident, the KZN police spokeswoman identified as Captain Nqobile Gwala, said:
“A 60-year-old man was almost shot by a known suspect. The victim managed to flee. No one has been arrested at the moment.”
