Durban – If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
Just ask a Durban man who thought he was in for a “good time” but was robbed and left for dead.
The 45-year-old had been looking forward to an intimate reunion with an old female friend at her Newlands West home in Durban and, for good measure, she was going to invite another woman to their tryst.
The father of five, whose identity may not be revealed at this stage, was enticed into the threesome which included his friend, Rekha Singh, 37, who said in a text message: “Why don’t you come over and we can have some drinks and maybe call a friend to join us.”
Singh’s proposition aroused the man’s interest and he asked for a picture of the other woman.
When he asked Singh if she had been in a threesome before, she said: “I don’t kiss and tell.” But on the day of the rendezvous, as he started to get intimate with Singh and the other woman, Gwen Mackenzie, 26, he was taken by surprise and attacked by a man wielding a hammer.
The women allegedly joined Pakistani national, Sayed Asif Ali Kazmi, 30, in the attack on the man, who was eventually locked in Singh’s bathroom, where he was left for dead.
The badly beaten man managed to escape and alert police, but not before his firearm, wallet and Cherry IQ car were allegedly stolen.
Kazmi was recently arrested and made an application for bail at the Ntuzuma Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
State prosecutor Stan Miloszewski opposed bail for Kazmi, which was upheld by magistrate Ravi Pillay.
Singh was arrested a day after the February 7 attack on her old acquaintance and the State did not oppose bail because she wasn’t regarded as a flight risk and she is a mother of two minor children.
Police claim Singh, who had met the man at a hardware store, continued to converse with him through text messages. She planned with Kazmi and Mackenzie to lure him to her house, where he would be robbed.
Mackenzie was arrested in July while allegedly attempting to falsely report at the Ntuzuma police station that she had been a rape victim. The investigating officer, Sergeant Andre Moses of SAPS Newlands East, was alerted and unbeknown to Mackenzie, sat in on the interview.

Residents warned against consuming dead fish washing up at Umhlanga and Umdloti beaches – video
The eThekwini Municipality has sent out a warning to residents against collecting and consuming dead fish and crayfish that have washed up on the beaches of Umhlanga and Umdloti, north of Durban.
The public has been asked to refrain from fishing, surfing and swimming on the beaches after a video of the dead fish on the beaches emerged on social media.
The municipality said it was investigating what caused the marine life to die.
“It is considered serious and can affect one’s health if collected and consumed.”
According to reports, run-off water and chemicals reached the ocean through storm water drains after firefighters battled a blaze at a chemical plant at Cornubia started by looters on Tuesday.
“The public is advised to refrain from all recreational activities, including fishing or surfing, bait collection and picking up of dead species in this area,” said the municipality.
“Collecting or harvesting of any marine living resource in the area is temporarily prohibited until the cause is determined and the threat has abated.
“Authorities are investigating the source of the pollution and cleanup companies are trying to contain the spill.”
