Publicist Sheila Afari said Chana was shot and wounded at the Caltex garage on New Road in Midrand.

“Police opened fire on Khuli Chana's vehicle with intent to kill - apparently mistaking him for a kidnapper in the early hours of this morning (Monday)... Khuli Chana is lucky to be alive after the excessive lethal force used,” a statement said.

Chana, whose real name is Khulane Morule, was reportedly alone at the time of the shooting.
