Hlatshwayo was a DJ at Jozi FM for five years and presented a weekend slot. The former Generations and Yizo Yizo actor was shot and killed on Sunday night at a Pub in Pimville, Soweto.  The CEO of Jozi FM, Mpho Mhlongo, took to Twitter to confirm his death, who was also a DJ on the local radio station.

Police said four men had been taken into custody for questioning in relation to the murder.

Hlatshwayo, 40, and his friend Oupa, ‘Chom Chom’ Duma were gunned down on Sunday evening when they tried to stop two women from being robbed of their cellphones. The robbers turned on them and shot both of them. They were declared dead on the scene.
