Football legend Maimane Phiri has escaped with minor injuries following a shooting incident in Alexandra, Johannesburg.
FARPost learnt of the shooting on Thursday evening and in establishing the facts, we were informed that the former Bafana Bafana midfielder was shot on the hand and leg at his pub near Kwa Madala Hostel.
Phiri was then rushed to hospital and as of Friday morning, he was doing fine.
“Yes, that’s true story,” revealed our source. “There were two guys fighting for a girl and one pulled out a gun and shot at the other guy and then Maimane, and some two guys called Vusi and Mike wanted to go help and he shot at them and then pointed the gun on his head and killed himself,” added our informant.
It’s alleged that the shooter killed two people and FARPost would like to send our condolences to the families of the deceased.
We also wish Phiri a speedy recovery.
