This is the Coffin assault video which saw two White men force a black man,Victor Rethabile Mlotshwa, into a coffin in South Africa while supposedly investigating him.As a black man and as a human being this makes me absolutely sick to the pits of my stomach! How can people still do this to each other in 2016 simply cos of a man's skin?
The Coffin video which some people have wrongly searched for using the term Coffee video,has raised racial tensions in South Africa between whites and blacks.There have been strong protests in some parts of the country.
The man eventually escaped,although we haven't been told how yet.The 2 white men,Willem Oosthuizen and Theo Martins Jackson, had threatened to put a snake in with Victor and burn
him.To hear a grown man make the terrifying sound the victim made while being forced in was really a sad thing to hear.He sounded like a terrifying animal in captivity.
The kidnapping and horror show happened at JM De Beer Boerdery next to Komati Power Station, close to Middelburg in Mpumalanga.The two men in the coffin assault case, have been charged to court.They appeared in court on Wednesday 16th Nov.
