Police spokesperson Nqobile Gwala told the BBC that a case of attempted murder is being investigated.
The motives of the attack remain a mystery, as the three individuals didn't steal anything from Gwala, other than his chance to compete in the South African national championships taking place this month. Sandile Shange, a training partner of Gwala's, told the BBC that Gwala is in hospital and his injuries are not life threatening. Jackson was quoted on TimesLIVE: "The plastic surgeon said they are more than likely able to save the leg. He will be able to walk and run again but it will take some time", Shange said. They kept on cutting and when they got to the bone, because the saw was not that sharp, the saw got stuck.
He was severely injured after the men used a chainsaw to try and saw off his legs.
When the attackers reached bone, and were unable to continue because of the blunt blade, they fled, allowing Gwala to crawl back to the road where he was able to flag down a vehicle and be transported to hospital.
