Khuli Chana can finally relax. A settlement has finally been reached with the SAPS in the Joburg High Court after his shooting drama which took place in 2013.
His story made headlines in a case of mistaken identity.
This was after the Hape le Hape hitmaker was chased by cops who believed he was a kidnapper.
They fired nine shots at him with a rifle. A bullet was lodged in his right finger.
Khuli opened a case of attempted murder against the SAPS, and sued the minister of police for damages.
The rapper allegedly claimed about R2 million, but the cops refused to pay the amount.
Khuli then took the matter to the Joburg High Court. A settlement has been reached, but the amount has not been disclosed.
Vuma reputation management said the trauma weighed heavily on Khuli’s mental and emotional health, but he was kept strong by the support of his family, friends and fans.
They also stated that he remained professional amid the trauma, and acknowledged that the SAPS had been co-operating and taking a calm approach to the matter.
Khuli has accepted an apology from the SAPS.
He believes this trauma could have affected his income, but partners and brands that believe in his talent and integrity have supported him and he has signed more deals with them.
“I am grateful to be alive,” said Khuli.
“Justice has been served. I want to put this behind me and focus on the future and my music, which I want to be my legacy beyond this trauma.”
