Cape Town – A foreign man is begging police and authorities to help him after he lost a kidney and an eye after being shot twice during a 12-year period.
The Daily Voice spoke to Mohsan Ameen, 44, who is recovering at his home in Delft after he was shot during a robbery last month.
Eighteen years ago, Ameen fled Pakistan for South Africa in the hopes of a better life.
But life in Cape Town has been nothing but pain and misery for Ameen, who is now living without a right eye and a kidney.
He was shot in the eye and ear on July 16 while locking the premises of the shop in Afram Street, Leiden, Delft, when he was approached by four gunmen who opened fire on him and fled with two cellphones and cash.
“They shot me in the ear and right eye,” explains Ameen.
“The community and the police who were in the area scared them off; they took two cellphones and money.
“After I lost my kidney, I have been unable to work because I have constant hospital visits. I help out in the shop.”
