Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana midfielder Bongani Zungu survived a hijacking earlier this month at his home in Duduza.
The Siya crew has learnt that Zungu had just finished packing his VW Golf 7, when he was approached by gun-wielding hijackers.
Seeing them armed, Zungu ran for cover, and managed to escape unscathed, but the criminals did take his car and get away.
Despite suffering this un-nerving ordeal, the 22-year-old started the pre-season with his Sundowns' team-mates, and impressed on the recent pre-season tour to Zimbabwe.
Zungu is the second Bafana midfielder to survive a hijacking in recent months, with Ayanda Patosi hijacked in Gugulethu in early June.
