Ex-Prasa CEO Lucky Montana allegedly assaults Media24 investigative reporter

It is alleged that axed Prasa CEO Lucky Montana threw a brick at a journalist in Pretoria on Thursday night.

According to the Media24 investigative reporter Pieter-Louis Myburgh, Montana threw the brick at his work car as he sped off, narrowly avoiding a head-on collision, leaving a dent in the vehicle.

Myburgh says that he was assaulted on one of Montana's development property's.

I was on the site of building project. The property belongs to Mr Montana and I was visiting the location as a part of a current probe into his upgrades and his contracts. Mr Montana saw me standing across the road and gestured towards me. I thought it best to get back into the car.

Pieter-Louis Myburgh, investigative journalist

According to Myburgh, when he drove up to the property to state his intent to Montana, the ex-Prasa CEO approached him with a large grey brick.
