A Zimbabwean man Limukani Ndikinya Ndebele from Nkayi was attacked and killed by a mob following a foiled car hijack in Midrand, South Africa.

This comes barely a fortnight after the callous murder of Elvis Nyathi who was beaten and set alight in Diepsloot.

Ndebele reportedly attempted to hijack a car along Allandale Road close to Chloorkop but fell victim after the car failed to start and motorists who witnessed the attempted hijack pounced on him.

Limukani is said to have tried to flee on foot but the mob caught him and severely beat him.

He was later found in an open space with an open wound in his head and a broken arm.
