Simon Rudland

Police are investigating after co-owner of Gold Leaf Tobacco Corporation Simon Rudland was shot outside the offices of Fair Trade Independent Tobacco Association (FITA) in Norwood, Johannesburg.

According to FITA chairperson, Sinenhlanhla Mnguni, CCTV footage shows suspects shooting at Rudland’s car as he drove into the offices of the association with his lawyer.

It is quiet clear from the footage that they meant to harm Rudland. They appeared just as he was driving into our offices and after shooting, they drove off.

Rudland has since been hospitalised and is being kept in intensive care.
