In a shocking turn of events, Sphamandla Mabonga, boyfriend of South African musician Londie London, was involved in a shooting incident at Tempo restaurant in Johannesburg. The incident left three people injured, including Mabonga himself.
According to a statement released by the restaurant, the shooting occurred after a disagreement between Mabonga and the establishment’s security. It was reported that Mabonga attempted to enter the premises carrying firearms, which is strictly prohibited. The security team rightfully denied him entry, leading to a heated argument.
Unfortunately, the altercation escalated, resulting in gunshots being fired. Two staff members and Mabonga were injured in the process. The restaurant expressed its regret over the incident and emphasized its commitment to maintaining a safe environment for its patrons.
Reports suggest that Mabonga is currently under police guard in the hospital. It is believed that he was shot in the ribs after going outside to retrieve his own firearm. The shooting initially took place outside before gunshots were heard inside, injuring even the receptionist.
Mabonga was initially admitted to the Mediclinic Hospital in Morningside but was later transferred to another facility for further treatment.
This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of strict security measures and the potential dangers that can arise from conflicts involving firearms. Establishments must enforce policies that prioritize the safety of their customers and staff.
Our thoughts are with Mabonga and the other victims of this unfortunate incident, and we hope for their speedy recovery.
