Priviledge Gonah a 29 year old Zimbabwean millionaire was buying food at a food outlet in New Town when a drunken taxi driver reversed and bumped into his parked Mercedes Benz in a packing bay by a drunk taxi driver. The taxi driver made it clear that he didn’t care about the damage he had caused and then drove off. I don’t believe that there is a human being who is that cruel. The cruelty I witnessed was influenced by alcohol as the taxi driver seemed not to even know himself. This happened in Newtown, Johannesburg on 02 July 2017 in the presence of Johannesburg Central Police Station officers.
Whether I am drunk, I don’t care. Whether I bumped in your expensive car. I don’t care.
As if that was not enough after the drunken taxi driver had assaulted Gonah he drove off and the Johannesburg Central Police Station officers did nothing. The taxi driver asked him to check by himself how much he had bumped as he was not interested to know how much damage he caused to Gonah’s black Merc. With his music so loud and so drunk the drunken taxi driver drove off.
As if that was not enough the Saps police from Johannesburg Central Police Station who were present refused to help Gonah. They watched all that happened and never bothered to help the 29 year old Zimbabwean millionaire Priviledge Gonah who then asked “if you can’t help me what must I do?” The Saps police officers at the scene told Gonah to go and report at the police station as there was nothing they could do to help him. Gonah proceeded to Johannesburg Central Police Station to report the case.
As if that was not enough the Saps police office told Priviledge Gonah that there was nothing they could help him with. Saying all they could do was giving him an accident report to protect himself from the guy that bumped into his car and drove off. Gonah asked the police if anything could be done, but the police officers said “that’s the law in south Africa and if you are not happy with it, its your problem.
No follow ups were done even though Gonah even though the young millionaire had the number plate of the drunken taxi driver. The police officers went on to say “(imoto zishayisana everyday lendaba yako hayiko special) cars are bumping on each other everyday and your matter is not special. “
Now Gonah’s question is “Is there no law to protect innocent people in South Africa? I’m really disappointed that Africans are still treating each other this way, and that there is no law to protect them. Hatred, division, greediness, lawlessness and poverty is the order of the day. I pray for a better Africa” Gonah said.
