Former communications minister Siphiwe Nyanda was hijacked in Rooihuskraal, Centurion on Tuesday night, ANC spokesman Keith Khoza said.
Khoza had written a post on his Facebook account asking people to be on the lookout for three black men driving a blue Porsche Panamera in Centurion.
“The person that was robbed is General Siphiwe ‘Gebhuza’ Nyanda. The suspects took the Johannesburg route,” he added.
Police spokesman Mack Mngomezulu was not aware of the hijacking and said he could only verify the information at a later stage.
Khoza said he had been notified by friends that Nyanda had been hijacked, then decided to spread the word on the social platform.
The car had since been recovered, he believed.
“Two people have come back to me to say that the car has been found. There were things removed from the car,” he said.
The car had been recovered near where the hijacking had taken place, Khoza said.
Nyanda’s whereabouts were not immediately known as his phone was off, but Khoza believed the former military commander was in a safe place.
