Celebs react to viral video of man assaulting a teen boy over salt


Lady Du, Vusi Nova and Prince Kaybee are among the local stars expressing their outrage on social media, following the recent brutal attack of a black teenage boy by a white male in Limpopo, this week.

In a video that went viral, the 50-year-old armed man is seen kicking and assaulting the 16-year-old in the chest and stomach outside a food outlet in Groblersdal in Limpopo on the eve of Youth Day.

According to police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, the fight broke when the young man, who was waiting at the fish and chips outlet, asked the man to pass him the salt.

“Our preliminary investigation indicates that the fight started in a restaurant that sells fish and fish. There was a quarrel over the salt… the fight emanated from there.

“Apparently, the boy wanted to use the salt and the suspect also wanted to use the salt, and then the fight broke out,” Mojapelo told Xoli Mngambi during a recent interview with Newzroom Africa.

Elaborating on the tragic event, the victim’s mother Julia Makweng said: “The man pointed the gun at my elder son. Then my younger son wanted to stop the man from shooting his brother. That’s where the assault started.

“My son is complaining of chest pains and his whole body is painful. I’m still waiting for the results of how far is the injury,” Makweng told Mngambi.
