Jacob Mashokoa EW News Radio 702 – Johannesburg police have reported that a man has been killed in Germiston by striking National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) members. Workers in the steel and engineering industry are on strike. A factory owner said a huge crowd pulled a private business owner out of his bakkie laden with steel pipes on Thursday afternoon.“ Basically, they pulled the driver out, started hitting him. The crowd sort of dispersed, police came in, one of our guys came around the corner at the same time, obviously seeing the guy was pronounced dead on the scene,” he said.
