Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Khama Billiat was
robbed at gunpoint at a convenience store, the club confirmed.

the floor as the perpetrators stripped the store of its belongings.

harmed in anyway,” he said.
“I spoke to him not so long ago and is he also happy to have
escaped with his life.”
