Twitter users have reacted to the incident
@Vincent_Biyela “Everytime I’ve been to ka Max I’ve always seen Max Mqadi just chilling at the parking lot talking to some people with no bodyguards on site. Could tell the dude was comfortable in his neighborhood. It’s sad now cause he won’t be comfortable anymore.”
@SpheDludla “Max Mqadi should really thank his guardians he is alive to see yet another day. KZN hitmen usually don’t leave their targets breathing, let alone able to drive for kms afterwards. He must get 24/7 bodyguards henceforth. Speedy recovery Max.”
@African_Spring “I’m so heartbroken for what happened to Max Mqadi. The enemy of township economy is within. We’ve been blaming the wrong people.”
