.NUMSA strongly condemns the unnecessary, brutal killing of Armanda Muhaswa, a petrol attendant at a petrol station in Zola, Soweto, at the weekend for unpaid petrol.
This happens after two others were run over by motorists who were avoiding to pay for petrol dispensed.
We call on the SAPS to diligently investigate this brutal murder and bring the perpetrators to justice.
NUMSA extends its condolences to the family of Armando Muhaswa and wishes a speedy recovery of two other Forecourt Attendants who were run over by motorist fleeing from paying for petrol.
Forecourt attendants are workers who keep this economy working by availing their services to the public seven days per week, 24 hours per day, everyday of the year.
NUMSA had preliminary discussions with the Fuel Retailers Association (FRA) regarding this matter and the overall safety of the lives of petrol stations workers.
