Private forensic expert could have target on his back over Kunene investigation

Private forensic consultant Dr David Klatzow says his life may be threatened amid his investigation into the alleged hit on businessman Kenny Kunene.

The forensic scientist was hired by Kunene to investigate his shooting incident and has dismissed suggestions that the shooting incident was staged.

Klatzow claims that he received information from a man who was instructed to "make life unpleasant" for him and stop any court action from materialising.

He told me that he's been paid to make my life difficult and had been paid to make trouble for someone else; to either assassinate or shoot or whatever.

I'm assuming that it is not a hoax and I'm concerned about it.

According to Klatzow, seven bullet shots struck the vehicle Kunene was driving at the time of the incident.

He says police investigators have neglected the vehicle as crucial evidence and failed to examine the wheel and body work.

Klatzow believes that two bullet marks could be matched to the weapon used in the crime, and other fragments that could be used in a prosecution.

It was an attempted hit on whoever was in the passengers seat and Kunene was not driving his own car.

Kunene drove the car away at some speed, he reversed in to the pavement - you can see the marks on the pavement and the car - and he drove to a security complex not that far away.

The cartridge cases where picked up by police after some time, without marking spots where they were picked up and police last intertes in the car.

It is a less than efficient piece of work by the constabulary.

We're in the killing fields and the killing season at the moment and it is very concerning.
