TshisaLIVE reports that the YouTuber Sibu Mpanza’s mother was shot dead in Philippi East, in Cape Town, by an unknown suspect on Thursday, 3 August.

The TV personality’s mother was driving her grandchildren to school when she was shot three times. It is unclear at this stage if the shooting is related to the taxi strike in the Western Cape.

“On their way, less than 10 minutes after they left the house, they stopped at a stop street, and they were cut off by what they thought was a cab. Someone got out of the back seat of the car and pointed a gun at my mother. The man then proceeded to shoot five times, got back into the car and left. My mother was murdered.”

Mpanza adds that his mother tried to prepare for the worst-case scenario by having policies and funeral plans but unfortunately, after Covid-19, she was just unable to keep up with the payments.

“Which is why I am here, humbly asking for your help. If you have watched any of my videos, you know how much I loved my mother.”

“She was everything to me and the reason why I had the confidence to leave my entire family and moved to Joburg to pursue my dreams.”
