Popular DJ and MC Peter Mashata Shot Dead in Soshanguve

Peter Mashata, a well-known comedian, MC, and DJ, whose real name is Peter Mabuse, was reportedly shot and killed in Soshanguve over the weekend.

He is said to have performed his final set at his All Black event at Epozini Lifestyle in Soshanguve Block G at midnight.

Klaas Mabela, a friend who was traveling with the deceased, told the police that when they left Epozini Lifestyle, they approached TUT North Campus Soshanguve on Aubrey Matlala street where there was traffic and destruction on the road.

The driver had to reduce speed and all of a sudden there were gunshots from the passenger side where the deceased was seated.

The driver sped off from the scene and drove to Akasia Hospital Netcare for medical attention. The deceased had multiple gunshot wounds and did not respond when Mabela called his name.

Mabela was also shot in his left shoulder but received medical treatment.

Gauteng police spokesperson Colonel Noxolo Kweza said Tshwane police had opened two dockets for murder and attempted murder.

“The shooting involved two men, aged 46 and 45, during the early hours of Sunday. One victim died in the hospital while the other was injured,” said Kweza.

“The two victims were driving near the Tshwane University of Technology in Soshanguve when shots were fired at their vehicle. The suspects fled, and police are following several leads.”

Kweza said they were appealing to anyone with information to contact 08600 10111.
