Busker cops sus­pended

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS - SIBONGAKONKE MAMA

THREE of the six law en­force­ment of­fi­cers who dragged Lunga Good­man Nono, 51, and broke his gui­tar while he was busk­ing in St Ge­orge’s Mall have been sus­pended and face a for­mal dis­ci­plinary hear­ing and a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Richard Bos­man, the city’s ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for safety and se­cu­rity, said a charge of ma­li­cious dam­age to prop­erty for dam­age to Nono’s gui­tar had been laid with the po­lice.

On Mon­day the blind gui­tarist was dragged from his usual busk­ing spot in St Ge­orge’s Mall, where he has played his gui­tar since 2008, in front of his wife Abi­gail and 10year-old daugh­ter Por­tia.
