    Len Cloete unable to talk, right side of body paralyzed [WATCH]

    Len Cloete, the father of seven, shot by police at a lodge in Muldersdrift in November last year, is still unable to talk. The incident also paralyzed the right side of his body.

    LEN CLOETE WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD BY A POLICE OFFICER LAST YEAR

    In a video of the incident that has gone viral on social media, a naked Len is seen shouting at the police. He takes a firearm out of the bed drawer and cocks it while swinging it around in front of the police officers.

    Len is then seen grabbing a firearm for a police officer.

    Another police officer at the scene fires a single shot and hits Len in the head. He falls to the ground.

    Len has been in and out of ICU, fighting for his life since the shooting.

    LEN IS AT HOME BUT HE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN

    According to his wife, Chantel, Len is at home but will never be the same again.

    The Independent Police Investigative Directorate national spokesperson Lizzy Suping said they still have to interview Len.

    “We need to allow the investigation process to take its course. IPID has to interview the victim. Unfortunately, he is unwell at the moment.”

    IPID SAID THEY STILL NEED TO INTERVIEW LEN

    Luke Enslin, a lead investigator for Specialised Security Services, said due to severe damage to the head, Cloete might not be able to speak in the foreseeable future.

    Len’s family appointed the private investigation company shortly after the incident.

    “His medical condition is of such a nature that he cannot talk; he has serious brain damage. One of the medical reports detailed that the doctors had to remove shrapnel from his brain, and this injury is the reason why he cannot speak.”
