Robbers stole Generations actor, Mandla Hlatshwayo's shoes after killing him.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Hlatshwayo's friend and Jozi FM station manager Mpho Mhlongo revealed that the former "died trying to save someone else".
"As the ladies were leaving, they were being robbed. Mandla apparently heard shots and ran out to help. In the process he got shot. He died trying to save someone else," Mhlongo said.
TshisaLIVE reports that Mhlongo saw his friend's dead body at the crime scene. "I got there and found him motionless," Mhlongo told the publication. "He was just lying there."
The station manager added that Hlatshwayo's shoes were missing when he saw the body at the scene.
"He had no shoes on," Mhlongo revealed. "They took his shoes. They took his life and then his shoes. It's all been very traumatic."
