According to Goal, his attackers made off with his cellphone.

An angry Kerr tweeted:

Exciting feature: Check out news exactly for YOU ➡️ find "Recommended for you" block and enjoy!

"Anyone who points a gun at you, please don't fight back, the cowards can f*ck off and die. I'm a small % of what's happening; it’s an utter disgrace not just for me but for millions who have had this done to them. It's a massive wake-up call for me to never again trust anyone."

2022 has been a wretched year for Kerr. In September, Moroka Swallows parted ways with Kerr after a poor run of results, as per The Citizen.

All of this came after he had been stuck in an impasse with the Department of Home Affairs, which had been denying him a work permit. He was forced to sit in the stands, forced to watch the Birds struggle to get their season going without him.
