Katsande survives “traumatic” hijacking incident in Johannesburg

Willard Katsande

South Africa-based former Warriors captain Willard Katsande says he has been left traumatised after being involved in a gruesome hijacking in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

A year ago, Katsande was left with injuries and his German-manufactured SUV damaged after being assaulted during a road rage incident on the West Rand on the day he made his debut for Sekhukhune United following his departure from Kaizer Chiefs after a 10-year stay.

The latest incident happened at Southgate Mall on Tuesday.

The car was fortunately recovered in Eldorado Park by the tracking company though with extensive damages.

The case is with the police. Katsande confirmed the incident to this website adding that he lost business and personal property worth thousands of rands including his cellphone plus cash which was in the car at the time of the incident.

He had just returned from a visit to Zimbabwe. The 36-year-old has been hard at work building his business profile which includes construction and his popular clothing line Boss Ya Mboka Kitoko Makasi

“I’m traumatized right now because of my previous road rage experience,” Katsande said in an interview with KickOff.

“I have been left with bruises because the three coloured guys who hijacked me in the parking lot at Southgate Mall dragged me on the ground.

“The car has been recovered in Eldorado Park but is badly damaged inside and ransacked of what was inside.

“This is a huge inconvenience considering that there was business property inside the car which will now affect the business,” says Katsande in detailing what happened.

Katsande played 18 games for Sekhukhune this past season and is staying on for the next campaign.
