Cape Town - The Daily Voice can reveal that a love triangle was the cause of a fatal shooting outside a popular Cape club.
Foster Kadima, 30, collapsed outside Chilli Bar in Southfield after he was shot in the eye by an unknown gunman.
Sadly the dedicated dad of three died four days later in hospital.
Police are now still hunting for the alleged shooter who fled the scene in a red Mini Cooper.
The Daily Voice can reveal that the gunman was targeting a love rival – but instead, he allegedly shot Foster when the club manager came outside the club to assist a patron who was being threatened.
The woman, whose identity is known to the Daily Voice, has a baby with one of the rivals and was dating the other.
This week, Chilli Bar’s owner explained that the one love rival had tried targeting the other, known only as Cheslyn, outside the club when he spotted him in the early hours of Sunday, October 13.
Owner Sonny Naidoo said: “What happened here was unfortunate.
“That night we had our normal team of security at the entrance.
“A group of six men tried to gain entry to the club, but they were politely turned away as they weren’t dressed according to our dress code.”
Naidoo said things turned sour after the group spotted Cheslyn.
“They left but spotted one of our patrons, Cheslyn, about 60 metres from the club’s entrance,” Naidoo said.
“The six then started a fight with Cheslyn due to an old beef they have [they are linked to the same woman].
“When Cheslyn was attacked, we could see the commotion and didn’t get involved, but his two friends came outside and went to help him.
“They were fighting with belts far from the club, but the scuffle went on and grew closer to the club’s entrance.
“That’s when one of the six men went to the red Mini Cooper.
“The gunman came running towards the club entrance and that’s when Foster came out to calm the situation.
“The gunman ran up to Cheslyn and pointed the gun in his face. He fired a shot but hit Cheslyn in the hand.
“He fired another shot that hit Foster in the left eye.”
As Cheslyn ran for his life, the gunman continued shooting, hitting him in the shoulder and a bystander who was struck in the buttocks.
Naidoo added: “Foster died a hero, he tried saving Cheslyn and his two friends, but instead he was shot.”
He said he saw Foster on the ground as the gunman kept shooting.
“He didn’t care that Foster was shot, he continued to fire more shots and then casually jogged off into the opposite direction where he jumped into a red Mini Cooper and sped off,” he said.
“I’m not sure who was driving but there was a female in the car while the whole scene played out.”
Foster was rushed to hospital but sadly passed away four days later.
Naidoosaid Foster was a good friend and well loved, which explains why he had more than 300 visitors in the space of two hours after being admitted to hospital.
Foster leaves behind 10-year-old twins, a five-year-old son and his 30-year-old wife.
Sonny said this incident was the first tragedy in his 16 years at the club.
“We want the public to know that Chilli Bar is a safe environment and that we will continue to keep it free from crime.”
