“We are saying that this is totally unacceptable, that the value and life of a human being have become so cheap in South Africa. We are calling upon the parents and the manager of Nicholas to go to the nearest police station and lay a charge of grievous bodily harm (GBH) against these five rangers who have assaulted this person in a violent manner,” says COPE’s spokesperson Dennis Bloom.
Dlamini is expected to be discharged from the hospital on Sunday after undergoing surgery.
