55 year old Amazement Mnisi was excited when he bought a new car and last Thursday, he decided to take it home for his parents to bless.
The man thought the drive from his home in Etwatwa, Ekurhuleni, to Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga would be fun but it turned out to be a trip of terror.
On the way, he stopped on the side of the road to pee but while he was still relieving himself, he suddenly felt a cold iron bar on his neck. When he turned around, he saw a group of thugs, who took his car keys and tied him up.
He was bundled into the back of his new white Ford Ranger double cab and driven to Bethal, Mpumalanga, where the thugs dumped him in the veld and drove off.
“I ran to the N4 off ramp, bleeding from the neck, as I had been stabbed by the thugs.
“Luckily, Telkom technicians saw me and took me to Middelburg Police Station,” he said.
“I was taken to hospital and later I opened a case.
“I thought I was going to die during the hijacking.”
Amazement said he was hijacked on the N12 offramp near Daveyton, Ekurhuleni by the three thugs.
Police spokesman Captain Ramothakhi Maqabe said cases of hijacking and assault were opened.
