An angry Khayelitsha oupa threw a bucket of poo on a police van on Wednesday, demanding that cops return his R3500 subwoofer.
Mongezi Gubuza travelled 5km’s from his home to Khayelitsha Police Station with the emmer k*k in a sakkie, demanding that police return his speaker which was confiscated in December.
Mongezi says he has tried to get the speaker back, but cops have refused to give it to him.
The gatvol oupa was min gespin that Police Minister Bheki Cele was inside the police station on Wednesday when the incident happened. Cele was visiting the area and locked in a meeting following a deadly weekend on the Cape Flats.
Mongezi says he and his friends were listening to music on the day his speaker was allegedly taken from him.
“We were listening to music (when) cops came and asked that we turn down the volume. We did that (but) after they left my friends turned it up again and the police confiscated my speaker and I want it back,” he says.
Mongezi says he collected the drolle from the bucket toilets used in the informal settlement then poured it into a 5 litre emmer and travelled about five kilometres to the police station where he threw the poo on the parked van.
“They (police) took my speaker and I want it back,” he said after defacing a police van.
“There is no case number registered to my speaker or the incident. I will come here and do this again if I do not get my speaker. If I have to die then so be it.”
With the dop ban lifted, Mongezi says he wants to klop his music in the comfort of his home.
“The speaker cost me R3500 and I want to use it now. The police must stop abusing me and give me back my speaker. I want to sit at home and drink while listening to music,” he says.
Police spokesperson Colonel Andre Traut says the matter is under investigation.
“The incident where a male person threw a police vehicle with waste (on Wednesday) is under investigation. Any person with a complaint against police is encouraged to approach management so that an investigation can be launched. Throwing our vehicles with waste or any other irresponsible behaviour could land you in trouble,” says Traut.
