Singer Tebogo Lerole was robbed Sunday morning while driving near Newtown, Johannesburg, by what he says was a group of 12-15 armed gunmen


The Kwela Tebza member took to social media to relate the experience: "Some of them wanted me killed and some of them wanted to put me in the boot of the car and Lord knows what intentions they had. Seven to eight boys jumped into the car while I tried wrestling one of the guys who wanted to stab me, two other guys jumped in the brawl and their intention was now to take my clothes," he said.

While the gang dispersed after making off with his car, the vehicle was eventually found crashed into a house in Meadowlands‚ Soweto.

Tebogo has since forgiven the perpetrators.

"After talking to family and friends I have forgiven all the young men who almost took my life, but I will never forget what they put me through. I am thankful to my creator for protecting me on Sunday morning... crime is real in South Africa, stay alert at all times because crime doesn't sleep,” he added.
