A man lost his life while he was having sex with a prostitute.

Edwin Tshuma of Zimbabwe, was in Midrand, South Africa, where he allegedly paid a prostitute for sex and got more than he bargained for.

Boksburg SAPS spokesperson Kwendzakwakhe Ngobese said that Tshuma, parked his car next to the mall on Rondebult Road, before going to the nearby bushes with the prostitute on Friday afternoon.

While having sex, 4 men stabbed Tshuma several times, and stole his valuables.

Ngobese said that police received a call from a member of the public that a man had been stabbed.

The victim suffered severe injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Three of the alleged 4 killers, aged 20, 28, and 29, were arrested over the weekend. They have been charged with murder and are likely to face additional charges, including robbery.

According to Ngobese, police have arrested dozens of women who worked as prostitutes in this area, many of them are using the bushes along Rondebult Road.

He admitted that despite the crackdown by police on prostitutes, women still come back to the area to make fast money.

This significantly increases crimes such as rape, assault and robbery in the area, police said.
