Journo claims he didn’t provoke Montana in brick incident
Rapport journalist Pieter-Louis Myburgh was at one of Montana’s properties in Pretoria last night.
Rapport journalist Pieter-Louis Myburgh was at one of Montana's properties in Pretoria last night, which is still under construction, to investigate if it is tied to Prasa contracts.
Myburgh says Montana unexpectedly arrived.
After going into the property, Montana then allegedly came out with a brick in his hand.
"Mr Montana held the brick up at me but luckily I anticipated it. His attempt was very clear. It happened very quickly and fortunately I had gained some forward momentum with the vehicle and it hit the back of the car, the back left door."
Montana has been unavailable for comment.
On Thursday, Myburgh opened a case against Montana at a local police station.
Sanef spokesperson Adriaan Basson insisted that Myburgh was not trespassing and said Montana's violent reaction is 'shocking behaviour'.
"This person then called Montana who came out of the house, chasing the journalist with a brick in his hand and when Myburgh saw that Montana was intending to throw the brick, he sped away and the brick hit the car he was driving."
