JOHANNESBURG – A botched hijacking, a hit gone wrong or, just pure theatrics.
Shortly after facing a hail of bullets, Kenny Kunene gave a live television interview saying, quote “this was certainly a hit”.
The controversial billionaire says gunmen opened fire on his car in Bramley on Tuesday night.
However, South Africans, responding on Twitter, are sceptical of the incident at best.
Many say the damage on the vehicle appears inconsistent with gunshots.
Police say they're investigating, after recovering some evidence at the scene.
“Our members were there with Mr Kenny Kunene at some point and they managed to pick up some items that will be used as evidence in the form of spent cartridges.”
“Police will be investigating all the circumstances surround this shooting incident as well as interrogating the allegations made by the complainant,” said police spokesperson Mathapelo Peters.
eNCA reporter Michael Appel found a bullet head lying in the road.
After being notified, the police returned to the crime scene to retrieve the evidence.
