Activist Lili checks out of hospital after attempt on his life
IT WAS through a miracle that he survived being hit by two bullets while a third, aimed at his heart, missed altogether, Ses’khona People’s Rights Movement leader Andile Lili said in Cape Town yesterday.
With a smile on his face and waving, Lili walked out of Tygerberg Hospital to a hero’s welcome from hundreds of his supporters.
He was discharged from hospital on his 39th birthday after spending two weeks recovering from three bullet wounds. Lili spoke for the first time about the attempt on his life on November 5.
“What happened on that day was a miracle. When I was shot I felt really powerful. I had a powerful voice. I could still walk, I could still talk. Thank God I’m still able to be here with you today,” Lili told about 500 of his supporters.
The two gunmen are still at large.
