Bhekimpilo Ndovu’s friend who was with him when he was gunned down says his killer targeted him the Chronicle reports. Bheki was shot dead on camera at a service station in Johannesburg and since his death, his family have accused his wife of killing the popular Malayitsha cum businessman.
A friend identified as Allan Chigome narrated Bheki’s last minutes to the Chronicle: Chigome said:
On the day of his fatal shooting, his driver was readying to leave for Zimbabwe.Bheki loaded his vehicle at Ezinjeni, a popular pick up point. He instructed the driver to proceed to the filling station to fill up his tank as he was following behind to make the payment. This was a normal routine for us,” said Mr Chigome.
“It was just the two of us in his car. As we arrived at the service station his driver was still parked at the serving point. We were exchanging general banter as we disembarked from the car. I remember he had bought a few things and instructed me to put them in the driver’s seat
In a split second as he moved across the vehicle, I heard gun shots. I scurried for cover and when I was confident that I was safe I was gutted to discover Bheki had been shot dead
That’s the only thing that makes sense. Why him alone if it was random. No one else was shot. So, I’m clearly convinced that his killer had a specific assignment, just to end his life. When we inquired about who had done it, witnesses said they just saw him jumping into a vehicle and speeding off. No one knows who he was
Bheki will be buried at his rural home in Tsholotsho today.
