VIDEO clips of horrific scenes of a City of Polokwane municipality worker driving over his colleagues and smashing municipal vehicles with a work truck have been leaked.
The disturbing visuals have been on social media today, about a month after the incident happened.
The incident happened at the municipality’s offices in Ladanna, Limpopo early in August 2020.
It’s still not known what had caused his erratic and dangerous behaviour.
Loud gunshots can also be heard in the video when police shooting at the truck.
In another video, Walter is seen trapped inside the mangled and bloody truck.
He yells in Sepedi at the cop who approaches him with a gun in his hand, in Sepedi ,”Betha moo hlohogong ke tsamaye” meaning shoot me in the head so that I die.
The cop deliberately shoots against the wall and Walter screams.
Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo confirmed that the Polokwane Municipality officer Rassie Smit, aged 36, died on 7 August 2020, a while after he was run over by a truck driven by Walter Madubanya on 7 August.
Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo says that the attempted murder case against the accused, Walter Madubanya has now changed to murder.
“The suspect has been denied bail by the Polokwane Magistrate Court and his cases were remanded to 16 September 2020 for formal bail application”, he said.
