It was meant to be a glorious day for Pitso Mosimane.
But the excitement of his football side’s victory last week was short-lived . . .
After the coach learned his wife was hijacked!
The Mamelodi Sundowns manager’s wife, Moira Mosimane, survived her nightmare on the same day her hubby’s Pretoria outfit thrashed Premier Soccer League rivals, Golden Arrows, at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in the capital.
According to Captain Balan Muthan of Honeydew Police Station, a case of hijacking has since been opened.
Said the captain: “The hijacking took place outside her home in Honeydew, north of Jozi, on her driveway on 17 April.
“Two suspects were arrested in Benoni, where the vehicle [a black Range Rover] was recovered. Our investigations are continuing.”
According to insiders, the incident has left Moira in a state of shock and trauma.
Said the informant: “She was coming from a friend’s place. When she arrived home, she was accosted by these thugs, while with her child. They didn’t harm them, but they took the car and sped off.
“She’s still in shock, and the coach was informed of the incident immediately after it happened and had to rush home to be with her.
“It was after his side’s victorious game against Golden Arrows.”
The second mole described Moira as a bubbly and down-to-earth lady.
Insisted the source: “She is sweet and very supportive of her man. Moira is an easy-going person.
“She’s still traumatised following the incident. Remember, she almost lost her life – and anything could’ve happened to her on that night.
“At the end of the day, it’s not about the material things in life. Rather, it’s more about how her life could’ve been ended suddenly in front of her child by thugs, had they decided to pull the trigger.”
When the SunTeam finally got hold of the Mosimanes this week, the healing couple referred enquiries to Mamelodi Sundowns’ spokesperson, Thulani Thuso.
Responding to queries in an email, Thuso stated: “Mrs Mosimane is still traumatised by the incident. You must understand she was with a child in the car. At this moment, the family hopes justice will prevail.”
