According to the courier guy(name withheld) he was making a stop at Kopanong Center to drop a few items when two robbers approached him and tell him to get in the back of his bakkie so they can lock him in the back and take his vehicle and whatever he was delivering.
“I knew if I got in the back of that car I was a dead man so I used my military training skills to defend myself, I grabbed the pistol and wrestled the robber until he gave up the gun, He was so weak I bet he did not even had breakfast”.
