Actor Patric Molefe Shai kills himself in his home garage.

The world joins South Africans in mourning the sudden death of South African actor and director Patrick Molefe Shai.

He is best known for his roles in the television series and shows Soul City, Generations, Zone 14, Ashes to Ashes and Zero Tolerance. He was one of the founding members of South Africa’s Free Filmmakers.


According to media reports, Shai died in his garage by suicide from his home in Dobsonville.

In a statement posted on social media, the family requested anonymity: “It is with great sadness that I announce the death of veteran actor Father Patrick Shai. He passed away this morning (January 22, 2022).

He added, “We sincerely request that you provide for the family to cope with this traumatic event. More details will be shared in due course.”

A few weeks ago, Shai was in a war of words with Cassper Nyovest which became increasingly a real struggle.

Casper won the match.
