Parties, funerals hijacking hotspots


HIJACKERS are now targeting people at parties and funerals.

However, cops have noticed and are not folding their arms. Police in Daveyton, Ekurhuleni, are now monitoring these events after they received a number of complaints.

Sergeant Connie Moalusi said: “We are serious about maintaining law and order in the kasi, and thugs must know we are leaving no stone unturned.”

Moalusi said cases of hijacking were on the rise but they were working hard to stamp them out. On Saturday, 14 May, revellers at a festival were happy to see a police presence.

Nkosinathi Ntuli (34) said: “My friend’s car was hijacked at a funeral last month and later found dumped somewhere else.”

Moalusi said cops were also doing stop-and-search operations to look for hijacked cars.
