A NELSON Mandela Metropolitan University student described yesterday how he cheated death after being shot with a police firearm that had been stolen just hours before during a burglary.

Kamogelo Matshasa, 20, of Pretoria, was shot at 6am on Saturday during an attempted robbery in Havelock Street, Central.

Two men – Denver Sangotsha, 26, and Morne Joseph, 21, – appeared in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court yesterday in connection with the Havelock Street incident.

They are also accused of breaking into the Gordon Terrace, Central, flat of a policeman based at the Port Elizabeth Airport and stealing his firearm, bulletproof vest and a laptop.
