The Star is reporting that Khuli's first claim us R1 565 827,80 for the shooting, which has apparently left him with permanent scarring and disfigurement, emotional trauma, psychological stress and shock, future medical expenses and future loss of earning capacity. 

In the second claim, the rapper reportedly wants the minister to pay R516 638.83 for claiming that he tried to kill the police with his car. According to the paper, the minister's spokesperson Musa Zondi could not say whether he would defend the lawsuit as he hadn't seen the papers. The papers were reportedly filed on Monday.
