Cape Town – The death of international mixed martial arts fighter Sboh Ceeh Khuboni, aka the Destroyer, in an alleged shootout with a cash-in-transit guard in KwaMashu, KwaZulu-Natal, has been met with a mixed response on social media
While some have offered their condolences, others have been less forgiving, especially since the 34-year-old Khuboni had also been involved in a hijacking incident in Sydenham in 2012 where Shaber Asmal was shot dead outside a mosque parking lot.
Police said two alleged robbers were killed in the shootout at the Bridge City Shopping Mall on Monday, while the remaining five robbers fled the scene in a minibus taxi.
One of the guards was treated for multiple gunshot wounds at the scene before he was airlifted to hospital by helicopter.
KwaZulu-Natal Hawks spokesperson Simphiwe Mhlongo said Khuboni and Mxolisi Mntungwa had been identified as the suspects who were shot in the attempted robbery.
