In what will come across as a really heartbreaking development, a man identified as Dyke Motsepa, has suffered horrific tragedy just days after his wedding, far away in South Africa.
He was a was the general manager of an Edleen Dairy shop died in hospital on Friday morning, March 31, after being shot during an armed robbery in Midland, Geuteng, South Africa on Thursday night, March 30.
Kempton Express revealed that, Dyke Motsepa tied the knots with his wife Kido Nyareli on Saturday, March 11. He sustained bullet wound to the stomach, while being treated at Tembisa Hospital.
A South African police Service, said that Motsepa was wounded during an armed robbery at Pizzarology, a wholesale dairy distributor on Modderhill Road next to CR Swart Drive, during which two armed men ambushed two general managers and a security guard.
According to a co-worker, Emmanuel, he and Motsepa had just finished locking up the shop at about 6:30pm when the incident occurred, saying: “I was waiting in the car for Dyke as he was setting up the security alarm. That was when one of the security guards at the complex said he noticed a white Golf parked inside the complex. He went to the car and told the person inside they were not permitted to park there. But the person ignored him. A few moments later, I heard an extremely loud bang on my side of the car [driver’s side]. It was a man carrying a big gun telling us, ‘Phumani! Phumani emotweni!’ (get out of the car), which we did."
Emmanuel further said that: "They started asking us where the manager was and we told him he was gone. They didn’t believe us and told us we were lying. The guy with the big gun saw someone looking down from the flats nearby and became nervous. He called someone and told them to bring the car around because someone was watching them. As we got up, I heard a huge bang. When I looked, I saw the second guy with the small gun had shot Dyke in the stomach.”
