Afrikaans singer didn’t fall, he was ‘attacked’

Johannesburg – Afrikaans singer Jannie Moolman, who is currently in hospital with serious injuries, didn’t fall from the roof of a restaurant but was attacked by a group of school boys, Rapport reported.

Huisgenoot reported last week that Moolman allegedly fell from the roof of a restaurant in Hartbeespoort during a bachelor party.

But according to new reports it is believed that the singer was attacked by a group of underage boys that have been causing havoc in pubs in the area.

Rapport also revealed that on the night of the alleged attack Moolman was asked to leave a pub in the area after he was caught dancing on the table with his pants unzipped.

According to Lara Evert, owner of the Bundu Bar, she asked Moolman and his friends to leave after the incident.

The group of friends then moved on to Mango bar where Moolman was later found unconscious.

A private detective has been appointed to investigate the case.

Moolman has had 3 surgeries and is still recovering in hospital.

    So, the boys are known troublemakers. When will the police deal with them - when someone dies?

      Far too much to expect, Ted bug. Over the weekend I saw a sign again that says, "smash and grab hotspot". If they can go to the trouble of having the sign made and erected, why not put a cop there now and then ?

      @Ria: What?! And actually do active policing?? What about the community's human right to appropriation without compensation??

      Consider if he and his mates behaved themselves and drank less all would have been fine.

      Those signs aren't a warning, they're adverts for job creation

      Ria, maybe is is an advertisement for those masochists who are looking for a smash and grab experience!

    The next Waterkloof four. We need more prisons for all the f*ck up children in SA.

    Was the culprit not perhaps Ricky Louw?...It has a habit of creeping up on you!

  • Mike Olwagen - 2014-04-14 10:41

    Dancing with your fly open on the table and young surely not.....

    Gravity. Such a cunning and underhanded enemy. Especially when intoxicated...

    There are a couple of things not quite right with this story. Firstly, what are underage boys doing at pubs. Secondly, why is a private investigator involved and not the police. Thirdly, what kind of dumb@ss dances on tables with his fly down?

      Jannie Moolman

      Leigh-Rose Jenkins - 2014-04-14 13:07

      How many times has someone pointed out to you, or you've pointed out to someone else, that their fly is down? Obviously it's totally unacceptable to possibly overlook the fly or having one that sneakily creeps down allowing for some embarrassing moments...

      And it normal to be on the roof?

      The guy is fighting for his life in hospital, he is a human being like all of us, have some respect, just because he's an Afrikaans singing icon does not mean he cannot have fun, or is this becoming an Oscar Pistorius case.. I'm sure you were an angel your whole life, please could you teach me how to be like you so that I also become the biggest bore ever..

      Marlene Black - 2014-04-22 21:56

      Alicia, when you are a public figure I think it's kind of important always to be in control of yourself and your actions, no matter where you are. You owe it to your fans and yourself. Dancing on a table with his zipper open is not what I would call responsible Behaviour.

    So wait a minute. If that's his story is it not obvious that there was law breaking of another kind. You know the kinda dangerous criminal activity metro and SAPS find more preferable to police. don't Harties also share in the the same debilitating laws as us in more civilized areas? How did they get to the other pub I here no mention of a designated driver, also I think if they were that drunk it would have been just a matter of time before a mullet like that started a issue somewhere. Then the next day it's normally someone else's fault

    I believe I can "fly"...

    Who is this guy ? Never heard of him

    He is pretending to be the male equivalent of Mylie Sirrus
