Cape Town - A local soccer boss was shot dead outside a stadium in East London on Saturday.
According to the TimesLIVE website, Siphiwo "Mawawa" Nyobo, a businessman who owns of Tornado FC, was killed as he was leaving North End stadium after attending a soccer game.
The report added that several bullets were fired at Nyobo's car.
The soccer boss, who is also a traditional healer or 'Sangoma', was not alone in the car and his fellow passengers were reportedly taken to hospital.
At this stage it's unclear what caused the shooting, but the local newspaper, the Daily Dispatch, reported last week that SAFA president Danny Jordaan was due to address ABC Motsepe League
clubs in East London on Sunday over squabbles.
Tornado FC recently made headlines when they took on PSL giants Kaizer Chiefs in a Nedbank Cup Round of 32
fixture in January and forced Amakhosi into extra time, where they eventually lost
1-0, via an own goal.
Tornado FC are coached by former SuperSport United, AmaZulu and Santos
goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng and are top of the table in the Eastern Cape
Stream and are on the verge of heading into the playoffs with only
eight matches remaining.
Police spokesperson Captain Hazel Mqala could not be reached for immediate comment.
