A few minutes later he was shot dead!
While Tshepo and other youngsters were celebrating, his uncle Eric Mahome (41) saw a white VW Golf speeding down the road.
Eric ran out to stop it. He wanted to speak to the driver about the danger of speeding when there were kids on the road.
But he didn’t get the chance . . .
It is alleged that a passenger who was in the car came out and started shouting at him!
Eric’s sister Celesta Mmusi said: “During the shouting there was a struggle between my brother and the occupant of the car.
“The next thing I saw there was a gun and Eric was shot.
“Tshepo tried to intervene by saving his uncle, but he was also shot and the gunman fled.”
Tshepo’s gogo Mary said: “He was a good boy who would not harm anyone.”
Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said cases of attempted murder and murder were opened and no arrests have been made.
