Mhlengi Gwala, a 27-year-old triathlete from South Africa, is lucky to be alive this week after nearly being hacked to death by three men armed with nothing but a handsaw who set out to rob him during a bicycle ride.

Gwala (pictured above) was training as a cyclist in Durban, South Africa, on Tuesday when three men wielding what was originally reported as a chainsaw (!) confronted him and took him to a bushy area.

It turned out the men were in possession of a very blunt handsaw as their instrument of choice — but what they did to Gwala with it was no less horrific.

After the triathlete offered them his bicycle and all other possessions, the men allegedly decided to

With only a few hundred meters left, the athlete began to shake and came to a halt, until his 28-year-old brother rounded the corner and scooped Jonny up to help him finish!

As South Africa's Henri Schoeman pulled ahead, Alistair supported Johnny in his arm until they reached the finish line — where he pushed his 26-year-old brother ahead of him to secure second place.

Alistar, who took bronze in the race, told NBC Sports after the finish:

Oscar Pistorius Removed His Prosthetic Legs & Walked Around The Courtroom To Prove A Point — But Will It Change YOUR Opinion??

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad SadOlympicsControversy

no title

Wednesday marked a very difficult day in court for Oscar Pistorius — also known as the "Blade Runner" from the London 2012 Summer Olympics – as he removed his artificial legs and walked on his stubs!

As you remember, the paralympian was convicted in 2014 of shooting and killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentines day the previous year.

After being sentenced, another judge overturned the original ruling stating that there was a "fundamental error" and that Pistorius "never offered an acceptable explanation for" shooting Steenkamp through a door.

Well today, during the third day of sentencing in the North Gauteng High Court, the Olympic athlete was advised by his lawyers to show he was in a state of vulnerability when he shot his GF. To do this, the 29-year-old decided to take off his prosthetic lets and walk around on his natural legs.

Oscar has continually said that he thought it was an intruder that entered his home in Pretoria, that he did not mean to kill Reeva when he shot through the bathroom door four times.

Ch-ch-check out the footage of Pistorius visibly shaken as he walks around the court (below)!

no title

Stephen King fans have been blessed (and cursed) with dozens of film adaptations of his work over the years.

But after many attempts, the author's long-running book series The Dark Tower will finally see life on the big screen!

The eight novel sci-fi/fantasy series, which King regards as one of his magnum opus, follows a gunslinger on his quest to find a fabled Dark Tower — but things get WAY complicated, as he meets many of King's other characters from different worlds along the way.

And it looks like this film already boasts quite the cast — Idris Elba has finally been confirmed to be playing the hero Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey is playing the mysterious Man in Black!

King admitted he is "a little bit surprised" that the film is finally in production, as the first novel in the series was published way back in 1982! Speaking to EW, he said:

Rapper Mos Def Arrested In South Africa!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!

Mos Def isn't having a good week!

According to a government rep in South Africa, the rapper was arrested for violating local immigration laws this past Thursday.

Apparently the musician, whose real name is Yasiin Bey, revealed an unrecognized "world passport" when attempting to leave the country. While Bey used an American passport to enter the country back in 2013, his current identification is a no-go.

Not only did Yasiin present illegal documentation, but he also overstayed his visitor's permit back in 2014. Translation — South Africa ain't happy.

Now the actor is facing a court order to vacate the country within 14 days. The legal move also means Mos can't enter the country for the next five years if he doesn't attempt an appeal.

The situation is especially tricky since the The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy star has reportedly been living in the country since 2013 alongside other undocumented family members.

Hopefully Yasiin is able to clean up this legal mess sooner than later!

That was fast.

Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius, who shot his girlfriend to death on Valentine's Day 2013, will leave prison and move to house arrest next week.

A parole board at the prison where the 28-year-old was serving a five year sentence for manslaughter made the decision after an initial ruling to release the athlete in August was cancelled.

According to South Africa's Department of Corrections, the board "approved the placement of offender Oscar Pistorius under correctional supervision as from 20 October 2015."
