The actor, who is famous for his role on Yizo Yizo as Gunman, was found dead by his wife, according to reports. It's alleged that he committed suicide.
Celebs have taken to social media to pay tribute to late actor
Christopher "Gunman Bazooka" Khubeka. We first me him when he carved his own space in YizoYizo 1. He turned what was a bit part role into an unforgettable character. He was at the heart of the anarchy but he also had incredible comedic timing. He was a versatile actor. In Zone14 he improvised like a virtuoso jazz musician. He truly had a depth of talent. It is tragic that his star has gone out so long before its time. Bomb salutes him. Rest In Peace Gunman.

Actor Christopher Kubheka acted in #Zone14 & #YizoYizo. He will never see the money owed to him when #Hlaudi sold his talent to #Multichoice pic.twitter.com/lKt6e6tE7h — Jack Devnarain (@JackD157) June 12, 2017
