Three more security guards killed

Another three security guards have been killed in attacks believed to be linked to the ongoing security guard strike. In Port Elizabeth, a security guard was found dead at Salt Lake near Galvandale. Police spokesperson Verna Brink says the man was in full uniform but details surrounding the murder are still unclear. And in KwaZulu-Natal, two working security guards have been shot dead in separate incidents in Chatsworth and Pinetown. More than 20 security guards have lost their lives in attacks around the country over the past few weeks.

Meanwhile, six robbers used axes to attack security guards in cash in transit heist in Johannesburg. The police’s Mosima Manganyi says the robbers had guns, but hacked the two guards with axes in their upper bodies. They are being treated in hospital and are in a serious, but stable, condition. The robbers rammed the security van with their vehicles in Kensington on Sunday afternoon before attacking the guards and fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money.
