I had just arrived from Zimbabwe on personal visit and was on my way to MTN taxi rank to catch taxis to Fourways when out of the blue a scruffy red eyed man spoke to me in a mumbling voice. I ignored him and suddenly he produced an Okapi knife and two more guys encircled me while this guy went for my pocket to grab the phone. I got hold of my pockets containing my passport and wallet and wrestled with guys whilst shouting for help. the other  thug then instructed his partners to leave me. As I walked away I discovered that I had lost my spectacles.This made me saw South Africa in bad light and I think a lot has to be done to make streets free of these thugs. if they are foreigners they must be deported after saving their time in prison.
