POLICE LAUNCH INVESTIGATION INTO DEATH OF SHEBESHXT’S DAUGHTER

Shebeshxt — real name Lehlogonolo Chauke – lost his daughter when his Volkswagen Polo collided with a truck and overturned on the R37 road next to Smelters Mine in Limpopo on Saturday, 8 June.

The publication reports that the police have requested for statements from the musician’s family. They will also be taking statements from Shebeshxt’s partner, Kholofelo Chuene – who is Onthatile’s mother.

Kholofelo, who was also in the deadly accident, was hospitalised after suffering head and lip injuries.

The Twerka hitmaker – who suffered a broken leg, abdominal fracture, and head injuries – will be checked for his blood alcohol levels.

POLICE RESPOND

Limpopo police provincial spokesperson Malesela Ledwaba said it was standard procedure to investigate what could have led to the accident.

“The police must adhere to legal protocols and pro- cedures while conducting their investigation to ensure that the rights of all parties involved are respected and that the investigation is conducted fairly and in accordance with the law,” he said.

JULIUS MALEMA HELPS SHEBESHXT

The Ambulance rapper’s hospital fees are being paid by Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) president Julius Malema who demanded he be taken to a private healthcare facility after he was left unattended at a public hospital.

“Shebeshxt does not have medical aid, so they took him to a public hospital, where he was not assisted for some time,” said a source revealed.

“Fearing that he could lose his life, Julius Malema was then called, and he demanded that Shebe be taken to Netcare Pholoso Hospital, a private healthcare facility in Polokwane, to get medical help.”

Mpho Chauke – who is Shebeshxt’s mother – thanked the EFF leader for his generous act.

“I am so grateful for Malema and what he did for my son,” she said.

She further thanked the everyone else for the support during this dark period in their lives.

“Even the MEC here in Polokwane has been supporting us so much and is making things easier for us. People here have shown me how much they love my son, and I am grateful.”
