Just got an email from SA star, Khuli Chana’s PR company saying he was shot at and injured by police in an incident earlier this morning. Here’s what the brief statement said:
Breaking News: Multiple Award Winning Artist, Khuli Chana, WRONGFULLY shot at and injured by police!
– Police open fire on Khuli Chana’s vehicle with intent to kill – apparently mistaking him for a kidnapper in the early hours of this morning (Monday), at the Caltex garage on New Road in Midrand, Johannesburg.
– Khuli Chana is lucky to be alive after the excessive lethal force used. He was alone at the time of the shooting, on his way to a gig in Pretoria.
More details to follow in official press statement this afternoon.
I hope Khuli is doing okay, given the circumstances. He’s easily one of the most talent and yet one of the nicest guys in the game. As for the cops, I hope a full investigation into their behaviour and motives is underway.
