Thief runs into speeding car

eighteen year old Mervine Gawanab almost lost his life at UNAM during Mafikizolo show after he ran into the road all for the love of a Samsung tablet he had snatched from an Angolan reveller on Saturday night.
According to an eye-witness, Simasiku Ilonga, the victim and owner of the tablet, Claudia had been talking on her phone while walking to the taxi-rank with her friends.
“There were three boys that were pretending to be taxi drivers, one got close to Claudia, grabbed her phone and ran while she screamed. It all happened too fast, the next thing we saw was the guy lying on the road and the car did not stop.”
Gawanab had run straight into a while vehicle driving out of the UNAM campus.
Like a script from the movies, while everyone was still in shock and others screaming, Gawanab’s accomplises put him into an unmarked silver grey Toyota Corolla and sped off.
They unfortunately forgot his wallet, one of his shoes and the tablet, which the Metro crew handed over to the UNAM security detail. images@thevillager.com.na
