“According to information, an unknown suspect shot at a vehicle of a 49-year-old man while the complainant was inside the vehicle in a parking area. No injuries were reported. The suspect fled the scene. Circumstances surrounding this incident are under investigation, with no arrests yet,” she said.
Naudé said he did not want to speculate about who was behind the attempt on his life.
He said when he was arrested on allegations of extortion in March, police confiscated his firearm.
“The police took my damn gun. The gun wasn’t even mentioned in the case and I have to make an application at the high court to get it back. So, of course, the gangsters also know I don’t have a gun. So that’s why this happened, because they know I don’t have a gun with me,” he said.
Naudé is closely associated to alleged underworld boss Mark Lifman and alleged Sexy Boys gang boss Jerome “Donkie” Booysen.
A nightclub security racket, allegedly run by Lifman’s group, was challenged by an opposing racket, allegedly headed by Nafiz Modack and Colin Booysen, Donkie’s younger brother. The fight, which started in 2015, saw Modack and Booysen arrested for allegedly forcefully taking over security of clubs formerly controlled by Lifman.
