Cape Town - Slain Rhythm City actor Dumi Masilela's wife - Simphiwe Ngema - was at her husband's side during his final moment. 

Masilela was fatally shot during an attempted hijacking and was rushed to hospital on Wednesday night.  

When Ngema arrived at the hospital, Masilela was still conscious and the couple exchanged their final words. 

Masilela was saying that he was in a lot of pain, and Ngema comforted him before he was taken to the operating room.

Family spokesperson Mpumi Phillips told The Juice that Ngema didn't think that it would be the last time she would speak to her husband. 

"She thought that the doctors would operate and treat his injuries. She didn't think that he would die that night," Phillips said.

When asked how Ngema is doing following the sudden death of her husband, she said: "She is traumatised, but she is an incredible woman. She is staying strong for his family."

The couple got married in May, 2017.
