A columnist on business economist and politics Phumlani M Majozi took to Twitter to tell his followers that he was hijacked at his home.
"I was hijacked at my house last night. As I drove into the complex armed men followed me. They took all I had with me - my phone, my watch, my wallet and of course the car. I don't have a car anymore. I have been a victim of crime too many times in Joburg. I am grateful for life!" he tweeted.
South Africa is safe if you are sensible. But let's not sugar coat it! It has reputation for very high crime levels which include rape, murder, and hijacking. South Africa is ranked among the unsafest countries in the world and citizens live in fear.
The South African media is consistently filled with local stories of crime, violence, and injury. Internationally too, South Africa has an increasingly dubious reputation as a highly dangerous place.
