Zimbabwean killed in SA acid attack by disgruntled fired worker

Ndumiso Luphahla (32) of Bulawayo died on Monday last week after succumbing to injuries sustained in a horrific acid attack. Luphahla had acid poured on his face allegedly by Maxwell Moyo. Luphahla who was a manager at Ocean Basket Restaurant in Johannesburg had reportedly fired Moyo for misconduct. It is suspected that Moyo was retaliating for the dismissal. Luphahla was buried on Sunday at Luveve Cemetery in Bulawayo.

Moyo is now on the run.

The deceased’s uncle, Freddie Luphahla, said:
