News24 understands that the shooting may have been a hit, however Dlamini said the motive behind the attack is unknown. A case of murder is being investigated. 

Alleged underworld kingpin, Nafiz Modack, who was an associate to the former soccer star told News24 that he was a family man and not one for “war”. 

“My comment [to] those who shot him [is they] should be afraid, very afraid. I know who was after him,” he said

No suspects have been arrested.
