Triathlete Brutally Attacked With Chainsaw

Horror as chainsaw gang attack top South African athlete and try to cut off his LEGS

Mhlengi Gwala previously represented South Africa at global competitions in Chicago and the Netherlands in 2015 and 2017 respectively.

A triathlete was attacked on the side of the road in Durban, South Africa, Tuesday by three people who almost cut his legs off with a chainsaw.

Jackson said Gwala told him that the attackers sawed into his right calf (with a boring blade), damaging muscle, nerves and bone. "Two of them held him down while the other started on his leg".

Gwala's training partner Sandile Shange told the BBC that the attackers didn't want Gwala's phone, bike or watch.

His athletic sponsor, Sue de la Porte, said Gwala was then dragged into the surrounding bushes by the men who then attempted to saw the 26-year-old's leg off. He dragged himself out of the bush onto the road and a private security vehicle picked him up and took him to the nearest hospital.

"They took the chainsaw, which they were not using electrically, but manually".

Sangma submitted his resignation to Meghalaya Governor Ganga Prasad in Shillong following the assembly election results . Echoing a similar stance, UDP president Donkupar Roy today extended the party's support to the NDP.

Triathlete Henry Schoemen, who won bronze for South Africa at the Rio Olympics in 2016, called the attack on Gwala "disgusting". He said the saw missed a main artery and that surgeons are confident they can save the leg.

Gwala has represented South Africa at worldwide competitions in Chicago in 2015 and in the Netherlands previous year.

Shange said the attackers only stopped cutting on one leg because the blade was too blunt and got stuck at the bone.

"I haven't quite got to grips with exactly what happened".

Jackson said the attackers also started sawing his left leg before stopping and fleeing.

"We don't yet know how far they went in‚ whether they were trying to cut it off‚ or what the circumstances are".
