Jozi FM CEO, Mpho Mhlongo, says Hlatshwayo died on the scene outside a pub in Pimville where he had a meeting with the owner.
Ladies at the pub were leaving and these guys came and were about to rob them. They screamed. And Mandla being the Mandla we know, then jumped to the assistance of the ladies.— Mpho Mhlongo, Jozi FM CEO
When he confronted the guys, they shot him, and shot the guy behind him.— Mpho Mhlongo, Jozi FM CEO
They had taken his shoes, and ran away.— Mpho Mhlongo, Jozi FM CEO
Mandla's body was outside, and the other guy was inside.— Mpho Mhlongo, Jozi FM CEO
Mhlongo says Hlantshwayo would always jump to assist others.
He says Hlantshwayo's father was also shot to death after being robbed of his cellphone when Hlantshwayo was still young.
So to umama that thing comes back again, that it was my husband now it's my son dying through barrel of a gun.— Mpho Mhlongo, Jozi FM CEO
