South African TV presenter, Johann Botha killed in armed robbery attack

Popular South African TV presenter, Johann Botha, has died after he was shot during a robbery at a bar in the Maboneng Precinct in Johannesburg. The owner of the bar was also killed in the attack.

Botha was popular for presenting the long-running wildlife show 50/50 on SABC2. He was also a producer on the investigative news programme Carte Blanche and worked on KykNet’s Projek Aardwolf. The news of his death was confirmed in a tweet by Pretoria FM reporter, Anton Meijer.
