Kunene was caught in a rain of bullets possibly meant for Sunday Independent editor Steve Motale.

The Citizen understands that well-known businessman and socialite Kenny Kunene has been shot at while driving a car in Johannesburg.

A witness at the scene where police are investigating the aftermath of the shooting said that as many as 21 bullets may have been fired at the car, many of which left visible damage on a blue BMW.

According to the witness (businessman Gayton McKenzie), Sunday Independent editor and friend to Kunene Steven Motale had been meant to be travelling in the car, but bodyguards moved him to another vehicle prior to their departure. Motale has said he’s been receiving death threats ahead of and since publishing stories about Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa’s personal life and his alleged affairs.

Kunene has also been breaking stories about the so-called Ramaphosa email leaks on his website, Weekly Xposé.

It is understood no one was injured.

This is a developing story. More to follow.
