Rapper Shot for Mistaken Identity in South Africa

The shoot-first-ask-later practice is alive in Johannesburg, where a South African Hip Hop artist suffered bullet wounds at being mistaken for a kidnapper demanding ransom. Khulane Morule, aka Khuli Chana, stopped at a gas station en route to a performance in Pretoria, the same gas station police were patrolling in search of a grey BMW reported to be a kidnapper’s car. Chana’s car was blue, and it failed to stop at an unmarked police barricade.

The rapper’s vehicle took six “warning shots,” one lodged in the driver’s index finger and the shrapnel for another piercing his back. As of this morning, a suspect in possession of a police ID and unlicensed firearm had been positively identified and arrested, the victim rescued, and Chana discharged from a hospital to recover at home.

“The reality of the matter is this is police brutality. The police need to be more circumspect when they decide to use lethal force,” said the rapper’s manager, Refiloe Ramogase. “They almost took the life of a new father over a case of mistaken identity – before his (infant) daughter ever even said his name.”

This Spring, Khuli Chana won three South African Music Awards, including best album of the year for Lost in Time, an unprecedented distinction for Hip Hop by the organization.
