Horrific moment for Zimbabwean truck driver hijacked in SA – Video

Driver

A horrific moment for Zimbabwean truck driver hijacked in SA – Video. The whole incident was captured on the onboard dash cam in the truck as the semi nu_de driver was tied up and told to lie down in the back of the truck. A video circulating on social media shows a Zimbabwean truck driver being hijacked in South Africa by three guys. It is alleged the truck driver had parked at a lay bye for the night on the notorious N3 route which links Durban and Johannesburg.

It is however of deep concern that the hijackers spoke in Ndebele and indications, though not confirmed would suggest they are also Zimbabweans. With the festive season upon us, many are looking for a quick buck. In the video, the hijackers seemed to struggle to move the truck and had to ask their victim to show them where the handbrake was and how to get the truck moving. The visibly shaken driver, who was only wearing his underwear, then shows them the handbrake and still, the hijackers could not move the truck. Instead, the truck only moved a few meters and cut off.

This incensed the hijackers who threatened to kill the man. All this was happening while the men had a gun pointed at their victim. It is not clear what the truck was carrying. In most truck hijackings, the hijackers are said to drive around with their victim and then drop him off at another location, they do this to make sure the truck is not being followed or in case of any anti-hijack buttons in the truck. After this, the hijackers then go to a warehouse to offload their cargo. They usually then dump the truck at the side of the road.

South Africa sees a lot of hijackings on a daily basis and in other cases, the drivers themselves are believed to be working with the “hijackers”. Many cases have been reported of drivers disappearing with loads. It’s believed they sell the cargo then skip the border and go back to Zimbabwe.
