Well-known businessman and socialite Kenny Kunene said he has been shot at in an apparent attempted hit in Johannesburg.

Kunene said that he was travelling on Corlett Drive when a white vehicle pulled up in front of him and the occupants began shooting at his car.

He was travelling with a passenger.  Both of them were shaken but unhurt. Kunene said he would open a case at the Bramley police station.

Kunene has been outspoken about his support for Sunday Independent editor Steven Motale.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa attempted a court interdict to stop the newspaper publishing stories on his private life. Motale said he had received death threats.

Kunene has also published stories about the so-called Ramaphosa email leaks on his website called the Weekly Xposé.
