Alex FM releases statement after its music manager murdered
By Isaac Mangena, Chairperson, Alex FM.
It’s with great pain to inform you of the sad news of the passing on of our staff member Joshua Mbatha.
Dj Josh(32) as he was affectionately known, was the Music Manager at Alex FM.
He was on his way with two of his colleagues Sammy Ramodike and Matome Mookanedi, when they were stopped by about three gunmen at 7th Selbourne.
They took their phones and shoes before shooting Joshua in the chest.
He succumbed to his injuries at Masakhane clinic around 21h00.
We are with his father and other family members now at the clinic.
Station Manager is also with his team comforting each other.
Let’s keep the family and Josh’s colleagues in our prayers.
May his soul rest in peace.
A promising career gone too soon.
Funeral details and Memorial Service will be announced in due course after consultation with the family.
