Description DM2008110307:SAED:SOCIAL:CRIME:PERSONALITIES:APR 1960 - "I Am The Man Who Fought The Msomis" - Badman - smoke coming from his nose. When the Msomis ruled Alexandra with their guns and their knives, and everyone was scared, there was just one man who stood up to them, and swapped them bullet for bullet. He was Badman Msibi. He tells you here how the Msomis tried to get him, how they cornerd him with their guns, how they shot him up, and how he fought back. (Photograph by Drum PhotographerBAHA)gangs
