Drip Footwear founder Sehoana fears for his life after business partner killed in suspected hit

Glenda Ndlanzi, MD of the footwear company, was shot dead outside her home in Pretoria under mysterious circumstances

The founder of SA’s popular sneaker brand Drip Footwear Lekau Sehoana says he is scared for his life after the murder of his business partner on Monday.

Glenda Ndlanzi, MD of the footwear company, was shot dead outside her home in Pretoria under mysterious circumstances. Nothing was taken from Ndlanzi during the attack.

Sehoana on Wednesday told Sowetan that he was shattered by Ndlanzi’s killing and could not believe she is no  more.  

“I am not OK. I am grieving at the moment. I do not know why this happened and I am confused about it. I also fear for my life because I do not have any answers about this,” said Sehoana.

In a tweet he shared on Wednesday on his Twitter account, Sehoana said: “My life will never be the same… I am shattered.” 

Ndlanzi played a key role in Sehoana’s success and helped him build the brand which many people have been able to identify with. Her murder has left question marks.

According to a source, Ndlanzi was shot in the head in her driveway while attempting to access her place of residence. The gunman fired several shots before he fled the scene without taking any of her valuables.

Gauteng police spokesperson Capt Kay Makhubele confirmed that a case of murder is under investigation and that no arrests have been made. “At the moment, the motive for the murder is something that falls within our investigations but we cannot comment on the matter,” said Makhubela. 

Drip Footwear’s spokesperson Thato Matuka described Ndlanzi as the rock of the brand. 

“She was instrumental in the development, establishment and growth of the Drip brand. Ms Ndlanzi was passionate, loyal and determined to see to building the brand.

“She was astute and sharp-minded, a calm leader and always looked for opportunities to innovate the business and took care of her staff,” said Matuka. 

Matuka said Ndlanzi’s contribution was immense. 

“When Lekau started the business, the only person he could reach out to was Glenda. Her contribution goes as far back as when the business started,” said Matuka.  

“The family is devastated and still in shock. They are trying to understand what is happening and why it happened.”

Matuka said he did not want to speculate on the reason for her killing, saying the family did not want to discuss the nature of her death as yet. He said details pertaining to Ndlanzi’s memorial service will be announced soon and pleaded for the family to be given space to mourn.
