It was a relaxing afternoon. Kaizer Chiefs boss Bobby ‘Bobsteak’ Motaung was spending time with family and friends after a soccer match…
But then the bullets started flying! And now, Bobsteak is traumatised and thanks God that he is still alive. It happened in Atteridgeville, west of Pretoria, last Sunday when Motaung was ready to head home after spending the afternoon with his cousin, who owns a catering business, after the Chiefs VS Supersport United match.
Said Bobsteak: “I went to unwind with my cousin on Sunday after the match, together with my friends. Everything was well until it was time for me and my driver to leave. When we were outside, four men approached us with guns and started shooting. I was lucky to escape, but they robbed my driver of a watch, bag and also took his firearm.”
But Motaung is not sure if the incident was just a case of pure robbery or something more sinister… a hit! He said he found it surprising that the suspects were not interested in taking the car, but just started shooting.
“I don’t know if this is connected with the three fake Hawks officials who were denied bail. It seems that I might be targeted by some kind of syndicate,” he said.
He also says that safety is now his top priority and that it is unfortunate that anyone has to live in fear.
Atteridgeville police confirmed that a case of robbery had been opened and they are currently in the process of investigating.
Sunday Sun previously reported that Motaung had helped police in Midrand in the arrest of three bogus Hawks officials who wanted to swindle him off R600 000.
