Johannesburg – A Fourways, Sandton man met a gruesome death in Lenasia when he died after stepping on live wires on the side of the road.

The man had parked his car on the side of Nirvana Drive and went to answer the call of nature when he met his tragic death.

The incident happened on Saturday afternoon and the ANC’s PR Councillor for Ward 10 in Lenasia, Zarina Motala, said what had happened was “absolutely heartbreaking”.

According to Motara, the man normally leaves his Fourways home and travels to the Station Butcher in Lenasia where he buys meat.

Motara said when after the man bought the meat, he must have desperately needed the loo as he decided to park on the side of the road and relieved himself.


Unfortunately he stepped on live wires that run from the streets lights and into the informal settlements. He died at the scene.

“People in the nearby shops must have seen him lying there and they called the police who then safely removed his body.

Residents must be really pissed off.

EDIT: On a serious note, they KNOW it's a problem, they KNOW there are illegal connections, they KNOW it's causing problems but they haven't done **** about it in two years? Yeah that's top-notch municipalling there.

“We are busy planning an operation to cut off the illegal connections,” Mangena said. Yeah because it takes so much planning.

Step 1
Find illegal connection.
Step 2
Cut illegal connection.
Step 3
Shoot the living **** out of the people attacking you.
Step 4
???
Step 5
Profit.

Did they follow the illegal connection and prosecute the person responsible?

Not having high hopes on this one....
No because that would provoke a protest. And heavens knows you can't let people protest, that's the worst thing in the world. Rather let the infrastructure suffer, the rest of the world go to **** and people die before people *gasp* PROTEST.

Article says he works there. Why not just piss at work, or at the shops? Dude did illegal thing, got bzzd.
Article says nothing about him working there only that he went there to buy meat.

A sign of the times!
a pee on the side of the road has now become as dangerous as breaking down.
